About Los Taco Trucks

This is a map/blog of the fixed-location taco trucks in the Seattle area. Some things to know about taco trucks and the site in general:

There are almost uniformly fixed location taco trucks due to health department codes. The Seattle health department mandates that a "mobile food vendor" pay $200 per food-serving location, so genuinely mobile trucks by and large do not exist.

I include health department information on the site not to show how bad places are, but to show how harmless they are. Please see other restaurants if you think these health infractions look bad.

(more to come...)

You guys rule! I thought I was fairly unique in my Taco Truck obsession. Unfortunately, I no longer live in Seattle but I have fond memories of a taco truck that used to be on SE 16th just east of 148th Ave SE in Bellevue. I think it doesn't go there any more, that was in the late '90s.

The Tri-Cities area also has lotsa good taco trucks. Keep an eye peeled if you are ever over there. In the summertime there's often a good one right by the westbound I-82 on ramp in Benton City.

There's 2 taco wagons that I know of near that location in Bellevue:

-Taqueria Guadalajara (2421 148th Ave)
-dont know name, (2355 Bel Red Rd)

Guadalajara is delicious.

How about taco trucks in Burien? Where are they?

I can't be driving around all day looking, and I rely on this website for any and all taco truck-related information.

There's some more in the Rainier Valley, too... Graham & MLK (you got the one on Graham & Rainier) and on Rainier in Columbia City between the library and Bank of America. I ate at the one in Columbia City but was grumpy and starving at the time so wasn't really thinking about remembering the food. But I did see a guy get robbed (I think) during that meal, so the entertainment factor was good.

(Not that one should feel unsafe there, although the thought did cross my mind that the only reason I survived my Bank of America experience was the stern looks I gave passersby and the confident swagger with which I approached the ATM.)

Anonymous, I'm not sure. I'd like to know though - I think a taco truck in downtown would be a great investment.

I love the interactive map! it's awesome. what's is the best way to submit a new taco truck location to you? Do you need lat/long coordinates? there are a couple on highway 99 near Seatac.

Mario, just let me know and I'll add you to Los Taco Trucks as a guest author. You can review the posts and I'll put them on the map. I have a dozen or so that still need to be added.
