Tacos el Cuñado Bridge Street
Located on the West Side of Grand Rapids, Tacos el Cuñado received many mentions for best tacos in town. Maria de la luz Martinez and her husband Humberto Alvarez got their start in the taco business at Tacos el Cuñado 2 on Grandville Avenue. Five years ago, they had the opportunity to open their own business, and Tacos el Cuñado Bridge Street was born.
This family-run business continues working and improving each day and prides itself on authentic Mexican food with a friendly staff and fast service. And it doesn’t just stay in one spot! Tacos el Cuñado is out-and-about in the community at events.

City Built Brewing Company
Great tacos at a brewery? That’s what our social media followers say! Influenced by the flavors of Puerto Rico, City Built Brewing Company aims to break the mold when it comes to brewery food. “We took the best of what we know about Puerto Rican food and our experience in my family’s kitchen, added a few fresh, not-so Puerto Rican ingredients, and wrapped it in a shell for convenience,” co-owner Edwin Collazo said. “Otherwise, Puerto Ricans don't eat tacos! We just recognized that West Michigan does.” Thank goodness! Tacos range from mojo chicken to veggie picadillo. With the addition of a highly recommended craft brew list, City Built Brewing is definitely worth adding to the must-eat taco list.

Tacos El Ganadero
The taco menu is short, sweet, and delicious at Tacos El Ganadero. Choose from steak, chicken, spicy pork, or shrimp all topped with cilantro, lettuce, tomato, and onion. Free chips and salsa never hurt either. And who can resist the heat when the menu cautions diners to “Be aware. Some foods may be spicy.” Challenge accepted!
What the locals say: “Even though I recently moved to Texas this is still by far my favorite taco joint! Can't wait to go back for a visit!” Frances P. from Facebook
