Tacos have been an important part of the food truck menu since the ‘60s when the early loncheras fed the residents of Mexican-American neighborhoods on LA’s Eastside. It’s hard to say “no thanks” to even a basic taco if it’s made from fresh, quality ingredients. But how can you find the best taco when you’re meandering through the food truck court?
Study the menus. Check out each gourmet food trucks and review the offerings. No matter their specialty, many food trucks offer some version of a taco. If you like the faithful standby, go with the truck that doesn’t doll up its tacos. If you prefer something unique, patronize the trucks that combine different ingredients and spices.
Taste-test several products. Fortunately, tacos are a relatively inexpensive menu item, so it’s not costly to sample a single taco at several different food trucks. Try something you would normally choose, and then save room to go back for a second helping of your favorite. Better yet, bring a friend, split each taco and taste a dozen.
Ask other diner’s opinions. Stop by the taco truck with a long line of customers and a reputation for freshness, quality and service. One of those is Hang 10 Tacos, a giant blue taco truck that travels the streets of Orange County and caters all types of events and celebrations.
