Junior’s Taco truck


Overall:[xrr rating=4/5]

This review was a special request from my friend Matt Minerd, who introduced me to Junior’s Taco truck after a Crew game this summer. With one bite, I instantly fell in love. The fantastic and authentic Mexican food, combined with my recent fascination with food trucks, has made Junior’s one of my favorite places to eat outside. As Matt’s wife Amelia says, “this place just feels like summer.”

Appearance/Atmosphere:[xrr rating=4/5]

Kate orderingThere is nothing fancy about Junior’s atmosphere. It is simply a taco truck parked next to a convenience store. But that doesn’t keep it from having a great atmosphere. I enjoy grabbing some “Mexican beverages” from the convenience store before settling down at the outdoor tables next to the truck. Sitting at their tables, which overlook a park, transports me back to the places I ate on my last trip to Puerto Vallarta.

The Food:[xrr rating=5/5]

The menu includes a wide variety of traditional Mexican options, including tacos, burritos, quesadillas and tortas. For this review, I had several friends with me, so we tried a little bit of everything. Kate Schmidt and Amelia Minerd had the quesadilla, which they graded a B+. Kate's quesadilla

Stephanie ordered a few tacos, which she graded A- only because she’s a wimp when it comes to spicy food.

Matt and I ordered burritos, which we graded A++++.

Finally, Seth Eddleblute took one for the team and tried the torta. He gave the torta a C+ and made sure I recognized his selfless act of trying something new for the sake of this review.

The team at Junior’s falls all over themselves to make sure we enjoy our experience. They are always so grateful that we came, which makes it easy to go back.

Location:[xrr rating=4/5]

Located on 5th Avenue between Neil Ave and High St, Junior’s is within walking distance for many of you Victorian Village and Harrison West folks. If not, there is plenty of free street parking nearby. One benefit of the location is the occasional vagrant who walks by, adding a sense of adventure to the dining experience.
