San Diego Reader Continues Search For City's Best Taco At 2nd Annual Tacotopia On May 14 | Save On Passes & Enter To Win VIP Tickets

February 20, 2016

The San Diego Reader is once again on the search to find the best taco in San Diego, and at the 2nd annual Reader Tacotopia at Golden Hill Park on Saturday, May 14, over 40 of the top eateries in America's Finest City will compete for cash prizes and bragging rights. The participants for this event were carefully curated by food writers at Reader, and hey, we at SanDiegoVille even gave our input. The best part about Tacotopia is that attendees pick the champion. After trying signature tacos from as many restaurants as possible, each attendee will place their token in a voting box on the table of their favorite vendor. The vendor who receives the most tokens wins the title of "Best Taco in San Diego" and $1,000! We're giving away 2 VIP tickets to this already-almost-sold-out event and also offering promo code SDVILLE for $5 savings on any ticket type. Read on for all the details and be sure to enter.
