"Midwest" defined as.... where, exactly?
Here in Chicago, I can think of about a dozen places in the city and suburbs.

Jenny might live closest to you if I can remember correctly...
West of Ohio, East of Colorado. I am thinking of possible chains, and trying to stay away from Taco Bell.Originally Posted by caribiner23
I.E. Taco John's, Chipotle, QDoba
The "best" tacos I've had are not at any chain. They're all at independent shops.
Pepe's in Chicago and NW Indiana is okay as local chains go. There's another local chain called El Famous Burrito here which is questionable at best.
For the national chains, I like Chipotle the best, although I usually get the burritos, not tacos. Second-best is Baja Fresh.
Qdoba, to my tastebuds, is like a lower-quality version of Chipotle.
Haven't been to a Taco John's since one enebriated night in 1981. The ones I've been to have all been centered in college towns.

Chipotle makes freaking great burritos. not really the least bit authentic, but tasty none the less.
Casa San Marcos in Tulsa between 21st and 31st on Garnett.
Very good mexican food.. specializes in Mexican seafood. Also very reasonably priced.
any little trailer parked in a parking lot where a mexican grandma and her family are serving tacos to mostly other mexicans.
Come over to my house on Thanksgiving, I'll give you the best traditional Mexican dinner. Meaning you use forks and knives and spoons not napkins and squeeze bottles.
They have those in the midwest?Originally Posted by welfareloser
Common sense is what tells you the Earth is flat.
Oh yeah, they do! There was one place in Garden City, where we lived before, that had 1. Almost always saw at least one customer there ordering. lol Was odd to see it going down the road sometimes.Originally Posted by zenbooty
Yup. You can even find them in some Chicago neighborhoods, set up in vacant lots.Originally Posted by zenbooty
Honestly, learn to make them yourself. Once you get past making a salsa and Guac' cooking thin strips of steak at a high heat is child's play.
Taco's are like the hot dogs of Mexican food, they're easy to make and everyone eats them differently. So they're always best when you get them just the way you want them. Plus they're ten times cheaper to make yourself than buy on the street.
Fly to LA and go to El Tepiac

It's code for I need help getting rid of the bodies of an RIAA swat team. So any help would be appriciated. kthxby."
Why bother with LA when you can goto TJ and get some good carnitas tacos, carne asada tacos, a side of ceviche and quesadillas.
Off in La La Land
heck, my home town of 30,000 has all of about three mexican families... and one of em runs a taco trailer. mmmmmm...Originally Posted by zenbooty

Only if you specifically ask for dog or maybe cats if that's your pleasure, but Koreans like them their dogs but not cats, too damn stringy.
