The Taco Trucks of Winter

The owner of Jalisco dice esta abierta!

(March 28th: Quick update, Spring is back and so are Don Pedro’s, Super Torta II, and expanded hours for all trucks – go forth and consume!)

Wintertime is not Prime Time for the Taco Truck Trade. However, many stay open for the season. We found this out the hard way last February when we first started our taco truck tracking. Some of the trucks set up tents to shield customers from some of the elements. Taco slingers that keep on trucking in the cold can feel like the Maytag repairman so do drop by to see them from time to time. A warm taco can bring back thoughts of summertime taco tours and memories of the sun. There are special wintertime treats like Atole – which is a wonderful, warm, custardesque drink that appears in the cold months. Below is a list of trucks that we have confirmed as open – all subject to change.

When possible call ahead and always have a back up truck in mind for your visit. We will update changes and could use your help with that task. There may be some additions. As a general rule, if it is over 32 degrees and daylight – your chances are good. Gracias.
