Where to Order Tacos for Takeout and Delivery Across Canada

Believed to hail originally from Mexican miners who brought lunch to work in the form of food wrapped inside corn tortillas, in late 19th century Mexico, tacos were known as food for the working class (as all the best foods were).

Street vendors soon began selling tacos to miners from their carts, thus popularizing the humble taco as a classic Mexican street food.

With all of our love for takeout, you know we love us some good street food – so we are forever grateful to the kind souls who brought tacos across the border in the 1880s to introduce this delicious snack to North America.

That’s why we’ve compiled this list of spots that offer takeout tacos across Canada:

La Taqueria Pinche Taco Shop (Vancouver, B.C.)

This B.C. Mexican restaurant specializes in tacos and has multiple locations across Vancouver and one location in Victoria. Make sure not to miss their legendary Fish Baja taco on your choice of a 6″ corn or flour tortilla.

Make your next office lunch or family gathering a taco party by placing a group order.
