Roman Lane’s FAVE 3 Taco Trucks

By: Roman Lane, WAVE 3 News Brand Manager

Hi, I’m Roman, and I’m really addicted to street tacos. In fact, I love tacos SO much, I keep a list on my phone of every taco truck I find. After collecting a decent list, I began making “missions” out of visiting them to see which ones I liked most. I even posted on Facebook once, getting dozens of responses from other taco connoisseurs all over Louisville which even added more tacos to the list! However, for this article, I was able to narrow down my experiences to my FAVE 3 Taco Spots. After you read this, add these to your list and be sure to check them out for yourself!

Tacos La Esperanza Hope on Wheels

Taco La Esperanza - Hope on Wheels

Third on my list, is a taco truck that sits in a gas station parking lot at 3401 Breckenridge Lane. It’s a small red food truck, called Tacos La Esperanza – Hope on Wheels.

They prepare an assortment of authentic Mexican-style foods, but are largely known for their steak recipe. Their meats are cooked fresh with spices, onions and cilantro and sit inside of two lightly-grilled soft taco shells.

I think their tacos are pretty good, and the steak tacos are full of flavor. However, I did find many pieces of fat in their steak cuts, and that’s why this truck comes third on my list.

Taco Los Gorditos #3

The second-best taco truck I’ve had in Louisville is Taco Los Gorditos #3, which sits in a gas station parking lot at 7401 New LaGrange Road.

This was the first taco truck I ever experienced in Louisville and I was hooked! My favorites here are the chicken and steak tacos. Not only were these also grilled fresh, but were also prepared with onions, cilantro, spices and melted cheese.

One thing I love most about this truck is the consistency with their recipes. You can always bet you’re going to get your taco fix when visiting here.

Panchitos Ice Cream and Taqueria

Panchitos Ice Cream and Taqueria

My number one taco spot in Louisville goes to Panchitos Ice Cream and Taqueria. With locations on Preston Highway and Bardstown Road, it’s not actually a truck… but this place is amazing!

First, they have great value. For about $10, you receive any three tacos of your choice, any drink and a cup of one of their many flavors of ice cream (and there are PLENTY of flavors to choose from).

Their service is quick, and the quality of meats are great, whether you choose chicken, steak, carnita or shrimp! Their consistency is spot-on, and I always leave with a full stomach.

If you’re a true taco aficionado, take your friends and family here and I promise you will not be disappointed!
