There’s not a taco truck on every corner in Austin, but …

People are going to start seeing “taco trucks (on) every corner” if immigration from Mexico continues at its current rate,  Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez said on MSNBC on Thursday. Would you guess that people on Twitter might have taken that comment and run with it?

The statement sparked the #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner hashtag, and most of the related tweets posit that a dispensary of tortilla-based delight at every metropolitan juncture would not be the worst thing in the world.

There isn’t a taco truck on every corner in Austin, but our market saturation is as close to that reality as you’re likely to get in America. No matter what your take on the political side of this discussion, it is a non-partisan truth that tacos are one of the finest foods ever invented.

Here are some taco recommendations from our entertainment staff:

  • Take a taco tour of Austin: Taco trailers on the tour include Capital Taco, La Fantabulous, La Flor, Mellizoz Tacos, Pueblo Viejo and Tacos Michoacan.
  • Taco Tuesday: They’re not all taco trucks, but do you care?
  • Veracruz All-Natural: Matthew Odam says they’re the best migas taco in town.
