Our taco journalists say Taco Cabana is an acceptable fast-food stop for cravings.

From Texas Standard:

In Texas, tacos take priority. But what do you do when you can’t find a taco place? Here are a few taco joints to put in your taco emergency box.

Mando Rayo and Jarod Neece are two taco journalists traveling across Texas tasting every taco in sight for their new book, "The Tacos of Texas". They describe what is acceptable to do when you’re really desperate for a taco – turning to fast food tacos.


“We’ve all done it, even the snobbiest of tacos snobs will say, ‘I’ve never eaten there,’ but come on, we have Taco Cabanas everywhere,” Rayo says.

What you’ll hear in this interview:

– Which of the big three taco chains is the best
– Where to go in case of taco emergency
– What makes a gringo taco
