Trompo taco shop in Dallas was ranked among the nation's best by Bon Appétit magazine."

From Texas Standard:

In a state where taco is king, assertions of a town's taco superiority are fightin' words, as past events have shown us.

So claiming one specific town is "most improved" is a risky move. But taco journalists Mando Rayo and Jarod Neece say one Texas city deserves that honor. In fact, one of the city's establishments was just named one of the best in the nation.

"It's kind of like, for us, a pleasant surprise," Rayo says. "There's so many styles of tacos, definitely different hubs or neighborhoods that you kind of see, but they have a mix. Kind of like that fusion taco, or higher-end taco, but still with that authentic feel."

What you'll hear in this interview:

– Which city claims the title of "Most Improved"

– Why they've made such a big jump

– Where to go to sample the city's best tacos
