Walla Walla Restaurant Serves Best Tacos in America

Posted: Updated:

WALLA WALLA, Wash. - A Walla Walla restaurant is being recognized for having the best tacos in America.

Dora's Deli, inside the Worm Ranch Mini-Mart, was ranked number 11 out of 35 taco shops, all thanks to the restaurant's vegetarian taco.

Writers at the Daily Meal along with "taco experts" narrowed down a list of more than 150 entries before deciding on the top 35 tacos.

The, now famous, veggie taco consists of beans, rice, cheese, tomato's and avocado all served on a homemade tortilla.

"We had nothing vegetarian when the Walla Walla University students came in," Rubio Jimenez, the manager at Dora's Deli. "They were kind of upset, so we came up with the veggie menu and now we have a vegetarian taco due to the students," he continued.

Dora's Deli has two locations in Walla Walla. One is located at 1186 Wallula Avenue and the other location is at 1303 South 3rd Avenue.

The family-owned business was the only restaurant in the Northwest featured on the list.
