These are without a doubt in my mind the BEST tacos I had during my time in GDL. If you're in the area these are a must.

A must in Guadalajara!!! The very best tacos. The meat is always fresh, they sale everything they have every day. Wide variety of tacos served in small corn tortillas. From the tradicional "carne asada" (just steak) to tacos of beef tongue, pork ear, delicious "al pastor" and many more! I go there with my family almost every Sunday!

When in Guadalajara there is no better place for incredible tacos than at Tacos Providencia on Avenida Ruben Dario.

It's a local place, you might have to wait at the door. It's worth it. Short, simple menu. Small tacos, so you can try a lot of different kinds. recommend the agues frescas as well.

I don't have much to say about this place other than: 1) The tacos are amazing and I didn't ship my pants after 2) We only waited 15 minutes even though there was a line up of like 20 people outside Seriously, if you want tacos, go to this place

I loved the place. many taco choices. I tried Carnitas with buche (amazing), pastor and lengua (tongue tacos). I would like to had more space in my stomach to eat more. I definitely will go again in my next visit to Guadalajara.
