Best Of 2014: Taqueria

Two different salsas, two different locations, two different owners, one incredible experience. Whether you're craving a giant stuffed burrito or a simple taco, Monica's Taco Shop continues to answer the call — it's won this category every year since 2006. Start your day with a breakfast burrito, and you'll be smiling till lunchtime. — Jennifer Corona

Bites 2012

So there I am, driving to Denver with a fresh Monica's breakfast burrito steaming in my hand, burning my mouth each time I bite, yet I can't stop or wait for it to cool. I'm inexplicably compelled to suffer gloriously onward. Is it the chorizo? The salsa verde? Who cares. It is epic.
