Taco Truckers Trek To Taco Truck Tour
Posted by cmh gourmand on April 25, 2009
The first Taco Truck Tour was a success. You can read more about this at Taco Truck Tour Recap from TacoTrucksColumbus.com, more photos and stories will be posted at TacoTrucksColumbus during the week of April 27th. In May, expect a Columbus Foodcast Episode about the the Tour and the blog. There is also an article in one of the local Latino newspapers. Thanks to everyone that came out. Congratulations to Hungry Woolf and Taco Drew on an excellent execution of this event. Also, this was the debut of Taco Corey as official head counter (80+ people).
The Tour showcased some of the best Taco Trucks of the west side. Most of the usual ilk were not present for the tour. We were joined by some great groups of people from the Easy Peasy Scooter Posse, ScootColumbus/The Columbus Cutters Scoot Club, bicyclists – including the group with Columbus Rides. Rest assured, this Columbus, people drove cars as well.
Taco Tourists had a map with 6 trucks to choose from so after a quick Hola – we sent them on their way to explore the wild, wild west side and the Taco Square (West Broad Street, Georgesville Road, Sullivant Ave. and Wilson Road).
As I made my rounds checking on our taco touristas at the different trucks, I discovered a truck from the east side has moved out west and a Mexican seafood truck has opened for the season.
I ended up at Los Potosinos (see TacoTrucksColumbus.com as well as my post from March 19th). This was the taco tourist favorite for the day. Los Potosinos served up Polla al Carbon San Luis Potosini style.
My favorite of the day was the premiere of ice cream at Los Potosinos. I had two servings – “mixto” – with all of the flavors. Yum.
Taco Truck season is now in full bloom, warm weather means more trucks. Some trucks move around and vary location. The best way to keep tabs on truck tracking is at TACOTRUCKSCOLUMBUS.COM
Special thanks to Columbus artist Robert Patricy for his creation of the logo for the tour.

Cbus Corners is an initiative of the Columbus Social Media Cafe to share our favorite parts of Columbus – known and unknown. The Taco Truck Tour was intended to share a tasty side of the West Side. Hence the CbusCorners tag.
