No seating at taco trucks?

normalheightsfoodie Jul 26, 2010 10:51 PM

What happened to the seating and cabana at the Taco German truck on 35th and Univ.? Luckily I had a folding chair in my trunk. I am afraid this will really hurt their business, how will they serve the stuff in those great glass goblets? It will be nearly imposssible to eat their quesadilla standing up.

    I always carry a couple of folding chairs in my car for this reason.

      I was wondering the same thing. Probably the latest salvo of complaints from restauranteurs who fear competition.

          Probably not specifically there, but then again that's the only truck I've seen that had tables and chairs. I wonder if there's been a stepping up in enforcement.

            are they not allowed to setup chairs/tables?

              Last time I went there were none to be seen.

        Same as El Pescador. I found myself balancing my plate on the edge of a trashcan, which according to most health officials, is less than optimum.

        They had some seats, but no tables.

          You obviously are unaware of the secret premium seating at El Pescador, Fakey. Walk a block or so towards the ocean on Pearl, and sit in that nice plastic brown bench with a MTS sign in front of it. If it is occupied or if you want to face the south, cross Pearl Street (preferably at a light) and there is a bench in that area as well.

            Yeah I considered that. But I had been around the corner at Harbor Freight for some tools, and was not appropriately attired for the private dining area.
