This project was started in January 2009 to try and locate, sample and document the taco truck culture of Columbus Ohio. Here is an account of our taco truckin’ adventures.
Taco Truck Tidbits
In 2000, the Columbus Metropolitan area Latino population was 17,471 – 2.5% of our citizens. In 2005, it was 3.3%. Estimates (2009) of the local Latino population suggest 6% or more of the population is Latino. Local Latino immigrants come from several regions in Mexico as well as El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and the rest of Central America.
Taco Trucks are found in any city that has a significant Latino population. In Los Angeles, Houston as well as other locales, these mobile kitchens are a valued and celebrated part of local culture that adds spice to the people and palates of the community. Viva la Vida Taco!
We need your help to keep our information up to date. If you find a Taco Truck we do not have listed or if truck moves, changes a phone number, etc., please let us know so we can update our posts to share with everyone. Thanks.
And to help you keep track of what the Taco Truckers are up to – by popular demand – Taco Trucks on Facebook
