Sacramento taco trucks

I would be most grateful if any Chowhounds familiar with the Sacramento area could list any/all taco trucks that are regularly parked in a particular location - I'm working on a map of all the (mostly) stationary trucks in the region, including menus and reviews, and will be beginning my research this evening. Bonus points if you can recommend specialties, and double bonus points if they are open in the evening.

The only trucks I am certain are open at night and that are quite good is the one on El Camino just off the freeway, and two on Northgate. I think there might be one on Stockton near SF Market, too, but not sure about that.

  1. Those 2 trucks on Northgate are soooooh great to hit late at night. I think I'll stop by tonight.

    A list of others is a fine idea! 'Can't wait!

      "late at night"? I was told that since 2002, the city of Sacramento won't let any of them operate after 8 pm. Anyone know for sure?

        And none of these is open at night. The one at Denios only on the weekend.

    2. There is one in Wilton. On Elk Grove Blvd behind the feed store. My favorite. La Fuenga. I am a taco guy and they are great.

      There is also a good one at Denio's Roseville auction in the parking lot across from the livestock auction.

      And another on South watt at Belvedere (?), by the AM/PM.

      1. Hi Hewn,

        There was one at the Sunday Farmers Market...I don't know if it's there every Sunday. You might check at the local forums. Good luck..I'd like to see this list as well!

        1. Hi Hewn -- there is usually a truck parked in the Thrift Town parking lot, at least during the day, on El Camino, in the Del Paso Heights area. Also, as bennyboy1 mentioned, there is usually at least 1 or 2 trucks down along S. Watt between Folsom and Florin Rds., esp. during lunchtime. I've never tried a truck, so a list would be nice. I am a huge taco fan!

            Wow, hewn. I feel kinda silly now, but I do remember taking my mother, visiting from Arizona, and my SO to the trucks on Northgate after having an unhappy dinner at a place on J St. It was dark, so I am pretty sure it was after 8PM. But, it was a while ago. I have been to the Northgate trucks several times in the past years, but I acknowledge it has been during the day.

            Again, cannot wait to see your list!

          2. there is one in south sac at 47th and stockton. it's only open during the day and is not consistently there, but it's good.
