Sad about missing Taco Tuesday?

Chin up! You can get your taco fix on Sunday instead. The Taco Tour on Lake St., named Best Crawl by City Pages in 2016, returns to south Minneapolis this weekend.

Head to the Minneapolis K-Mart parking lot, the jumping off point for the fourth annual tour, which goes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Last year, more than 2,500 taco aficionados joined in the quest for the ideal taco.

This year, the $2 registration fee gets you tickets for two tacos (the rest you'll have to buy yourself), maps, and access to vans that will ferry you to participating restaurants. If you prefer to chart your own destiny, use the map to walk, drive, or bike the route at your own pace. Devour tasty tacos at 10 participating restaurants as you explore Lake St. from Eat St. to Midtown Global Market to the Longfellow neighborhood. Chances are you’ll discover more than just tacos along the way. 

Salsa a la Salsa, Sonora Grill, El Nuevo Rodeo, La Loma Tamales, La Mexicana Supermercado, Las Mojarras restaurant, Taco Taxi, Chinelo Produce Super Mercado, and Taqueria La Hacienda will each share their singular take on the iconic taco. The Taco Tour also features music, dance, and other surprises for participants to discover along the route.
