Growing up I was a big fan of the frozen taquitos from the local mega mart. It was not until I was introduced to taco shops that I realized just how good a true rolled taco, fresh out of the fryer, can be.
Best Rolled Tacos: Santana’s
I have to be honest. I was pretty dissapointed with most the rolled tacos I tried throughout the tournament. Santana’s were okay, but this is not a full-fledged endorsement. The beef was solid, and the cheese properly melted, but in no way were they exceptional.
Caliente-Received the same score in the finals as Santana’s for their rolled tacos. Again, pretty good, but nothing to rush out for.
Worst Rolled Tacos: Aiberto’s
Aiberto’s rolled tacos were horrendous. The taste reminded me of frozen taquitos poorly nuked in the microwave (Note: I always prefered to cook my frozen taquitos in the oven. The result was a crispier shell). They were flavorless, and contained barely any beef. The guacamole tasted like something taken out of a year old package and mixed with water. The only redeeming quality was that halfway through my first rolled taco, the cheese melted to the perfect consistency.
Nobody. Aiberto’s was that bad…
