San Antonians all have their favorite taco shops — and it's usually the one closest to them.

Yes, but: Our Axios colleagues in San Diego recently tested the theory that residents there prefer the second-closest taco shop to them.

Tell us: Is that ridiculous, or is there some truth to wanting to travel slightly farther for a good taco?

💭 Megan's thought bubble: This city has some clear favorites that are listed time and time again in all the "best of" and national lists: Garcia's Mexican Food, Maria's Cafe, Original Donut Shop and Con Huevos.

  • I'll travel a little more to hit up these spots anytime.

💌 Hit reply to this email (or find us at [email protected]) and tell us about your favorite taqueria.

  • Bonus points if you tell us whether it's the closest to you, second-closest or even farther away.
  • We'd also love to hear your go-to order.

What's next: We'll compile a list of all your favorites.
