We’ve all driven by it; that taco trailer on the back road to Walmart. Maybe you have never given it much thought before. Maybe you have, but never had the time or courage to stop there.
That, my friends, should change.
The first couple of times I tried going, it was closed. With no hours or phone number posted, I was a little baffled. Finally one Friday at noon a friend and I hit the jackpot: The trailer was open with a canopy set up next to it and chairs and tables where customers could sit and eat. We pulled up next to the storage shed located next to it and parked on the gravel, then walked out and waited in line to order.
The taco stand has a fairly simple menu: burritos, tacos or tostadas, with your choice of steak, beef, pork, or chicken. The burrito is pretty decent sized, so I decided to just try a chicken tostada and a couple of beef tacos. With the burrito at $4, a taco at $1 and a tostada for $1.50, the pricing isn’t bad for a college budget.
I was immensely impressed with the taco trailer. We ordered our food to-go and brought it back to campus to eat before our next class. I could barely wait on the drive back because it smelled so good. I started with the tostada, which came topped with lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. The tacos, topped with fresh cilantro, were especially delicious along with the side of spicy salsa that came with them.
All in all it was a positive experience and I would definitely go again. The man who owns the taco trailer told us to call him “Taco” and was very friendly when taking our order. While it is no gourmet Mexican restaurant, of course, it is definitely a Searcy must-try for students wanting a break from Taco Bell or for those who love back road cuisine adventures.
