The Martinez family is planning a new sign for the side of their truck, but they are still debating whether it should say Mexican, Tex-Mex, or both. The family hails from Texas and wife Lucila cooked Tex-Mex food there for 15 years before they moved to Ohio.
They previously operated in Mount Sterling, Ohio, and the move to Columbus is a step towards their ultimate goal of opening their own restaurant. there first location was the Sunoco gas station on West Broad street at the end of April 2010. In August 2010 they moved to the Weber Road location.
Every day Los Texanos has a different $5 lunch special ranging from mole to enchiladas to today’s option (above) of a chicken flauta, a tostada and a corn taco served with rice and beans. It’s a great deal.
The tacos were solid – pictured above are the two beef options – asada (chopped steak) and molida (ground beef). The green salsa was fresh and vibrant but packed a punch. Always a good idea to test the heat first!
Lucilia makes her own tortilla chips for the South West nachos. She apologized because her microwave was broken – normally the cheese would be melted.
Lucila (pictured below) also makes her own flour tortillas, which is rare, even in Mexican restaurants.
The truck does not serve any drinks, but drinks are available in the gas station next door.
