Mexican fare ranks with Italian and Chinese as Americans' top-three favorite global cuisines, according to the National Restaurant Association. While tacos and enchiladas may seem commonplace in the U.S. now, that wasn’t always the case.

Americans have been influenced by the flavors of our neighbor to the south for hundreds of years. But it wasn't until refugees from southern and central Mexico brought their culinary traditions north during the Mexican Revolution that dishes like tacos found their way into our plates.

With so many great options now across Texas, Stacker turned to Tripadvisor eaters to know where to find the best Mexican food in Dallas.

Here's the ultimate Mexican food bucket list for Dallasites!
