Taco Velos

This taco truck should appeal to the taco eating cyclist if only because of its name, Velos. Having eaten quite a few tacos of late, I opted for a torta even though the prices looked too high. The carnitas torta I ate was $5; less than I expected because there are many in the $6-8 price range. The sandwich consisted of a large, soft roll with mayo, meat, cheese, lettuce, jalapenos, tomato, and avocado. Some people make tortas with beans and I am allergic to beans. Yes. Allergic.
The best torta I've had in a long time, which is unfortunately meaningless because I have not had a torta in a long time. But even so, it was good and I will go back.

I am trying different mapping options. I think the map below is a tad big. Maybe next time I will chose the link button option so you'll only see the map if when you want it.

The photo above is close to what you should see when you arrive but now there is a taco truck parked there. Click to see the map.

Great blog! I plan to check 'em all out!

Might I make a suggestion: If you haven't tried Lorena's, adjacent to the car wash on Fairview and curtis, I recommend it post-haste. Sure, it's not technically a taco truck - they chose to set up shop in what looks like a small strorage shed - but the only thing that's missing is a set of bald tires.

While tacos may be the featured item, the big seller is the Gordita. I prefer one of each, actually.

Oh, and by the way - there are no surly servers here. In fact, you will not find a sweeter woman that Lorena.

oops - the post above was mean as a general comment, not specific to velo. I'm sure velo is great, and will find out soon!

I took it as such, Hootch. Thanks for the comments. I visited Lorena's before I come up with the idea for the blog. I plan to go back.
