Is South Bay birria taqueria the No. 1 taco shop in America? Yelp reviewers say yes
They much be doing something right, and something delicious!

For the past 17 years, Ed Fernandez Restaurant Birrieria in the South Bay border community of Nestor has been one the area’s best-kept secrets. Not anymore. Two weeks ago, named Fernandez restaurant No. 1 on its 2022 list of the 100 best taco spots in America. The rankings were based on both the total volume of reviews and the percentage of high-star reviews that included the word “taco” on the crowd-sourced ratings website. Located just off Interstate 5 a couple exits north of the U.S.-Mexico border, Fernandez has collected nearly 700 customer reviews, and the vast majority of reviewers gave the restaurant five out of five stars.
