Ten Best Tacos in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

Nicole Danna
Alegria prepares tacos on a hot griddle in its small kitchen, flavors like pollo, carne asada and lengua (cow tongue).
6. Alegria Tacos
You won't find mariachis, oversized margaritas, or stuffed chihuahuas at this tiny taco restaurant, but what Alegria lacks in style and size, it makes up for in authentic Mexican eats on the cheap. This husband-and-wife operation is friendly and traditional: they cook their tacos on a hot griddle in the quaint kitchen behind the order station, doubling-up corn tortillas to hold plenty of meat, tomato, chopped cilantro and onion. They usher in a devoted neighborhood crowd daily thanks to affordable prices, like tacos at just $2.75 a piece. We envy the people living above the small corner store; they probably get to lounge in the few patio-style tables outside the front door any time they like, enjoying intricately-seasoned chorizo, chicken, steak, carnitas (even lengua i.e. tongue) tacos whenever they please. Ask for avocado and the extra-hot sauce for more layered flavors.

5. BC Cafe and BC Taco Food Truck
BC Cafe, named for owner Brett Chivari, is the brick-and-mortar spinoff of the caveman-themed BC Taco truck. And yes, he's changed the world -- one taco at a time. Both the cafe and truck specialize in Neolithic-named dishes, with proportions to match. BC Tacos offers up 10 different types of gourmet tacos, served to you in fresh-made hard corn or soft flour tortillas, with your choice of one of their many homemade salsas from pico de gallo and tomatillo to habanero or avocado. They are best-known for their specialty taco, the Caveman, a combination of burger, steak and braised short ribs with lettuce and cheese, sandwiched between two halves of a hard taco shell, then wrapped in a flour tortilla. For the more traditional there is steak, chicken, mahi and pulled pork -- even a vegetarian choice with fried avocado. What taco stop wouldn't be complete without taco dessert, here known as the "Dino Delight" with S'mores in taco form.
