Loncheria La Fuente, Grant Line Rd, Elk Grove

Great tacos to be had here. I took Grant Line from Elk Grove as a shortcut across 50 to get to 80 from 5. (stopping in Fair Oaks to see my neice)

The truck is parked at the empty lot across from the Shelton Feed & Supply on Grant Line Rd, between Wilton and Mooney, about 4 miles east of 99. Every Mon-Sat, year round, according to the owner. From about 10:30 a.m. to about 3 p.m. in winter, longer in summer.

I had both the lengua and the buche. Grilled tortillas, hot and succulent meats with intense flavors. Served con todos: grilled serrano, onions & cilantro garnish, and a medium hot green sauce. $4.50 for two tacos and a bottle of fizzy apple cider.

Based on the excellent tacos, I'd try anything else here without fear of being dissappointed.

side note: Owners are great fans of the soccer team Chivos. Van is decorated as such.
