Just as with pizza, tacos are now part of the Guatemalan gastronomy. You can find tacos in every town fair, at parks and plazas, on the side of the roads, within malls, etc. However tacos in Guatemala are nothing like the Mexican tacos one finds in Mexico or the United States. Somehow, the Guatemalan taco is different, it’s hard to explain, but it does not taste like a Mexican taco, even though that’s supposedly what their selling you. The picture above is what the typical beef taco stands looks like.
