    As far as local chains go, Anna's gets our vote for consistency, quality, and speediness. Barbacoa tacos are new to the menu; the spicy shredded beef is topped with diced onions, cilantro, and a splash of lime.

    Taqueria Mexico is another Waltham gem. It's a bit bigger than Taqueria el Amigo (with slower service, admittedly), but their chewy pork-rind (chicharron) tacos drenched in tangy green sauce are worth the wait.

    What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in homestyle warmth. We opt for the adobada pork tacos splashed with a smoky red sauce. There's also a glassed-in tray with daily specials like squash blossoms and tamales, spooned up by friendly servers.

    Here you'll find a delicious spicy lobster taco appetizer with avocado mousse and mango salsa. Unlike many tacos on our roster, these are hard-shell specialties (which comes in handy when scooping up that tasty mousse).

    We love the namesake taco at this cozy Brookline spot. This spicy battered pollock taco with salsa fresca, radishes, and spicy chipotle crema is a tiny taste of California in Coolidge Corner. Service is super-friendly, too.

    Ken Oringer's newly revamped Uni has an unexpected treat on its menu: grilled whitefish, charred tomato salsa, and avocado cream cradled in tempura shells.

    Michael Schlow's something-for-everyone Back Bay restaurant has a solid roster of tacos, and we're partial to the fried-chicken variety. It's slathered with a sinful, spicy buttermilk dressing. Not the most authentic taco on our list, but it's satisfying.

    Restaurants and culinary trends come and go, but we cling to one truism: The tuna tacos at East Coast Grill are forever delicious. Their signature dish even feels a bit healthy, coupled as it is with avocado and lime-pickled jicama.

    This sunny South End newish-comer is a welcome addition to the neighborhood, an authentic gathering place for tacos and bigger plates.

    When Deep Ellum announced that they planned to open an adjacent taco bar, Boston rejoiced. And with reason: Lone Star lives up to its name, thrilling even the most jaded Texas ex-pat.

    We nominate it for electrifying breakfast fare. Two messy tacos stuffed with jalapeno-spiked scrambled eggs, topped with adobo sauce and sided with refried beans will wake you up quicker than coffee.

    An offshoot of the fancier Ole across the street, this narrow taco shack's signature dish is a bulbous battered shrimp taco topped with pickled cabbage, cilantro pesto, and chipotle mayonnaise.
