Unity Taqueria

About Us

Welcome to Unity Taqueria, an authentic Tex-Mex taqueria in Philadelphia.

Unity Taqueria (our friends call us Unity Taco) exists for two reasons - great food and connected community. We believe that fresh ingredients, investing in people, and celebration of diversity are the keys to a full stomach and a full heart.

We're a designated recovery-friendly workplace in Pennsylvania, too! We're dedicated to promoting positive, recovery-informed policies, hiring practices, and support for our staff that are in or seeking recovery from substance use and mental health concerns. We're all in this together and we're putting our resources where our mouth is!

Our Food

Authentic Tex-Mex flavors with a focus on uplifting our community together. Three things we never skimp on - Fresh Ingredients. Amazing Queso. Inspired People.


Handheld flavor rockets that will take you into the 4th Dimension for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.


Two sizes to choose from without compromising the full flavor of the best burrito you've ever tasted.


Keep it simple with nachos that keep their crunch while packing in the richness of fresh ingredients.
