Authentic Mexican Food

Welcome to Taco Pionero, where we serve the most mouth-watering and authentic Mexican food in town

Your First Bite Won't Be Your Last

Indulge in our extensive menu, featuring a wide array of taco meats inspired by regional Mexican specialties. From succulent carne asada to tender barbacoa, spicy al pastor to flavorful alternative options, we cater to every palate and dietary preference.


Tripa, also known as beef tripe, is the star of this culinary masterpiece. Derived from the lining of the cow's stomach, tripa offers a distinct texture and flavor that sets it apart from other cuts of meat.


Our barbacoa meat is slow-cooked to perfection, allowing the flavors to meld together and create a succulent, melt-in-your-mouth texture that will leave you craving more


The bread is dipped in a rich, vibrant red guajillo pepper sauce, which infuses it with a distinct spicy flavor and a captivating crimson hue. This sauce adds a delightful kick and a hint of smokiness that sets Pambazos apart from other sandwiches.


The foundation of a Huarache is a handmade corn masa base, pressed into an oval flat shape. This base is then cooked to achieve a delicate balance of crispy and soft texture. The result is a satisfyingly substantial yet wonderfully light vessel that perfectly holds an array of delectable toppings. You can add veggies, meat or anything you see on our menu and enjoy.


These tacos are a celebration of the iconic Mexican dish, Birria, transformed into a cheesy, melty delight that will leave you craving more. Quesabirria Tacos are the perfect fusion of flavors and textures, combining the rich, savory goodness of slow-cooked birria with the gooey decadence of melted cheese


Our Pionero begins with a vibrant assortment of tender, marinated meats such as succulent beef, juicy chicken, and savory pork. To take it to the next level, we add a generous sprinkling of melted cheese that blankets the meats and vegetables, creating a heavenly, gooey layer that unifies the ingredients and elevates the dish to new heights

Best damn tacos I've ever had the honor of consuming. When I was there, he said he had pork on his trompo, I don't really like AL pastor(pork). I actually prefer chicken and steak. However, his al pastor tacos were amazing, very unique, flavorful taste, a true artist of his craft.

Really good flavor, their style seems to be from central Mexico (that's a great thing, in my opinion), staff very courteous

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Delicious tacos de lengua! David was very hospitable and provided excellent service. They use healthier ingredients than traditional recipes indicate for the health of their customers. It’s a Christian-owned company so I encourage you to visit. You will be blessed!“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” ’”‭‭Numbers‬ ‭6‬:‭24‬-‭26‬

Food has good flavor but wish they had better salsas! The salsa verde before was spicier and now it it just very mild. The chicken lately has been dry. Also it would be great if they added more aguas frescas. The service is great all employees are very nice.

Some of the most amazing tacos I've ever had in my life! I always look for the best ones and this is likely # 1. I can't even think of the name of #2!

I absolutely love this place! Every time I visit, they are extremely friendly and the food is some of the best tacos in town. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you’re taken care of and the environment is inviting and family-friendly. I can’t recommend Taco Pionero enough - authentic Mexican food and culture!Food:Order the tacos. You can’t go wrong. I like the cachete and the birria tacos the best, but you can’t go wrong with the other choices. I’ve also tried their chicken fajitas and those were good, just not as good as the tacos.Location:Located in Arlington, TX right off Arkansas Ln, there is usually lots of parking even when they’re a bit busy. Easy to spot as you drive by.
