Last updated 1 year ago

Tacos: you know them, you love them—you might have even eaten one today! For all of their popularity in the U.S., the exact origins of this Mexican food remain unknown.

The first mention of a taco in the U.S. appeared in a newspaper in 1905, while the first English-language taco recipes appeared in California cookbooks in 1914. As time passed, the fillings and toppings of tacos evolved, but still had the signature U-shaped tortilla surrounding all of the tasty ingredients.

Whether you like soft or crispy shells with beef, chicken, or fish inside, you’ll find all of the flavors you love at your Fort Worth Baja Mexican restaurant.
