This weekend, you could wait in line at El Si hay for the 20th time, or you could try something new. Here are a few Dallas tacos to try if you haven't yet had the pleasure.
Barbacoa Estilo Hidalgo
From the outside, it looks like an automotive shop, but if you make it to this taqueria on one of the two days a week they're open, you'll be rewarded with some of the best lamb barbacoa money can buy. Don't leave without trying a cup of the consome, a garbanzo beans and barbacoa soup that cooks beneath the roasting lamb, collecting the fat drippings and inheriting their savory flavors.
Revolver Taco Lounge
When Fort Worth's Revolver Taco Lounge finally opened its long-awaited taco lounge in Deep Ellum, taco fans rejoiced for good reason. Aside from brunch and a late-night taco window, this romantic little spot will feature cocktails and already serves one of the best octopus tacos in the city.
Mr. Bigotes Taqueria
Opening Sunday, April 30, at 2200 W. Clarendon Drive, this new taqueria from the family behind Mariscos La Reyna will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.

Q Tacos at Macho's Cantina
Quesa on Cedar Springs is now Q Tacos at Macho's Cantina, a combination cocktail bar and late-night taco window. Sip mezcal cocktails on the patio and don't skip the brown butter-cauliflower taco.
We've all had Austin's Tacodeli by now, right? If you haven't, it's a good time to get acquainted: this Austin import is about to open a second location this fall on Walnut Hill Lane.
