We recently shared that Oklahoma City came in at number four on a national list of the best cities for tacos in America, so we figured we’d write a post about the best taco spots to try.
Below is a list of Oklahoma’s best taco restaurants based on user reviews. Enjoy!

Chely’s is an up and coming Mexican restaurant in OKC that is gaining a lot of popularity for its dishes. When it comes to tacos, customers rave about the Santa Fe chicken plate with grilled chicken, pico de gallo, and sour cream. The shrimp tacos are another fan favorite and they’re topped with shredded cheese, cilantro, and pico.

Be sure to ask about their rotating taco of the month to see their most recent deals.

OSO is also a little bit on the higher end of the price range for tacos in OKC and, much like Taco Nation, they’re worth it. OSO has four vegetarian tacos to choose from, which can be ordered individually or as a meal, and they include cauliflower, mushroom, sweet potato, and fried avocado options. For you meat-lovers out there, you’ll appreciate OSO’s traditional carne tacos served with salsa, onion, and cilantro or the carnitas option that are topped with salsa verde and chicharrone crumble.
