Where it all begins.

This is a taco truck located on Crows Landing Rd. in Modesto, California. There are several "Jessica" trucks in our city. This is #4. There are usually two down on 6th street across from Crescent Supply and there is one mysteriously out of rotation at all times. Different "Jessica's" turn up in different places. This is a great truck to use as our first post on TGITT. This is both my (Chris) and Aaron's first truck experience here. Let's get into it.

What makes this truck unique is that it is the best of both Central Valley Mexican food is a truck parked next to a building. The food is made in the truck. You eat it in the building. It's here in this building...Google caught it before it became a Taqueria...

Aaron: By the way, "XV AƱera Elegante" ironically translates roughly to, "Oh my lord these burritos are awesome!"
Chris: Burritos from Tacos Jessica are among my very favorites. My brother-in-law introduced me to these when I first came to Modesto. They are really my first love in taco truck eating. How do these at the "taqueria" stack up?

Chris: They are BIG. Jessica burritos have always weighed in as one of the biggest and this was the biggest Jessica burrito I think I've ever seen. Hot and full of meat and gooey goodness.

Aaron: They are BIG, and honor the name of Jessica. No filler here.

What about value?

Chris: The burritos here are .50 more than the other Jessicas but way bigger and in an air conditioned building. I think this has something to do with the price hike. Also notice, the tacos (big and meaty as ever) are only .50 each. Industry standard is $1.00!

How about taste?

Chris: I think these pictures are self-explanatory. There wasn't a lot of talkin' going on around that table...

Aaron: Let me explain these pictures. They are of us, eating burritos in the Tacos Jessica "Truckeria".

Concensus: For over all deliciousness, largeness, great prices and pretty good atmosphere to boot, we all gave Jessica #4 on Crows Landing Road, 4 out of 5 tacos.

This being our first review, all future trucks will have some big burrito foils to fill, and we may never experience a 'five out of five' taco truck on this side of heaven, but it's all about the journey.

Good on ya Jessica, you'll always be our first lady of taco and burrito delights.
