Concord Taco Trail

The East Bay’s go-to destination for authentic Mexican food now has a name: the Concord Taco Trail. 

Concord has long been home to deliciously authentic, family-owned taquerias and restaurants and we’ve rounded up a list of the best for taco lovers to explore. And while the Taco Trail may have made its official debut in 2020, great Mexican food has always been a part of Concord’s heritage and legacy, so we say it all started in 1869. 

Creating the trail involved hours of tasty research, but first we had to establish some parameters. While many Concord restaurants may serve tacos and such, contenders had to meet some very specific criteria to make the cut: 1) the primary business must be Mexican or Latino food, 2) it must be located in Concord, and 3) it must be a single location, or one of a small number of locations (no national chains - sorry, Taco Bell, El Pollo Loco and Chipotle). And while we do love Concord’s awesome taco trucks as well, they are not featured in Taco Trail due to the lack of permanent address. Several of the restaurants do also own taco trucks, however. 

Each of the Trail's nearly 40 locations offer specialty and signature tacos including al pastor, carnitas, carne asada, crispy fish, grilled tilapia, vegitariano, and even filet mignon. There's much to explore, so fire up your sense of adventure and let the trail take you where it will. And when you do discover a glorious new favorite, be sure to take a photo and tell everyone about it at #concordtacotrail, #visitconcord and #concordeats.
