Recently, I sampled the food truck fare over at Tex’s Taco who park over in midtown on Thursdays around lunchtime (near the Shell gas station off Peachtree Street and the Buford Highway split).
I purchased the chicken fresca and carne asada (steak) tacos made with flour tortillas and heavily dressed with lettuce, cheese, pico de gallo (served on the chicken) and guacamole (served on the steak).
To be frank, I am biased towards simpler tacos that come on small corn tortillas with a smattering of diced onions and cilantro. The carne asada was overwhelmingly salty, and the gloppy chicken fresca didn’t leave a lasting impression.
The Tex-Mex taco truck also offers a few other tacos, quesadillas and lime-flavored fries that I have yet to try.
Have you tried Tex’s Taco? What do you think?
