Best in Chow: North America's Top Tacos

It's time for host Cris Nannarone to talk tacos, and he's taking his taste-testing competition all over the United States and Canada to discover the Best in Chow.

BBQ Pork Tacos

Squeal Bar-B-Q gives its pulled pork a kick with horseradish coleslaw and homemade chipotle sauce.

Guisados' Chicken Mole

At Guisados Tacos in Los Angeles, they braise all their meat and make the tortillas by hand.

Conchinita Pibil

These slow-roasted pork tacos from Barrio Cafe in Phoenix, Ariz., are worth a trip out west.

Tacos al Pastor

In Vancouver, Mexican restaurant Sal y Limon serves up Tacos al Pastor, a traditional marinated pork taco topped with pineapple.

Taco de Lengua 

Rebozos Mexican Restaurant, located in Toronto, serves a taco that might just leave you tongue-tied (because it's made with beef tongue).

Ancho-Braised Short Rib Taco

At Playa Cabana's in Toronto, beef short ribs are braised in ancho chiles, then wrapped in fresh corn tortillas and griddled to a golden crispiness.

Tacos Zarandeados

Milagos Cantina in Toronto fills its special tacos with octopus, snapper, achiote (a Mexican spice paste) and pineapple-habanero salsa.

Quesa Taco

These award-winning tacos are filled with melted Oaxaca cheese and grilled shrimp cooked in Leticia's Cocina's famous Abuelo Sauce, then topped with a chipotle cream sauce. Leticia's Cocina in Las Vegas is worth betting on.

Fish Tacos

Diego's, located on the Strip in Las Vegas, makes a fish taco that's light but full of flavor.

Carnitas

At Tacos and Tequila in Las Vegas, they top pork carnitas with pickled onion for a satisfying tang.
