Default So does any one else here like to hit the Taco Truck?

They usually have Beef lingua, chorzio and spiced up chicken tacos among other cool stuff.

Where TF are taco trucks? Never heard of them. Do you mean parked at carnivals, or driving through neighborhoods like ice cream trucks used to do in the 1950s?

In Houston they are everywhere.

I'm sure they are held to the strictest of health standards.

No, I don't go to them.

I have had a burger from one food truck, and bbq from another.
Not sure why anyone would opt for a taco when you can have either above, as both times was at an event with 10+ trucks to chose from.

I like tacos, but I prefer BEEF!!

Just had a good truck at a local community festival; sold beef, chicken or pork tacos. They posted a sign stating "don't ask for lettuce, tomatoes or cheese; our tacos are autentico". They were quite good (as was their street corn).

dude, food trucks are the current thang and prevalent In D-Troit. The city supposedly regulates them closely and they are safe to eat.

They park them in primarily Southwest Detroit neighborhoods and slang their food.

And I occasionally roll up to get with it.

That brought back a memory from the 70s. I was in Mexico buying some tacos with a friend from an old man cooking off a VW hubcap. My friend was inquiring what kind of meat it was just as a three legged dog came running by.

They usually set up close to a business during lunch. Used to see them before Covid, but I haven't seen them since. Occasionally at one of the local breweries, but they rotate between different vendors, so you never know what roach coach will be there.

There seems to be a Mexican food truck outside most pot shops.

I don't patronize either one.
