This taqueria, which I believe is called Taqueria, is a rather large fifth wheel - a Holiday Rambler.

I ate two lengua tacos and an adobada. My colleague had a couple carne asada tacos. We agreed that the flavor was great but the asada tacos were a bit on the chewy side. The lengua and adobada were tender and perfect. Also, Taqueria serves on reusable plates.

People have recommended that I include menus whichI think is a great idea. If you have trouble reading this, click on it. I have also been asked to include hours. Unfortunately not all of them have regular hours. I can tell you that this one is open Saturday afternoons. In cases when hours are available I will post them.

Interested in buying a taco motor home? This advertisement was taped to the side of Taqueria.

Taqueria is butted up against Savvy's, a bar in Garden City on Chinden Street.

Lil Red Cookhouse Visited

The Lil Red Cookhouse is not exactly a taco truck, and not just because it's a trailer,

but also because of the above. A Mormon friend of mine, when I told her about this taco said, "Oh, Mormon Tacos."
The Jolly Rancher is a good touch but I unfortunately threw mine away. Also unfortunate was the sudden and unavoidable need to - um - go to the bathroom. It was so sudden in fact that I can't blame this perfectly passable flour tortilla, chicken and iceberg wrap.

If you are tired of looking for a place to smoke while you eat, the Lil Red Cookhouse could be just the spot. In fact, it looked like there were free cigarette samples - there are a couple of fresh, new Marlboros in that large, ceramic astray.

Lil Red Cookhouse

In the above photo there are two concessions. The white one is Muley's Mountain Coffee and the Red one is the Lil Red Cookhouse. The Lil Red Cookhouse advertises burritos, tacos, sodas and more. My associate and I had just eaten in Idaho City about ten minutes before stumbling upon these trailers and could not give the cookhouse a try. If you try the Lil Red Cookhouse, let me know what you think. I plan to eat there next time I drive out highway 21.
I am not sure how to make a map to the location. All I know is, if heading north on 21, it will be on the left about ten minutes before you reach Idaho City. No address or cross street.

Inside a potential taco truck. I could cook in there.

This is not a review

I happened to stumble upon the Chilango's truck while I had black and white film in my camera so I am posting this to show people what blogs looked like back before digital cameras.

This truck is often parked near the Capital in Boise around lunch time. This time it was parked on 6th street between Bannock and Jefferson.
