Tucked away inside the Arbor Food Park on East 12th Street, you might easily miss Cuantos Tacos’ tiny yellow truck. Stop your car and turn back around – responsibly of course, use your blinker – because the Mexico City-style street tacos and quesadillas are tremendous. It’s a tight menu of classics like suadero, beef cheeks, carnitas, and the absolutely unskippable champiñones, all made with corn tortillas driven in from San Antonio. There are plenty of picnic tables in the shady and spacious trailer park.
