Hear from the 2023 Participants: 

When did you start your taco truck and what’s your favorite part about running it?

"We stared selling our traditional barbacoa tacos in 2017 outside our ice cream shop due to the slow ice cream business in our area. The tacos started bringing more and more customers that we had to find a way to sell our food on daily basis. That's when we acquired the food trailer in 2019. My favorite part is that we can share our traditions, culture and our barbacoa family recipe that's been with us for over 30 years." - Garrafa

What are you looking forward to the most about Taco Truck Throwdown?

"We are looking forward to show off our one item menu food truck. After all we only have 1 job and that is to make THEE BEST FISH TACO in Fresno. We are hoping to gain exposure from the Taco Throwdown since we just moved here to Fresno with no family or friends. Any exposure helps this family owned food truck." - Yasss Fish Tacos

Favorite taco on your menu?

"Our favorite taco on our menu is Fried Shrimp Taco but all of our tacos are delicious. They all have different toppings which makes each and every one of them unique." - Taco Pinto
