So, where is Iowa's best place for tacos?

Love Food Website, lists it as La Tienda in Clarion, which is located around 45 minutes northeast of the town of Fort Dodge.

What makes these small-town tacos so darn good? Here's what Love Food had to say:

The unassuming La Tienda is where you'll find some of the best carnitas tacos in the state. Don’t expect it to be fancy, just warm, flaky tortillas encasing perfectly seasoned pork – the meat alone has so much flavour you barely need the coriander and onion. This is Iowa’s best-kept secret.

As for neighboring states, the top spot in Minnesota went to Lamb Barbacoa in Minneapolis, Que Pasa Cantina in Iowa, and Voodoo Taco in Omaha, Nebraska.
