Last week, we asked our readers to vote for their favorite taco spot in the neighborhood. This week, we’re crowning the winner.

The winner of Best of Bushwick’s tacos goes to… La Lupe!

Since there are so many amazing taco vendors in the neighborhood, we honestly had no idea how this particular poll would turn out. But La Lupe, located at 9 Jefferson St., a few minutes from the Myrtle-Broadway JMZ stop, ran away with the taco title with over 40 percent of the vote.

La Lupe’s owner Karla Munoz is more than excited to hold the title.

“The most important thing about running this beautiful business are my employees and the fact that my family are a huge part of the business operations. La Lupe is my mother’s name and I am trying to make her proud and represent her the best I can,” Karla said. “[I have] been part of the Bushwick community for three years now; it’s been so enjoyable. We have met great people and made friends … Life is so much better with tacos, mezcal and tequila.” 

Though La Lupe’s taco title is cause for celebration, the Mexican food hotspot has another wildly under-advertised feature that would win awards: a godly brunch menu.

The taco joint serves up delicious margaritas, burritos, and also brunch every weekend until 3 p.m.  

Breakfast bowls, huevos rancheros, and breakfast burritos are just a few of La Lupe’s  brunch-only menu options that can satisfy your hungover tastebuds. 

So, congratulations La Lupe! May you live long, prosper, and keep serving Bushwick those amazing Best of Bushwick-certified tacos.
