2023 Tacos

Editors’ Choice

BuenoMalo, Andover

With a recent expansion more than doubling the space at this Cali-Mex spot, it’s even easier to take advantage of the bottomless rice and beans that come with every dine-in order of tacos (and burritos, too). Options on these soft-corn-flour-wrapped beauties include beef, chicken, and carnitas, naturally, but also fried chicken, cauliflower, and even deep-fried tater tots, for a carb delight. Chef Gabe Pelegrini still stays true to family recipes handed down to owner Franco Lozano III, but also likes to show a distinctively creative touch, especially with seasonal specials. 93 Main St. (interior courtyard), Andover, 978-409-2119,

Metzy’s, Newburyport 

Executive chef Spencer Thomas has evolved this Newburyport mainstay’s menu to include taco fillings like luscious slow-roasted short rib barbacoa, barbeque lemon shrimp, and crispy brussels sprouts. Dine in, and enjoy live music several nights a week, or grab the to-go “Family-style Taco survival kit” for a quick and tasty weeknight meal. 5 Boston Way, Newburyport, 978-255-7347,
