El Paso is known for its great southwestern food, with everything from Tex-Mex to more traditional Mexican-style cuisine, so it’s no surprise it also boasts some of the best tacos in Texas. Our movers work up quite the appetite every day as they pack boxes, lift furniture, and flex their muscles carefully loading and unloading our moving trucks. When our stomachs are growling, we like to frequent El Paso’s many taco joints for a quick bite between moving jobs. Here’s the list of our favorite places for the best tacos in El Paso:
Opened in the 1940s as Los Tigres and later renamed, Rosa’s Cantina may be best known for its mention in the Marty Robins song El Paso. It sits in an unassuming stone building across the street from a cement yard in the middle of an industrial area and has been popular with El Paso residents for more than 70 years thanks to its cheap, delicious eats. While the kitchen serves up everything from meat loaf to chicken mole, we like stopping in on Thursdays for the chicken taco special – three crispy chicken tacos accompanied by a side of rice and beans. Other popular menu items with our El Paso moving team include the green Chile Cheese Fries and the Chile Con Queso Burger. On weekend nights, Rosa’s is also a great place to hang out with friends and catch live music.
This place is the ultimate lunch spot for the taco connoisseur. Though the main location is brick and mortar, they also have a food truck that caters special events. Tacoholics offers four protein options: sirloin, chicken, pork adobado, and even tofu for the vegetarian crowd. All meats are marinated in a top-secret 21-ingredient blend before being cooked up and folded into a delicious 4” street style corn tortilla (flour tortilla and paleo-friendly lettuce wraps are also available). Choose your meat and toppings, then pile on one of the four fresh, homemade salsas, like the unique Sweet’n’Spicy, which is packed with habaneros and pineapples, or the milder Green sauce, that’s loaded down with tomatillos, jalapenos, and serrano peppers. While you can always order a basic taco topped with onions and cilantro, our crew’s favorite is the Korean BBQ taco, a tantalizing twist on the traditional taco. Finish off your meal with freshly fried churros or sweet sopapillas for dessert. Find Tacoholics at 1613 N Zaragoza Road, just down from the Walgreens at the intersection of Zaragoza and Vista Del Sol.
Rivas Taco Shop
Just a mile down the street from Tacoholics is one of the best-kept secrets in El Paso, the Rivas Taco Shop. Known for SoCal-style grub, this local joint dishes up more than just tasty tacos. Sometimes we like to start the day right with one of the stuffed breakfast burritos, which are served all day, or we’ll take an occasional afternoon break to scarf down the Supreme Fries, which come topped with a mouthwatering mountain of guac, sour cream, salsa, and carne asada. After a particularly grueling day, nothing fills us up quite like the gigantic California burrito or a plate of out-of-this-world nachos. And of course, you can’t go wrong with Rivas’ traditional tacos, with eight different proteins to choose from, including beef, chicken, carne asada, carnitas, fish, adobado, shrimp, and Pollo Asado. Rivas is open Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
