Shocker...

So, I have a few extra pounds on me.  Not a lot, but I'm not exactly trim.

I like to tell people I'm not fat, I'm just a food connoisseur. 

With that said, I've been around.  I have had a lot of different types of Mexican food.  From major chain restaurants to holes in the wall, to the actual stuff in Mexico.

But never have I tasted anything that compared to the Mexican food I have found in Idaho.

Yes, the best mexican food I have ever had is from Idaho.

Where, you may ask?

There is a taco truck that parks in front of a redneck bowling alley.  You can get stuffed for less than $5 here, and it is BY FAR the best I have ever had.

Being a California boy, I have had Chipotle.  I loooove me some Chipotle, but this is better.  Believe it.

Plus, you get a TON of food for super cheap.  I buy this burrito for only $3, and it is big.

How big?

Big big.

As I said, I'm a big dude, so I can put down food when I need to, but I can't finish this burrito in one sitting.  It almost always turns into two meals for me.

The best part?  It doesn't have the 'Taco Bell' effect.  If you don't know what that is, this web comic sums it up nicely.

So, if you're ever in Idaho Falls, check out this taco truck.  It's an absolute gem, and worth the wait.
Please Share it! :)

Haha I like taco trucks!

Ish said...

I have found that roadside food vendors often make the tastiest (and unhealthiest) foods.

Also, lol at the 'Taco Bell' effect.

Holy Shit that's a huge burrito! We have Taco Trucks all over my small town, but I don't trust em. Being in AZ it's a little harder to trust things from across the border. Also they park by an abandoned building that smells vaguely of dead bodies...
Anyways! Sounds like a sweet deal. Especially since it doesn't do what Taco Bell does!

PvtCarlin said...

Next time I'm in Idaho Falls, I'll check it out! ^^

Autumnforest said...

Yes, but is it worth the "weight"? Hee hee. I went to chipotle once with my kid. The portions are e-normous! I admit to loving all foods, but I've never been a big fan of Mexican. It's like Jim Gaffigan said in his standup--same 5 ingredients! Now, if a super awesome cupcake place opens up there, I might make the haul up to your state, buddy! Good luck on the downsizing. I can relate. As a female, the job never ends because we never feel we get "there" (wherever there is).

Zennith said...

That's pretty crazy dude. The Taco Bell effect sounds...interesting? to say the least lol

Shutterbug said...

There is no way I'm going all the way to Idaho for Mexican! :)

Rondariel said...

Haha If I ever get to Idaho Falls, I will check out your recommendations. :)

Unholy Prophet said...

Ooow now im hungry. Here we hardly have mexican food, We don't even have a taco bell. But that sound delicious!With that i don't mean what...hapens after tacobell.

THUNDERCAT832 said...

I could never understand why "healthy" food is so damn expensive and "junk" is so cheap! I think it's a conspiracy! I'm still trying to lose a few more pounds too and it's so tempting to just give up and just be a lard ass so I can enjoy the good stuff ;)

RaZer said...

I never get the taco bell effect personally, not sure why

Con Queso said...

I have never eaten from a taco truck, but I would love to try it. Too bad I won't get your specific one. They're also fun to drive behind of on the freeway.

meandmythinkingcap said...

Mexican food whatz more catchy about it?
I call it tasteless version of Indian food.
Rice - bulky and hard version of indian rice
Tacos - hard version of roti
fajitas- tasteless version of subji
doritos - flour chips??

The Almighty Lewis said...

I've found that food coming from trucks and stands like that is always fantastic.

KUSHtunes said...

Dr. Grim said...

I don't know if i'll ever get to Idaho, but if i will, i'll check it out

lifes a carnival said...

I wish Taco Bell would grace the UK with its presence :(

Blog_Master_Flex said...

No way man!! I've had mexican food everywhere also from all over the US, Canada, France and Australia and no where compares to So-Cal

Eric P said...

I don't think the mexican food in Idaho is better than the Mexican food here in southern California! Our taco trucks are by far the best! Al pastor, birria, pollo asado - it's all delicious here!

Lost.in.Idaho said...

Flex & Eric, I've tried a lot of places in SoCal. San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside, etc. There's a good place in Huntington Beach, a taco truck (total roach coach) but the Idaho one trumps it all. To me, at least.

Tasty said...

Yeah I hear there are a lot of taco trucks in socal that are really good.. I'm surprised to hear one in Idaho takes the cake.

I was in New Mexico once and they had a little burrito stand, same deal, 3 bucks for a burrito, but it was like 1 and 1/2 pounds man. Thing was a beauty.

Joe Somebody said...

Zoe! said...

I've never eaten at one of those before.

afrodude50 said...

Lendo Khar said...

Delicious food for cheap, that-s my favorite combination.

Bobby said...

Mexican food in Idaho? I would have never expected.

And I think I'd have to try this taco truck!

Sieger said...

taco trucks are almost never terrible, keep on eating that greasy nasty mexican food that we all enjoy oh so much

Lost.in.Idaho said...

ZOE! NAO! Find one. Eat there. Foodgasm.

'Auana said...
