About Concord’s Taco Trail Venues

To be an official Concord Taco Trail stop, venues must meet the following criteria:

1) The primary business must be Mexican food
2) Must be located within Concord city limits
3) Must be a single location or one of a small number of locations, no national chains.

Most of the taquerias and restaurants offer cuisine made from authentic family recipes specific to different regions in Mexico. Tortilleria El Molino and Mercado Del Sol both specialize in Michoacan style food such as carnitas and buche. Taqueria Autlan offers Yucatan specialties like al pastor and cochinita pibil, and Jalisco-style restaurants like Salsa Mexican Grill and El Yahualica, create favorites such as birria, and beef or shrimp tacos. Guadalajara Grill simply specializes in “California Mexican.” Most of the eateries do offer a mix of regional styles along with their specialty dishes, and many of them also make their own tortillas on site.
There’s much to explore, so fire up your taste for adventure and let the Trail be your guide!
