Best Tacos In Montreal

Forget Taco Tuesday... Tacos everyday!
Best Tacos In Montreal 2019

Let’s be real... tacos are not just for Tuesday, they are good on literally any day of the week. That's why we had to bring you this list of the best tacos in Montreal. (Trust me, this is coming from seasoned foodie with opinions on everything from tacos to gyros... which is like a Greek taco, if you think about it...)

Tacos are a fan favourite to so many of us and the reason for that is because they are so. damn. good! 

People love tacos because there is something for everyone to try, from vegetarian and vegan options to meat-filled tortillas, there is something about tacos that seems to bring people together.

I must admit that a few years back, Montreal was lacking in the taco area, however, we have redeemed ourselves and have since filled our city with some of the most epic taco joints, all of which you have to try. 

In a city that is so rich in culture and so full of amazing food, it comes as no surprise that our city has figured out a way to add Mexican cuisine to their long list of successful eateries. 

Although there are so many amazing taco joints, there are a few that, in my opinion, really stand out! 


Where: 67, Rue Beaubien Est

Located on Beaubien Est near Boulevard Saint-Laurent, this small and quaint taco joint is without a doubt one of the best our city has to offer.

Caifan is not your average taco spot. This eatery goes beyond tacos and serves some amazing soups and alambres as well as some of the most decadent steak tacos you have ever tried.

If you have yet to pig out at Caifan, make it a point to check it out, it is that good.

Tacos Frida

Where: 4350 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest

When it comes to restaurants, there is something to say when it is a family affair. Family-run establishments put a different kind of love into their dishes and Tacos Frida is no different.

Clients can pig out on some of the tastiest chicken and beef carnitas and some of the best mushroom tacos you will ever try.

To make this spot even better, there are also grocery items available for pickup and purchase so that you can bring this homemade goodness back to your place!

When it comes to details, Mais has got it covered.

This taco joint, located on Boulevard Saint-Laurent, offers an amazing variety of classic tacos.

However, where Mais truly stands out is in its innovative dishes like their carrot, pumpkin seed, and lime crema taco, which are even more incredible than they sound.

Where: 51 rue Roy Est

IceHouse was without a doubt my favorite date spot when I was single. Not only is the food incredible but the lone star décor is magnetic.

Although this may not be a typical Mexican joint, this eatery does cook up some of the best tacos in our city, and their chef is one of two Montreal restauranteurs on this season of Iron Chef Canada.

The uniqueness that is found in every bite is what keeps clients coming back time and time again. My favorite dish is by far the fried chicken tacos topped with ranch dressing and of course a big margarita to wash it down!

Trust me when I tell you, IceHouse is a go-to for any food lover in our city.
