The 6 Best Places for Tacos in Savannah

Whether you need a hearty meal or just need a quick snack – tacos are a wise decision. Traditional beefy cheesy tacos will always have a special place in our hearts, but we must admit, we love when local chefs get creative with taco creations. Luckily, Savannah is filled with both traditional and creative taco options. In honor of ‘taco Tuesday,’ we’ve compiled this list of the best places for sweet taco goodness in Savannah.

1. Blowin’ Smoke Southern Cantina

Nestled in Thomas Square, Blowin’ Smoke offers a variety of tex-mex styled tacos. Mostly known for amazing smoked in-house BBQ, this quirky taco oasis combines the best of both worlds: tacos and good southern cookin’.

2. Tequila’s Town

Traditional taco lovers will find a paradise inside Tequlia’s Town, an energetic Mexican restaurant that specializes in using top-notch and fresh ingredients. A huge perk? If you order their guacamole, it’s made fresh right at your table!

3. Treylor Park 

Sweet and savory tacos have never been made better! Treylor Park offers fried chicken tacos glazed with a sweet and tangy honey chili sauce. The kicker? They use pancakes as tortillas! Mexican? Probably not. Delicious? Definitely yes.

Special alert! Today we are offering a freshly sautéed zucchini taco, loaded with guacamole and Foxy salsa. Get two for $6.50 while they last!

4. Foxy Loxy Cafe

Vegetarians rejoice! Foxy Loxy has one of the best veggie tacos in town – complete with pablano and tri-bell peppers and creamy queso fresco. After your taco food coma, be sure to try a Mexican Mocha or a Horchata Latte – Foxy Loxy duels as a coffee shop!

5. The Ordinary Pub

A true Savannah hidden gem, this basement bar and restaurant pairs classic foodie favorites with a modern twist – like shredded chicken tacos with a chocolate BBQ sauce. Tacos at The Ordinary Pub are anything but ordinary!

A smart little lunch!

6. Kayak Kafe’

Fresh, healthy, and tasty – Kayak Kafe’ is the ‘it’ spot for Taco Tuesday. All tacos come topped with avocado, Latin slaw, cilantro sour cream, and pico de gallo. Our personal favorite? The Roasted Lime Chicken!

    Ahhh! Great suggestions! Especially Treylor Park! I will have to say they’re my favorite. I couldn’t disagree with The comment for 5 spot either. Another great place is the distillery… Fish tacos there, the bomb 🙂

    I LOVE both Kayak Kafe & Tequila’s Town for vegan tacos. (As a bonus, both places have TREMENDOUS customer service.) I think I had tacos 4 times when I was in Savannah last Fall. Now I need to try the other places as well! Thanks!
