The loyalty to taco joints here on Long Island is intense. Discussing which is the best isn’t always a great conversation starter in mixed company.

But we want to do just that: talk about it.

Below, we list several well-known Tex-Mex hangouts from within the Greater Long Island websites’ coverage areas (and beyond, for places with multiple locations).

Which place do you know puts together the best tacos or burritos? Pick only one!

Feel free to slam us in comments if we missed your personal favorite.

Note: We don’t include finer Mexican restaurants like Verde Kitchen & Cocktails or Besito.
