Manch, NH: taco truck @ Lake and Union

Has anyone eaten from this truck? I'm curious.

  1. i passed that the other day and wondered myself - lots of customers - good sign

    1. We passed it on the way to a dinner party a few weeks back - I was sooooo tempted to stop and spoil my appetite.. :) Thanks for the reminder, I'll try to get back there the next time we're in the neighborhood!

      1. I've stopped here twice now and will go back whenever I'm in town. I've only had tacos so far -- chicken and pork with everything. I think they are delicious. I am no Mexican food expert, but I am a knowledgeable consumer of good food. There is a woman preparing/filling the soft tacos (very little English I think) and a bi-lingual expeditor. The tacos are $2 each and if I hadn't driven away before eating I would have returned for more.

        First post, hope I covered the basics. The taste to cost ratio is as good as it gets.

        1. Fantastic, stopped by today. we had two tacos (chix and beef) and a wonderful burrito (pork). People were very friendly, although no english - we had help from a hispanic woman that was finishing her taco when we arrived. We both commented on the great article in Hippo. I'm anxious to try more on the menu - I'll clip the article (think the menu was in it - in english). Everything is made fresh to order. Several people came up and ordered things like a dozen tacos, to go!! Our real estate agent is going to love this new find (if he hasn't yet), he's been enjoying El Mexicano Jr. since we told him about that place. Great value, awesome food, very nice people - what more can you ask for.

            The taco truck is exciting for the Manchester food scene

          2. Had lunch there yesterday -- two carnitas tacos. Very very good and worth the price. The tacos were double-wrapped in hot, soft corn tortillas, and I thought that there was just a little too much corn for the filling, but I'd still eat there whenever -- just take the outer tortilla off.

            I was disappointed that there wasn't a line at 12:15 when I showed up.

            Also, they are bringing in Coca-Cola from Mexico, in glass bottles, with cane sugar instead of HCFS! That alone makes me excited to go back.

              How would you get here from the Manchester airport?

                It's on the corner of Union and Lake, just get on 293 north, take Granite St. Exit - take it and a right at end of ramp. This turns into Lake Ave but you won't be able to go up to Union since it's one way for a few blocks. Just take a left, then right then right to get on Union coming the other direction.

                We love the food too.

                  Thanks for me too. I've booked marked this. I think it is the closest taco truck to Maine. My kid was just in Mexico City eating real tacos al pastor, my fave.
