Food trucks are in and there are two really good reasons; first, they generally serve less expensive food compared to a brick and mortar store, and second the food can be quite good. TacoMania is one of the many fine examples of both reasonably priced and good food.
I had two tacos and a diet coke for $4.80 before tax. Taco #1 was an Al Pastore on two 3 inch corn tortillas smothered in onions and cilantro (which I requested). Taco #2 was carnitas and also smothered in stuff. There is a table with salsa, sautéed onions and peppers, radish and lime slices and hot sauces. The tacos both proved to meet my standard for authentic Mexican.
The décor is more like Tijuana, a little clumsy with bits-and-pieces from garage sales and the flea markets; but, that is just fine. It blends in nicely with the
concept and bright colors of the truck and in addition provides some shade, a
flat screen TV and tables/chairs. Not to mention they have kept the cost down and provide a good value meal.
Do yourself a favor and try something new once in awhile. It is a true adventure to discover fun places to eat as wells the thrill of taking a little risk.
TacoMania is located between Valley Fair Shopping Center and The Falafel Drive-In on the same side of the street.
