4 Tacos - 5 Bucks


You've all seen them but, have you tried them? I am talking about the taco trucks that are on the corner at just about every major intersection. It's good stuff. I stopped at the one on the corner of Carrollton and Claiborne. Four corn tortilla beef tacos with homemade pico de gallo, cilantro and squeeze of lime for $5 USD. Not bad for an old delivery van. Just be careful with the salsa. It's way hot!! It is in a squeeze bottle and you add your own.

Anybody tried any other ones?

I've only tried the XX one which seems to compete with this one for the prime Walfuckingreens parking lot. I had the pork tacos, they were splendiferous.

The one at the corner of Elysian Fields and Claiborne is pretty tasty. They even have actual tables to sit at (if you don't mind flies), and TWO different kinds of salsa, red and green!

taco trucks, our new culinary rage. Someone needs to photograph and rate them [carry pepto bismal]

Are you sure that was beef? Did you see any stray cats, dogs or nutria rats?

Just like El Paso. Park one underneath the new nifty Texas street lights in the CBD and you could be living in Anytown, Texas. Nice!

Tom Fitzmorris claims they are good eatin' too. Problem is, they keep relocating to avoid the board of health. Happy digesting!

These are the types of businesses we need. It is time we embrace more diversity in the form of mom and pop business; while we also preserve or own unique character and heritage. And who the hell is repsonsible for letting all those t-shirt shops in the french qaurter? I can't stand those places! How can we expand the farmers and art and crafts markets instead? If you get a chance, check out the related discussions developing here as well.

Thanks you so much,

Damn it. I got lost there when I was in NO for the Main Street conference in early June. I saw the truck, but didn't stop. I regret it now, especially if the sauces are really hot.
