Who doesn’t love a little street food and cheap tacos? You probably spotted a food truck somewhere along your way but the ones we’re about to mention have the best tacos in town! We’re hopping around the United States to tell you about some of the best food trucks where you can find the tacos you’ve always dreamt of. From tacos de pescado to lengua and tostadas, they have them all.
Oh, did we forget to mention? National Taco Day is October 4th! Thankfully, you can grab a bite at any of these trucks year round.
Mariscos Jalisco LA — Los Angeles
Check out this old-school food truck that’s been in business since 2002, cooking up some of the best tacos on wheels. The menu includes cold seafood dishes, shrimp tacos, cocktails, and more! The shrimp tacos are said to be “the best” for their tasty hard shell, fried shrimp, and the avocado and salsa topping. Mariscos Jalisco food truck has been recognized a number of times by foodies, bloggers, and writers from across the U.S. If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area, stop by one of the two locations in town for a bite on the street!
Adobada at Taqueria La Fondita #2 — Seattle
It’s the guilty pleasure of Seattle street foodies. The name insists that it’s #2 but those who’ve tried these tacos will rave that it’s (for sure) #1. The popular truck, Taqueria La Fondita, located in White Center has been around for over a decade serving the local taco loving community. You should stop by and enjoy some grub, they even provide seating! There are lots of choices on the menu but the most popular are the 3 taco combo — you get to choose 3 different types of tacos!
Los Dos Hermanos — Denver, CO
Looking for something to eat on the weekend in the metro area of Denver? Head over to Los Dos Hermanos for a delicious taco from this food truck. It’s only open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., so be sure to arrive for an early lunch. Los Dos Hermanos offers two kinds of tacos: tacos al vapor and lengua. Tacos al vapor is their specialty; it’s steamed and shredded beef with a corn tortilla and topped with salsa, onion, and cilantro. Lengua, meaning tongue, is the other option offered, it’s not the most popular, however, Los Dos Hermanos makes both tacos to be delish!
El Rey del Taco — Astoria, Queens, NY
It’s the perfect stop when coming home from a night out in NYC. Located on Ditmars Ave in Astoria, Queens is El Rey del Taco. This food truck’s open super late and can be the solution to your next midnight craving! The menu has a bunch of options such as burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and even gyros and prices range from only $2-$6. We recommend you try the tacos — they’re only $2 with your choice of meat.
Mariscos German — San Diego, CA
Kick back while in San Diego and order some tacos! It’s a must try truck with tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and tostadas. Mariscos German is a favorite from almost all who’ve tried it. The portions are large and the fish is always fresh. We suggest you order the tacos, but if you’re not in the mood for that, then you must try tostadas mixtas! It’s similar to an open face large taco and it’ll certainly satisfy your hunger.
Veracruz All Natural — Austin, TX
Have you tried it? If so, we’re sure you loved it and if you haven’t, you may have seen Veracruz All Natural covered by Rachael Ray, Rolling Stone, and Austin Eater. Oh, and their migas taco was named one of the five best tacos in America! The menu has tasty tacos for breakfast and lunch/dinner so you should go on an empty stomach to enjoy them all! This taco joint has five locations in Austin and one in Round Rock, Texas. The truck was in such high demand for its tacos that it went off wheels and opened two storefronts. Yes, the trucks are still in business and the tacos just keep getting better!
