TACO SHOP
MENU

After two years serving from the tiniest food truck in America (a Smart Car!), we settled into our super tiny taco shop in Evanston, IL. Open seven days a week, you can grab handmade breakfast tacos made fresh daily.

Our handmade beans, cage-free eggs, fresh vegetables, and high- quality meats are hugged by warm, freshly-cooked flour tortillas—perfect for your weekday commute, a quick & healthy lunch, or a weekend treat. 🌼🌼
