The 2017 Taco Battle

The 2017 Taco Battle is part of the 2017 Tournament Extravaganza, click here to see the full schedule/line up.

The taco scene of Western New York has really improved in recent years. After decades of American-Mexican fare dominating the area, a surge of genuine authentic Mexican cuisine has shown up in the city of Buffalo and to the surrounding suburbs. After some discussion with the Buffalo Eats staff, we came up with the following 16 restaurants to compete against each other for the title of Best Taco in Buffalo. This mini tournament features a wide range of competitors, from Buffalo’s go to fast food chain Mighty Taco, to the growing Lloyd Taco empire, to the seasonal Monte Alban taco truck in Medina. From September 4th through the the 8th, we’ll be determining who has the best Tacos in Buffalo.

Like in the past, the polls will run from 8am to 1o pm on our twitter page: twitter.com/buffaloeats
