Our epic Battle Royale of Tacos started way way back about two weeks ago with the Salsa Sixteen. From there, we narrowed it down to the Cliente Eight, then the Fiesta Four, and finally the Taco Twosday Championship Round. And our winner is...

MI JALAPEÑO!

They defeated Los Molcajetes in the Salsa Sixteen, took down Tacos Ink in the Caliente Eight, overcame Lonchera Arandas in the Fiesta Four, then topped Hooey's in a narrow victory to become your favorite taco in the area. Mi Jalapeño takes the Golden Taco, while Hooey's wins the Silver Taco award. We had a run-off vote for the Bronze Taco between the other two taco joints who hit the Fiesta Four, and it was a runaway for El Rancherito.

When Sam, Ben and I presented Francisco at Mi Jalapeño with the Golden Taco certificate, we also sampled their tacos. Ben got the shrimp, Sam got the chicken, I got the fish. And it was an across the board thumbs up on the tacos. Now we just have to head to the rest of the competitors we hadn't been to. Because tacos.
