We’re finally going to taco ‘bout it: who serves the best tacos in Austin?

According to USA Today, Austin is the best taco city in the nation, meaning (at least to us) you basically can’t go wrong with any taco within city limits.

In the past, y’all have helped us decide the best food truck (Spicy Boys Fried Chicken) and best brewery (Meanwhile Brewing). Now, it’s time to throw down the gauntlet and decide which taco reigns supreme in ATX.

Here’s how it will work:

Using this survey, nominate your favorite place to get a taco in Austin. Feel free to nominate as many local businesses as your heart desires. We’ll put the top eight in a bracket and have you vote again in qualifying rounds.
