About 50 community volunteers gathered at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office to be sworn into their neighborhood’s Youth Aid Panel (YAP) yesterday. YAP is a Juvenile Diversion Program that gives first-time juvenile criminal offenders the option of appearing before a panel of community volunteers, rather than entering the juvenile court system. These new graduates will help juveniles complete their contractual obligations to avoid the adverse effects of a criminal record.

Tacos in Philly: The Ultimate Guide

The first floor of this Garces mainstay has recently been remade as a taqueria, offering tacos in nine different varieties, from the traditional to the Americanized (like the Gringo, which is just plain old ground beef). 3945 Chestnut Street

This article has 27 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Our 2017 Best of Philly winner is the only spot in the city serving up tacos de canasta — tacos that are pre-assembled in a basket, often with a layer of onion and sprinkling of chili oil in between — and allowed to steam, then served with salsas. 1030 South 8th Street

This just-south-of-Washington spot serves up some of the Philly restaurant industry’s favorite tacos. No wonder — they’re perfect for a late-night pit stop, with service till 4 a.m. 1104 South 9th Street

Yes, the place has a dedicated following based on the authentic mole and enchiladas (generally covered in mole). But if you’re looking for tacos, this simple beef-and-cheese option is kind of like a Mexican cheesesteak. 1144 South 9th Street

Simple, classic and exactly what you want in a neighborhood taqueria. Plus, it’s a South Philly Mexican BYOB with occasional wandering mariachis, so how can you beat that? 908 Washington Avenue

There’s always a line at this truck, which posts up near 10th Street and Washington Avenue. Be sure to ask for your taco classic style for the traditional toppings of cilantro...

...unless the Americanized option with sour cream, cheese, lettuce, and tomato is more your thing). 1000 Washington Avenue

Choose from a range of taco options here, from straightforward favorites like tilapia and shrimp to chicken bacon ranch. There’s even a Tex Mex section of the taco menu, serving up fillings in flour tortillas with gringo-friendly toppings like guac, lettuce, and cheese. 1225 Fitzwater Street

La Virgen’s slate of masa-based delicacies is expansive, with sopas, huaraches, tlacoyos, and more on the menu. But the fried tacos are our favorite. And they will be yours, too. 1839 South 8th Street

Yes, they do some very authentic Mexican food (a long list of tacos included). But the cool thing about Tamalex is that it also offers Honduran food, and a couple different versions of chilaquiles on their breakfast menu. 1163 South 7th Street

Typically, we’d avoid recommending the American-style tacos rancheros section of the menu, with its sour cream and cheese toppings, but their huitlacoche taco — a prized fungus that sometimes grows on ears of corn — is too good to pass up. 951 Wolf Street

This is a two-person operation — just Raquel and Roman. But the two of them manage to supply everyone who comes with guisados del dia (stews of the day, a rarity in Philly). For a slight upcharge, they’ll make your tortillas fresh. 1629 South 7th Street

Simple and straightforward street-style tacos on a menu already full of sopes, huaraches and excellent spicy shrimp burritos. 1138 South 13th Street

This Pistola’s brings its tweaked taco recipes to South Philly. Try the catfish po’boy taco served with crispy white cabbage, pico de gallo, chipotle aioli and cilantro, for a taste of Mexico via New Orleans. 1934 East Passyunk Avenue

When you’re west of Broad and craving tacos, this is the spot for classic tacos and variations like tacos gringas and tacos del sol — flour tortillas stuffed with melted cheese over slices of skirt steak. 1801 South Chadwick Street

This place does great empanadas and big plates of nachos, but in terms of tacos, they’ve got a big list the covers everything from vegan beef to goat. 1651 East Passyunk Avenue

Each tortilla-swaddled stack of rich, shredded duck meat gets topped with a perfectly poppable (and Instagrammable) fried egg. 2013 Chestnut Street

This light-filled upstairs joint from Oyster House owner Sam Mink puts a contemporary polish on favorite Mexican dishes. To go all out, try the tasting menu, which comes with three tacos, salsas, ceviche, empanadas, and tres leches cake, all for $35. 1516 Sansom Street

Score a trio of Revolution’s uniquely flavored tacos at their brick and mortar spot near 20th and Walnut Streets or follow them on Twitter to find out where their truck is popping up across the city. 2015 Walnut Street

...a chipotle cabbage slaw — which flies in the face of tradition in a delicious way. 120 South 15th Street

Come here any day for the awesome (and filling) chorizo and potato tacos. But the best possible use of Twitter in Philly remains following @locopeztacos to find out when the dollar taco nights are on. 2401 East Norris Street

The star of this glorified Fishtown taco stand’s menu is the fried octopus taco, topped with tomato jam, chimichurri sauce, and queso fresco. But everything else on the menu is almost as good, just as messy and just as ideal for last-call taco bingeing. 1431 Frankford Avenue

This spot on North 2nd Street serves up flavorful tacos for sure (particularly the shredded chicken), but the stellar ingredient here is definitely the salsa. 1356 North 2nd Street

This northern outpost of the Cantina Los Cabalitos family has more than a hundred kinds of tequila behind the bar, Mexican poutine on the menu, a kale caesar (if that’s your jam) and a whole taqueria portion of their menu offering tacos, bowls and burritos. 931 North 2nd Street

With five kinds of breakfast tacos and a list of regular tacos as long as your arm, this is THE place to check out when you’re looking for a taco in Fishtown. And maybe the only place if you’re looking for tacos de cabeza. 1301 North 5th Street

...Even better, their fish is sustainably sourced according to Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guidelines. 1901 Callowhill Street

The tilapia in La Calaca’s fish tacos get their crisp thanks to a plantain crust and a hop in the fryer. Then they’re topped with cabbage, avocado and a lemon vinaigrette. 2321 Fairmount Avenue

...relative rarities like lengua, tripe, birria, cecina and suadera (shredded, salted and steamed beef, respectively). 2600 Federal Street, Camden
