Satisfy your craving for Mexican food at these restaurants serving the best tacos, mole, and barbacoa north of the border.

Ricky’s Tacos, Los Angeles

21 of 31

More of a street-food vendor than restaurateur, Ricky Piña serves habit-forming Mexican food, no matter where he is—a fact proven recently when he had to stop operating in the Silver Lake parking lot he’d occupied for years. He has since popped up in Chinatown, with no bells or whistles, just fried-to-order pieces of golden-fried shrimp, fish, and (occasionally) lobster. These pieces are so big that he layers them on overlapping flour tortillas with shredded cabbage, crema, and pico de gallo. You can bet that wherever he sets up next will draw taco enthusiasts from around L.A. and across the country.
