Taco Taxi restaurants feature authentic and traditional Mexican dishes, all of which have come from family recipes handed down through the generations.
Taco Taxi’s bright yellow brick-and-mortar restaurant has been a mainstay on Lake Street since 2005. But when brothers Carlos and Hector Lopez initially decided to bring their hometown Jalisco, Mexico street food to the Twin Cities, they weren’t sure how successful the business would be.
Turns out, people really like tacos—especially theirs. So much so, that they added a Taco Taxi food truck to the mix and even cater events. For Carlos, a big part of their success is the Latino community in Minneapolis. And the fact that Lake Street is the heart of the Latino community is one of Carlos’s favorite parts about having his business here.
“At Taco Taxi, our commitment is to serve not just our guests, but our entire community,” Carlos said. “We consider our customers to be part of the family here at Taco Taxi, and we will continue to serve the community for generations to come. Carrying on this tradition is part of the Jalisco food style, and will always be a part of Taco Taxi.”
