Introducing breakfast tacos to Chicagoland, and being the second food truck in Evanston, we get lots of questions from folks! We love talking with people about our food, culture, and our startup model. Keep asking, and we’ll gladly keep answering!
No, breakfast burritos are not the same as breakfast tacos.
To the untrained eye, breakfast tacos and breakfast burritos may seem like the same thing, but they are really not! Here’s a couple of quick differences:
1) Size – Breakfast burritos are MUCH LARGER than breakfast tacos. One person might able to finish one burrito, but most people would eat two breakfast tacos.
2) Fillings – Although both have breakfast fillings, breakfast burritos are generally overstuffed and include avocado and sour cream (not typical breakfast toppings). Breakfast tacos are much simpler because it’s really just the breakfast filling, plus it’s topped off with fresh salsa.
3) Origins – Breakfast tacos are typically found in Central and South Texas. Breakfast burritos are found in the Southwest and California.
No, breakfast tacos aren’t JUST for breakfast.
In Texas, breakfast tacos are eaten 24/7! Just think about restaurants that offer all day breakfast. People want breakfast tacos at all times, including when they are out on the town having a good time. We typically operate our “food truck” in the mornings, but we occasionally offer breakfast tacos at afternoon and evening events. We highly recommend buying an extra breakfast taco in the morning, and then re-heating it for lunch or dinner!
We do not cook our breakfast tacos from home.
Yes, we get this question a lot! As a mobile food business licensed by the City of Evanston, we cannot cook our food at home. We have a partnership with NWC Food Incubator in Evanston where we contract to use their commercial kitchen space to store, cook, and assemble our food. This partnership is ideal for new startups such as us who are new to the market and are not ready to invest in a kitchen space of our own. NWC Food Incubator is home to several food companies in the Chicagoland area.
