Yesterday Taco Bell launched a new campaign: "Tacos." Cantina Tacos, that is, with corn tortillas. Heard of those? Apparently the Bell's years of "Meximelts" and Nachos Bell Grande weren't serving the trends anymore.

While Taco Bell was toiling away with test tubes and shredded gym mat meat for their tacos, Jose over here began his awesome journey via DART rail (or bus) to try the best tacos in the land and our photographer Sara Kerens decided to take some photos. In a sort of photographic essay, Sara took a trip to capture the street tacos of Dallas, focusing on Tortas La Hechizera at Inwood and Maple (East Side), beef fajitas at Taqueria La Paisanita, at Inwood and Maple (West Side), and beef fajitas at taqueria El Si Hay in Oak Cliff (601 W Davis St.).

See the full slideshow, The Street Tacos of Dallas, and make the jump for a couple of teaser photos. Mmm...tacos.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
