Onward and upward

Well, it's not Friday but... "Thank God, It's Taco Trucks!" In this entry, we have a guest reviewer...recording artist and California legend, Justin Fox! After Justin's concert in Modesto, he went with us to another local legend, Tacos Vallarta located at the corner of 14th and D Streets in Downtown Modesto right next to Tires Vallarta. That's right, this is a tire shop/taco truck. Here we go...

Chris: It was a chilly night late in April and we eagerly awaited our tacos, willing to face the cold for taco goodness. There's Justin there on the left next to Aaron and my son Josh, that's the rest of my family on the right.

Justin: "I was excited."

Aaron: I had a certain expectation of glory.

Chris: The prices are standard. They have a more expensive burrito option if you want it really big. But otherwise, there's nothing surprising about the menu.

Aaron: It is a little more than some trucks but it is well worth it.

Justin: "good size chicken pieces in the tacos and you get a free lunch with the purchase of 4 tires. You can't beat that."

Chris: This place always has people waiting for food. It is good. At Vallarta, the name of the game is chicken. Many taco trucks serve boiled chicken that's kinda wet. Vallarta grills the chicken so it has a very pleasing texture...crispy and good.

Aaron: Size is good and is not bloated or weighed down by grease. It leaves you feeling satisfied without feeling sick. It's smooth but bold, daring yet inviting. The red sauce pulls you in by the collars, lays a wet sloppy one on you and you know you'll never be the same She's bold, but oh so elegant. Always elegant.

Justin: "spicy sauce, intricate complexities. The extra little things like...radishes are worth noting."

Chris: It's also a very family friendly environment. Nice place to sit.

Aaron: We saw our librarian there. That's saying something. I don't know what it's saying, but I know it's good.

Justin: "The wooden tables were a nice height. The drive into the parking lot is a four wheeling experience of adventure with the possibility of finding hidden treasure."

So for a delicious taco truck experience, a kind staff and the option to get new tires if you wanted to, we at TGITT give Tacos Vallarta 4 out of 5 tacos

And for that sweet red sauce, we'll throw on another half! Thanks Vallarta and special thanks to Justin Fox, driving down a highway and singing in a church near you.
