I'll go just about anywhere to eat some tacos. This trail through the Land of Lincoln would make for one very delicious, taco binging road trip.

This fabulous taco trip that my taco compadres at onlyinyourstate.com put together starts in Geneva and will take you all the way downstate to Carbondale. But why wait until you get to Geneva to eat your first taco, when you can start 68 miles north of there and kick things off at the state line. My additions to this trail will connect you right up with Only In Your State's downstate trip starting in Geneva.


Taco Loco 1200 Shirland Ave. in South Beloit.

Eric's 5-star Facebook review

Real Mexican food made right in front of you with fresh ingredients. Awesome tacos, nachos, and burritos, oh and their rice is awesome as well. Friendly service and the horchata is delicious too!!

Taco Johns 8304 N. 2nd St. in Machesney Park

It's not about the tacos here. This is where you stop to get, quite possibly, the best thing to ever be dropped into hot grease. Potato Ole's. Just a quick snack on your way to the next great tacos.

Lucha Cantina 1641 N. Alpine Rd. in Rockford

The Pork Belly Tacos al Pastor

You've got a bit of a drive before your next taco stop and that's probably a good thing.

Los Comales 965 Dundee Ave. in Elgin

Skrit Steak Tacos

Now that you're only 13 miles from Geneva, you may continue your taco binge, by picking up at the beginning of Only In Your State's trail.


There are lots of reasons to take a trip through Illinois but none better than tacos all the way.
