We decided to search of the best tacos and Mexican food in Charlotte. After trying multiple places, we settled on two favorites.
SouthBound in Southend
SouthBound offers a destination getaway from the hustle and bustle of life in the Queen City. The vibe is relaxed and the menu is simple featuring authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican street food with a Southern California twist.
Utilizing only the freshest locally sourced vegetables, herbs, fruits and ingredients, menu highlights include handmade corn masa, scratch-made chili marinade and fresh pressed juices. Redefining the taqueria as we know it by pairing art and music with tacos and tequila, SouthBound offers locals and visitors alike an oasis to unwind … so close to Southern California you can almost smell the fresh sea air.
Everything we had at Southbound was fantastic. It’s open air concept is nice, what looked like hundreds of tequilas and the Tacos and Tamales were the best we’ve had in years.
Midwood Smokehouse has an amazing BBQ taco with a bacon wrapped jalapeño inside. We don’t have to write anything else here. Go get one or 5.
