One of my favorite websites for checking out Illinois things had an excellent idea.

Only In YourState featured the perfect "taco trail" in Illinois, and somehow, someway they managed to forget to stop in Rockford.

A taco trip through the Land of Lincoln without one break in the Forest City? That's a non-starter right there.

So I decided to take matters into my own hands, and create my very own "taco trail" for Rockford.

Think about it, the weather is (supposed to be) getting nice, and some of these great taco joints in Rockford have outdoor seating, some are even on wheels.

So what better way than to spend a spring Saturday in Rockford cruising the streets on a journey to take down the best tacos in town?

Since I wanted to make it a fair list, I consulted Yelp. Searching for "best tacos" I looked at the top 7 restaurants in Rockford according to the popular review site and started a route.

I decided to start on the west side of Rockford and head east.
