Thanks to a tip from eagle-eyed commenter Rod Holaday, we’ve had the opportunity to check out Tacos Nayarit.
This truck is something of a curiosity in almost every sense. Hilliard? Now that’s a new one on us. Hours? Only worth asking the question if it happens to be a Saturday or a Sunday. Their offering? Hmmm… when we were there, it seemed as though half of the menu was unavailable for purchase.
However, what was available was seriously good. The chorizo tacos were quite possibly the best we’ve ever had, and the lengua was up there as well. Portions were generous, the salsa was tasty, and we *know* that whoever ordered the burrito after us (we watched them cook up a massive mound of sizzling asada for it) must have been very happy.
The staff at Tacos Nayarit (the name refers to the owner’s origins in the state of Nayarit in Mexico) is friendly enough, though communication may be somewhat limited with non-spanish speaking customers. Having only been open for a month’s worth of weekends, they’re obviously still working through some of the kinks.
Nonetheless, there’s plenty of taco truckin’ joy to be found here. We’ll be back for sure.
