The truck is a new venture for Carlos the friendly and voluble owner.
For the time being, Carlos is providing Victorian Village with a menu of taco truck standards – tacos, burritos, tortas, and the like – as well as a few American options such as hot dogs and bratwurst.
We’ve not yet had the opportunity to taste Junior’s Taco’s non-taco wares, so our experience is limited to a plate of tacos with four different meats. We enjoyed the carne asada and the chorizo tacos. Chicken – eh, not so much. It’s hard to judge much of anything from a single sampling, but our first overall impression was: ‘somewhere mid-pack’.
That may well change. Carlos’s operation is all of a month old, and he was at pains to emphasize how he’s still working the bugs out. He also spoke of ambitious plans, so we’ll be keeping track of him and keeping you up-to-date on his location and progress. Carlos is keen to cater to his customers and is more accommodating than most taco trucks of special orders. He has been experimenting with some vegetarian dishes and we hear that the vegetarian fajita burrito is worth trying.
We went back to Junior’s on July 7th enticed by the promise of tamales. Carlos did not disappoint and there were tamales all-round. They were a big hit with our group and we hope that they will soon be a regular menu item. At $1.25 each you can afford to eat a few, which is just what you will want to do.
