THE GREAT KANSAS CITY TACO DEBATE!!!



Here's Kansas City discussion worth having for the afternoon lunch hour(s) . . .

PLEASE NAME KANSAS CITY'S BEST TACOS AND DERIDE THE SUGGESTIONS OF OTHERS!!!

KCUR asks the question that racist white people always ask TKC. Personally, this horrible Latino blogger prefers Chinese food.

This is an argument that's nearly as good as this town's best burger or best slice of pizza but offers more clues about a person's "street cred" or what they think is authentic. The tragic fact is that Taco Bell still ranks on this list for those who aren't obsessed with poseur status.

Look to this TKC list to find some good suggestions . . . Also, this question really belongs on a Tuesday, and we might re-post some of the more eloquent responses . . .

I like that Sprint Framiy commercial where the milf-y lady says "Tacos" all excitedly while Gor-DON lurks in the background.

That Garza taco is the FATTEST, GREASIEST motherfucker in the Metro.

I'd like to find a whopper size taco that is actually Mexican. These freaking joints that charge 1.99 for a 25 cent taco that sick like Taco Bell are a rip off.

....and a burrito made with home made refried beans, cheese and cubed pork instead of that chicken or ground beef shit.

We love to talk trash about Killer City, but let's have a moment of clarity here: Though a hick town, KC has one of the best art museums in the whole damn country. It also has more excellent taquerias per capita than anywhere outside maybe L.A., the Mission District of San Francisco or San Antonio. If you don't do something dumb that will get you shot by the locals (like going out at night), you're livin' in fuckin' paradise.

Fun House Pizza and Pub in Raytown has awesome tacos, and PBR bottles for 1.50.

In the 70's and 80's it was La Placita. God how I miss that place. Surely Tony you grew up with some La Placitas.

Now you are asking who makes the best taco, not who makes the best mexican or tex-mex style food.

Since that is the question I'll go with a pretty vanilla choice: Margaritas. Since they do the best puffy taco since our dear departed California Taqueria.

But if we are talking mexican food I like Pocos, Patron, even Cancun Fiesta Fresh in westport.

Not a fan: El Camino Real (food safety issues), Ponak's (bland 50s style food)

The cool thing about KC mexican food is whether you want authentic or mexican-american style there is usually a place and it is pretty cheap. It is no SoCal with 50 million Carne Asada places but we are damn close.
