I’m a taco super fan, and Columbus has a ton of incredible taco spots. Food trucks are amazing, but it’s chilly, so this time I’m zeroing in on sit-down restaurants. My top taco types? Birria, al pastor, and anything smothered in house-made queso.
Quesabirria is slow-cooked beef, oozing with melted cheese, folded in a tortilla, and served with a dip-worthy consommé. Did you know that al pastor was a culinary gift from Lebanese immigrants to Mexico, transforming lamb shawarma into a taco sensation? The more you know, the better you can feast.

Al pastor tacos at Taqueria El Fogoncito are a flavor explosion, stepped up a notch with pickled onion and habanero on the side. The pork is tender and juicy and comes with a generous serving of pineapple. Every bite is incredibly fresh and delicious, making these tacos a major feast.
