SANCHO PISTOLA’S 19 West Girard, Northern Liberties And now for something completely different. Sancho Pistola’s – a place highly recommended by my listeners and social media followers – is the spot to venture to if you’re tired of the basic beef and fish tacos. I’m not, by the way, but original is...

WHOLE FOODS TACO TRUCK Plymouth Meeting Mall There’s a culture around Whole Foods that I’ve always found fascinating. They’ve got Tuesday morning yoga (I’ll pass), “Beers and Bites Thursdays” (count me in), and enough movie nights and concerts that you don’t even need to go there for the food...

WAHOO'S TACOS 3180 Chestnut St, University City Right there on the Drexel campus is the only East Coast outpost of a California-based chain, which explains the beach-and-surfboard motif on the walls. Wahoo’s Tacos has a rather lame draft beer selection, but the tacos are above average. The hook...

TORTILLA PRESS 703 Haddon Ave, Collingswood, NJ It took me a while to get to South Jersey on this year’s food hunt. It took me even longer to find a spot that was worthy of making the finals of my Clash of the Tacos contest. Ahh, but find it I did, right on Haddon Avenue in downtown Collingswood,...

DISTRITO 3945 Chestnut St, Philadelphia We are nearing the end of this year’s massive Clash of the Tacos, with just a handful left to explore. I purposely left a few of the most highly regarded spots for late in the hunt, hoping to finish strong. And Distrito is unquestionably a strong spot for...

LA CITA 911 Marlton Pike W, Cherry Hill It’s easy to drive past this small spot, located where cars whiz by on Route 70 in Cherry Hill. And there’s not much to make it distinctive when you go in. Like 90 percent of the Mexican restaurants we’ve visited during Clash of the Tacos, it’s an orange-and-...

BUENO ONDA 1901 Callowhill St, Philadelphia This is big-time chef Jose Garces’ Baja-inspired tribute to tacos, quesadillas and margaritas. So we had pretty high expectations while heading there. I dunno, maybe it’s because we’ve already hit up 40 taco spots since March. But there was nothing here...

VIDA 5 Brookline Blvd., Havertown Thursday is Taco Night at this sharp-looking and popular Havertown haunt. And while the price (three tacos for $16) may not feel like a bargain, the quality here is topnotch. So is the creativity. Vida carries the standard choices on its daily menu (Pro al Pastor,...
