Where to find great tacos in Westchester and Rockland


Earlier this summer, I set out to discover the best tacos in the Lower Hudson Valley. I wanted real, authentic tacos. No gringo food.

I started with recommendations made by lohud readers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Reddit. I tasted tacos al pastor in Spring Valley, crunched hard-shells in Mount Kisco, burned my mouth on chorizo in New Rochelle and (I admit) passed on the goat meat in Yonkers. I even stumbled on a hidden taqueria — a taco speakeasy! — in the back of a Mamaroneck convenience store.
