About

El Tacorriendo is owned by Alejandro and Ashley Leon. They opened El Tacorriendo in March of 2016.  After working many years in Mexican Restaurants they felt that the restaurants were missing a huge part of real Mexican food. They took it into their own consideration and created a food truck that provides authentic Mexican food that evolves from Alejandro’s heritage in Guadalajara, Mexico. They love providing their customers with fresh and authentic Mexican food, friendly service, and building relationships in communities they serve.

“Easily the best authentic Mexican food around.”

The best tacos I've had in years, and easily of comparable quality to what you would find at a street vendor in Mexico. Everything I've had was excellent, and the employees are awesome to boot.

“I will definitely order from here again!”

I was a bit skeptical about a food truck restaurant. However I ordered from them for the first time today and it was amazing! I ordered the chicken quesadilla and a pastor taco! Both were delicious! A++++
