Dallas Seriously Tried Calling Itself "Taco City" And We Can't Even 

  • Facebook / The Original Donut Shop
San Antonio may have shut down Austin's claims of being superior on the taco front, but now another Texas city is trying to start another taco war.

"D Magazine" editor Tim Rogers teased the cover of the September issue, which is all about tacos. Rather than just letting readers know where to get the best tacos in Dallas, the North Texas publication went as far to call Dallas "Taco City."
The issue's content details 37 tacos that prove "Dallas is tops."

South Texans, including Mayor Ron Nirenberg, were quick to dismiss these claims.
Chef Andrew Weissman, who fronts Signature and Moshe's Golden Falafel, also let the magazine know how we feel.
Here's some of our favorite responses.
Nice try, Dallas. You can sit down now.
