Besides Amaya's, who has crispy tacos?

Allison L. Mar 31, 2012 07:16 PM

I've been a fan of the crispy tacos at Amaya's for as long as I've lived here. My kids, who used to order the least Mexican things on the kids menu have now grown up enough to appreciate them too, and bug me to go there all the time. I'm actually sick of it. So my oldest says to me "well where else can we go for these kind of tacos?" So can you help my little chowhounds branch out?

Also, if we decide to road trip to SA to do puffy tacos, where should we go?

    I know there are Maudie's haters out there, and I'm only a fan of the North Lamar site, but I do enjoy their crispy tacos. Just standard good stuff.

      I like the crispy tacos at La Morada; they're not in conventionally folded tortilla shells, but rather in tortilla cups, like miniature taco salad bowls.
