Here's what they had to say:

Agave Jalisco and Wapo Taco, Far West Side: KA S. prefers these taco shops closest and second closest to home.

Tacos N Salsa, North Side on Wurzbach: Erika P. says this spot has the best non-greasy barbacoa taco, and pairs it with a Big Red of course.

Con Huevos, Dignowity Hill: Erika P. will drive farther away for the Lupe taco here, a homemade spinach and cactus corn tortilla with vegetables, black beans, cilantro and queso fresco.

Taqueria DataPoint, multiple locations: Reader Jeff T. is willing to drive a whopping 18 miles from home for any of their street tacos, but especially the al pastor and carnitas.

Ajuúa!, Northwest Side: Jeff T. will also drive 21 miles from home for this favorite spot to get the cheese enchiladas with chipotle cream sauce, or more al pastor tacos.
