Houston's Top Ten Taco Trucks

The taco truck is a revered and venerable institution in Houston, enjoyed by day laborers and lawyers alike. Whether grabbing breakfast tacos in the morning, a quick lunch while you stand in the shade of the truck or enjoying a weekend picnic-style lunch outside a farmers' market with tacos in one hand and a glass bottle of Mexican Coca-Cola in the other, taco trucks offer the kind of delicious, cheap and egalitarian meal that everyone can enjoy.

But with hundreds of taco trucks across the city, how do you weed out the good from the bad? Look no further: Houston's Top Ten Taco Trucks.

Robb Walsh, longtime connoisseur of taco trucks, has created this handy guide to the ten best taco trucks in Houston.
