They have at least 8 taco trucks lined up every night. If you've never had street tacos this is an amazing place to start. My personal favorites are Ixtapa and Mexcali but you can make a stop at each truck and see the array of taco choices for yourself. Different items from different trucks
Turns out one of the first taco trucks is thought to have started in New York in 1966, when two New York housewives operated an early version of the taco truck. Although the truck did not have a full kitchen, it was available for catering.
