Don Pedro (Taco Truck) now in Clintonville

Posted by cmh gourmand on June 2, 2016

Don Pedro Truck

(Update – June 13th – Sorry to say these guys have vanished already).

Long time fans of Taco Trucks Columbus know we/I would include Don Pedro’s as one of our Top Ten Taco Trucks over the years. Their hours, locations and operation have been hit or miss during the last couple years to the point I was fairly sure they were closed. That is a shame because we came to know the owners, actually the whole family, as we enjoyed their food and showcased them in some events. For some history take a look at -> this, -> this and -> that.

So while running some errands this week, I was surprised to see a new food truck at the Super Food Mart on Clintonville ( 3166 N High St, Columbus, OH 43202). This location has a long history as a food truck destination starting with Ray Ray’s, then Mya’s Fried Chicken and El Manantial Latino. From a distance, I was not sure I wanted to block out time to check out this new mobile food vendor. Approaching the blue and yellow truck (always popular in OSU obsessed Columbus) the owners recognized me at the same time I recognized them. After a mini reunion and catching up, it was time to order food. I opted to get something safe for Mrs. Gourmand by ordering a quesadilla. It was just as good as I recalled it and Mrs. Gourmand using her litmus test (of how does this compare to Taco Nazo) found this to be very good too. One warning. I forgot how hot their green salsa is but fortunately there was about 1/2 pound of sour cream with the quesadilla to quench my burning taste buds. I opted for chicken but I could have had ham, pork, beef or even hot dogs as my protein of choice.

Don Pedro Food

The menu is deep and diverse including the standards – tacos, quesadillas, burritos, (some of the best on the city) Tortas, agua frescas and coming soon some daily and weekend only specials. They just opened this week and could use some foot traffic for an infusion of capital to stay in the area and add to the menu. So if you are in or near Clintonville, I’d love for you to drop in for a meal and welcome them to my/our barrio. There are two picnic tables nearby for eating on site if you choose.

  1. Is that a sopito in the picture on the lower left? It’s not specifically called out on the menu, but I’m hoping…

    • In the past, they had them. I can not confirm they have them now If you go, and find them, let me know. If they do not have them but you ask, I think they would make one for you if in their wheelhouse.
