In the increasingly crowded Eastside food and drink scene, Granny’s Tacos has carved out plenty of space. Their incredible homestyle tacos have sustained a buzz that started with word of mouth, and the joint has become a fixture on East 7th. Husband-and-wife owners Maria Rios Vega and Armando Vazquez share duties in the repurposed ambulance, Armando at the window and Maria cooking recipes passed down through generations of family. You can find the Granny’s food truck in the lot between Revival Coffee and Kebabalicious, where it’s open from 8 am to 3 pm, seven days a week.
Must-try taco: Chilaquiles Taco
The handmade corn tortillas are the stars here, and they especially shine in Granny’s Chilaquiles Taco, with tortilla strips simmered in your choice of red, green, or mole sauce, then littered with onion, chicken, sour cream, and melty Mexican cheeses.
