why no taco trucks in SLO?

toodie jane | Apr 25, 2006 12:16 PM

Yesterday I found myself hungry and in SLO at lunch time. I was hungry for a good, fast, cheap taco. When I started casting about in my mind, I realized that there are NO TACO TRUCKS anywhere is SLO! (I don't have time or $ for a sit-down lunch and most of the taquerias are apalling.)

How come? Anybody know? There are canteen trucks that move around from business to business, but no stationary trucks. Does the city forbid them? I think they'd be great, especially in the industrial parks south of downtown, where they wouldn't be competing with ANYbody. Does the restaurant industry in SLO have enough muscle to prevent them? They're all over in Santa Maria, though the quality is pretty average..

I recently tried the taqueria on Santa Rosa by 101 and found it good, but access is dicey. So much traffic! Would really like a taco truck or two to choose from.

Any answers or theories?

sign me 'hungry for a great lengua taco in slo in 5 minutes' tj.
