It was only a few years ago that food trucks were usually only found at places like construction sites, where workers didn’t have much time during a lunch break to get to an actual restaurant or even a fast food joint. That was then, this is now. Food trucks have become a favorite dining destination among Millennials, with statistics showing that about half of all Millennials have partaken in goods from the mobile eateries and 84% of foodies who follow food trucks on social media check on them at least once a week to see what’s new.
Now there’s even the Great American Foodie Fest in California, Nevada, and Arizona, where over 50 of the nation’s best food trucks and specialty food vendors come together to wow their loyal fans. Many of the trucks have been featured on the Food Network, the Cooking Channel, and the Travel Channel, and more than 50,000 foodies show up at the events to eat mobile food to their heart’s content (or at least until the event closes).
Unlike the fast rise of food trucks, Taco Tuesdays have been a staple at Mexican restaurants (and others) for several decades now. In what might be called a perfect culinary storm, the Taco Tuesday tradition (say that 5 times fast!) and the newfound popularity of food trucks have spawned what are commonly referred to as Street Tacos. That means that across this great nation, Millennials and other foodies can find inexpensive tacos from food trucks on any given Tuesday and in multiple locations. Ain’t ‘Merica great?
And speaking of multiple locations, it just so happens that the Elements, CreekSide, and Overtime restaurants in the Win-River Resort and Casino all serve street tacos, truck tacos, or whatever else you want to call them for their own Taco Tuesdays. Every Tuesday, of course, from 11am to 9pm. That’s almost a full Tuesday of tacos. And you can get them with spicy shredded chicken or carnitas. Yum, yum, and yum!
The tacos are 5 for $5, so make sure you bring wither a hearty appetite and some friends to get the best deal. You can also order them individually for $1.50 each. The extra fifty cents won’t break the bank, but personally I’d recommend the package deal. We are talking about street tacos after all.
Just like everything else, street tacos are better at The River!
