Where should we go on our taco tour of Tyler?

Y’all really like tacos, huh?

Last week, we invited Loop readers to help us create the best ever (and quite possibly the first ever) guide to tacos in Tyler. Dozens of you applied, and our panel is now complete. Also, we’re thrilled to announce that our GoFundMe for this project was fully funded in just two days, thanks to the generosity of readers like you.

The taco tasting begins next week, and we’ll be posting all of our reviews here at The Loop.

There’s one more thing we need your help with: where should we go? Tell us all the hole-in-the-wall, out-of-the-way spots only the real taco connoisseurs know about. If you prefer to keep your hidden gem a secret, that’s up to you! But your fellow Tylerites will benefit from your generosity if you decide to spill the frijoles.

There’s a few ways you can share your taco tips — pick one that works for you:

Thanks in advance, Loopers!

Thanks for reading this story. Just one more thing. If you believe in the power of local journalism here in Tyler, I'm hoping that you'll help us take The Loop to the next level.

Our readers have told us what they want to better understand about this place we all call home, from Tyler's north-south divide to our city's changing demographics. Power, leadership, and who gets a seat at the table. How Tyler is growing and changing, and how we can all help it improve. Local arts, culture, entertainment, and food.

We can't do this alone. If you believe in a more informed, more connected, more engaged Tyler, help us tell the stories that need to be told in our community. Get free access to select Loop events, behind-the-scenes updates about the impact and goals of our work, and, above all, a chance to play a part in bringing more fresh, in-depth, unexpected journalism to Tyler.
