15 Great Tacos in Dallas & Fort Worth

Velvet Taco

Fried Paneer

Jordan Inge


Within walking distance of Revolver Taco Lounge, Taco Heads, Chile Pepper and the Fort Worth Food Truck location of Holy Frijole is the Velvet Taco, a Dallas import. The menu here is a bit of an aberration; they serve absolutely-not-traditional tacos surrounded by Mexican hits. I’ve worked my way through the menu a few times at the original spot, and my favorite at both DFW outlets (there’s a third in Chicago and one slated for Houston) is the fried paneer, a take on fried South Indian-style cottage cheese with a host of components that give the grub oscillating cool-and-peppy turns.

2700 W. 7th St., Fort Worth (817-887-9810). Open Mon-Wed 11 a.m.–11 p.m., Thur 11 a.m.–1 a.m., Fri 11 a.m.–3 a.m., Sat 9 a.m.–3 a.m., Sun 9 a.m.–11 p.m.
