There is at least one day a week (maybe for you it’s on a Tuesday) that the craving for tacos hits. And since it’s your duty to treat yourself well, you must give into it. While tacos may not be at the forefront of what many associate with Edmonds, you might be surprised at how many options you have for indulging in crunchy, greasy, meat and veggie-laden deliciousness. 

It’s time to taco bout Edmonds tacos! 

Ahi Tacos at Bar DojoWhere To Find Tacos In Edmonds

Bar Dojo, the piece de resistance of this list, offers an occasional Taco Omakase night, which beautifully displays its menu’s Chino Latino-Chinese influence. Wear your fancy stretchy pants for a ten-course meal curated by Chef Luis Brambila with scratch-made Pacific Northwest ingredients. Add on optional cocktails while you’re there. Only twelve seats are available for each experience and each seating lasts about two hours. Outside of the omakase experience, Chef Luis sometimes offers a taco special on the regular menu, like their Ahi Poke Tacos or these Honey Adobo Rock Fish Tacos (honey adobo breaded rockfish tossed in kumquat fish caramel sauce, citrus jicama slaw, nixtamalized red corn tortillas, orange supremes, micro cilantro, and lime). Come often to eat it all! 

Barkada Edmonds, known for its Filipinx Pacific Island Fusion food, occasionally offers taco specials. Keep an eye on their social media pages for fun eats, like these Pork Belly “Tsitsaron” Tacos or Sisig & Kawali Tacos.  

Tacos at Casa Oaxaca in EdmondsAt Casa Oaxaca, right next door to Bar Dojo, opt for one of their specialties, like the Tacos de Calabacita: Three fresh handmade tortillas, stuffed with Mexican squash, tomatoes, and onions with queso fresco, and cilantro on the top. If you’re feeling seafood, opt for their shrimp or fish tacos. 

Head to Calypso, right by the ferry, for happy hour and order yourself a plate of Sweet Potato Tacos (two adobo sweet potato tacos, chayote slaw, pineapple pico, corn tortillas, served with rice and beans) with a side of Carribean vibes. Keep your eyes on their social media for taco specials, too. 

Keep the Churchkey Pub menu on refresh to see if they’re serving their popular Bahn Mi Pork Belly Tacos, their pub twist on a Vietnamese favorite that includes three soft corn/wheat tortillas filled with beer braised pork belly topped with pickled carrots, daikon, fresh cucumber, and jalapeno, and drizzled with Churchkey’s house-made zesty Bahn mi sauce. Don’t bring the kids, though. Churchkey is 21+. 

Flyin’ Taco, a taco truck with a regular schedule at the Edmonds Lutheran Church, sells made-to-order brisket, pork, chicken, shrimp, and veggie tacos. Each one is served with cheddar cheese, red cabbage, avocado cilantro crema, cotija cheese, and pickled red onion. Hosting an event? Ask them about catering!

Kahlo’s Cantina, a contemporary Mexican restaurant and bar steps from the ferry with an expansive patio (perfect for sunny days), offers at least eight different types of tacos. Order yours with a choice of two sides, add a margarita, and settle in for a guaranteed good time. 

Tacos at La Casa de Amigos in EdmondsWhen you drive up to La Casa De Amigos, a Honduran food truck in Firdale Village, you have choices: Individual tacos (asada, birria, chicken, whole beans in corn tortillas with lime, radish, and pico de gallo) or a Taco Plate (three tacos served with rice and beans). We recommend Quesabirra con Consome, too: 2 large corn tortillas filled with beef birria, cheese, chimol, red and green salsa, and topped with consomé, radish, and lime. Whatever you order, you can’t go wrong. 

Las Brisas offers a few different ways to experience tacos right Downtown Edmonds. Sit by the fire and order a set of Short Rib Street Tacos, Carnitas, or Fish Tacos made with halibut and mango salsa. Don’t forget to add your drink of choice! 

MARKET Edmonds keeps its popular Rockfish and Shrimp tacos on the menu all year. Swing by to see what all the TikTok fuss is about at this popular Downtown destination. 

Tacos at Santa Fe Mexican Grill in Edmonds Kids and adults alike can enjoy lots of taco options at Santa Fe Mexican Grill & Cantina right by the Downtown fountain. Here, your fish (pescado) tacos come with flaky cod. One of the most popular options, the Tacos al Carbon, comes with three street-style corn tortillas filled with your choice of skirt steak or marinated grilled chicken. Your protein is topped with onions and cilantro, which is garnished with lettuce, pico de gallo, and avocado. They’re served with rice and beans, so if you eat it all, consider a post-meal nap imminent.
