If you've been wanting to add a new taco spot to your rotation of restaurants, look no further.

Texas Monthly compiled its top 25 ranking of "new-ish" taquerias in Texas — and the list does not disappoint. Here's what Taco Editor José R. Ralat said about the new rankings:

The 25 taquerias featured here offer outstanding examples of new establishments that are both honoring tradition and pushing boundaries. All either moved from a temporary to a permanent space or opened after I wrapped up the (Ultimate Texas) Tacopedia, and I visited most of them multiple times. The number of taquerias featured in each city is not necessarily a measure of the comparative quality of tacos in that location as opposed to others. Rather, it reflects the increase in high-quality newcomers, which is influenced by several factors, particularly population growth (hello, Austin).
