The region’s seven best taco restaurants as voted by the fans battled it out in an online voting contest to determine the “Best Taco in Indiana’s Cool North.”
In years past, local restaurants have competed in contests to determine the best burgers and pizzas in both the county and region. In 2014, the Becky Burger at The View Tavern was named the “Best Burger in Northern Indiana.” In 2015, Giannetto’s Pizza and Pasta was named the “Best Pizza in St. Joseph County.” It was about time we find out who has the best taco in St. Joseph County.
The St. Joseph County Taco Wars was an extremely tight race that came down to the final day of voting. Los Aces received over 1,300 votes to beat out the ten other participating restaurants and secure the title of Best Taco in St. Joseph County.
Recently opened in November 2016, Los Aces is located on Edison Road in South Bend and serves authentic, soft shell tacos with homemade flavor that is unique to the restaurant.
Los Aces moved on to the regional round to compete against the other county winners to vie for the “Best Taco in Indiana’s Cool North” where they won the Critic’s Choice Award for the Best Taco.
