For National Taco Day, Yelp told us Florida's most popular tacos — and two come from Tampa

These tacos came from Acapulco Grocery in Tampa, but Yelp says that two different Tampa restaurants serve some of Florida's most popular.

Today is National Taco Day (for whatever that's worth). 

In honor of this blessed food holiday, Buzzfeed earlier today published a list of the "most popular" taco restaurant in each of the 50 U.S. states, based off of data passed on to them from the restaurant ratings app Yelp.

It just so happens that Florida's most popular taco, based on the volume of Yelp reviews and the strength of its ratings, comes from Loli's Mexican Cravings in Tampa's Town 'N Country neighborhood. The family-owned mexican eatery opened in 2014, just south of Waters Avenue, and quickly gained a following.

That got me wondering, what are the most popular tacos in Florida, specifically? I contacted Yelp, and they sent me this list of their top 10 in the state. It turns out that Tampa is home to more than one of them. Again, this list is based on an algorithm that looks at the number of Yelp reviews and how good the restaurants' star ratings are. 

TOP 10 TACOS IN FLORIDA, ACCORDING TO YELP

1. Loli's Mexican Cravings, Tampa

2. Garbo's Grill, Key West

3. Alegria Tacos, Oakland Park

4. Los Comparres, Tampa

5. Cardon y el Tirano, Miami

6. Tide Tables, Cortez

7. Stewby's Seafood Shanty, Fort Walton Beach

8. Taqueria San Julian 2, Naples

9. Fat Kahunas, Cocoa Beach

10. Capital Tacos, Land O' Lakes
