Nothing beats the atmosphere of a busy taqueria where you hear the sizzling of carne asada or get to witness the taquero cutting Al Pastor meat right off the trompo for your tacos. Unfortunately, the scenes of a taqueria have been replaced with limited seating and a quieter atmosphere to maintain safe and socially distanced dining. Although there’s no replacement for the experience of getting tacos, there is an alternative to getting your taco fix on the go! 

Many of the taquerias in Kansas City, KS have adapted to the people's need for stellar tacos and offer easy and quick tacos to go. Grabbing carryout is a great way to enjoy your favorite tacos while supporting our local restaurants and staying safe. 

You can order your tacos online from delivery services like Postmates, GrubHub or Google pickup. The majority of the restaurants participating in our KCK Taco Trail offer carryout and can easily be ordered over the phone.  Listed below are a few making it ultra convenient for you to grab and go!
