If you're craving tacos, you're in luck, as there are plenty of local restaurants that offer delicious and authentic tacos—along with other traditional Mexican fare. Check out our list of where to get some of the best tacos in Des Moines and Waukee:

1. Taco Hangover
265 50th St, West Des Moines

Before you even get to the tacos on the Taco Hangover menu, your eyes have to make it past a collection of delicious bar snacks like pig wings, chicharrón, and shrimp n' lobster jalapeno bombs. That’s just the start of their unique menu offerings, however, as you’ll find Amish scrapple tacos, lager-battered cod tacos, beer-can-roasted chicken tacos, and braised tender oxtail tacos. We suggest pairing your tacos with a margarita, and don't forget to pick up a fried chocolate donut before you leave.

2. Agave Grill
12931 University Ave, Suite 102, Clive

Want tacos, but not in the mood to go out or make them yourself? Agave Grill delivers! You can place your order online and they'll bring tacos right to your door. In addition to tacos, they have enchiladas, burritos, chile rellenos, quesadillas, flautas, chimichangas, and they even have a vegetarian menu. If you need a gift for a friend or neighbor, an Agave Grill gift card is always a good choice.

3. Tres Amigos
304 5th St, West Des Moines

Famous for their margaritas, Tres Amigos also has a full menu of delicious Mexican food. You'll enjoy the homey atmosphere, and if the weather is nice, make sure you try to snag a table on the patio. They have excellent tacos, and if you're feeling adventurous, try the Tacos de Pescado (fish) or Tacos de Lengua (beef tongue). If you just want an old favorite, however, you can never go wrong with their classic pork, chicken, and beef tacos as well.

4. El Rodeo
1234 E Euclid Ave, Des Moines

El Rodeo offers reasonable prices for their lunch and dinner combination plates, and you’re bound to leave there nice and full. It's a great place to bring the kids, or you can meet your friends or coworkers for drinks after work. They have imported Mexican beers as well as piña coladas, daiquiris, and margaritas. When you’re done with tacos, top it all off with fried ice cream, flan, or sopapillas.

5. Tacopocalypse
407 E 5th St, Des Moines

The name is fun to say, and the food is pretty incredible too. What makes Tacopocalypse stand out from the other restaurants on this list is its eclectic menu, which features everything from braised pork to wasabi brisket tacos, and even vegetarian and vegan options. Tacopocalypse also features Masa Fries (corn-and-potato fries), sandwiches, soups, chips and guacamole, and bánh mì—a traditional Vietnamese sandwich.
