Taqueria Esquivel is a family truck. All 5 family members, in addition to other employees, work the truck.
This is the first taco truck the family has had
Tacos and flautas are a couple of the customers’ favorites.
Esquivel believes that people choose his stand because of his unique flavor that has roots from Michoacan, Mexico.
Pictured are a pastor quesadilla, a pastor huarache, and french fries.
Esquivel’s salsa cart has all the taco essentials. Cilantro, onion, pickled carrots, pickled onions, and a variety of salsas.
Tacos El Primo
Primo means cousin in English, which is a very fitted name for this truck considering that two cousins are the founders of this truck.
Taqueria el primo use to be located in LA for about 6 years. When the family moved to Kyle they decided to open their taco truck here as well, and they have been in Kyle for about 9 years. Every year they have an anniversary celebration, where they have giveaways, free tacos, and live music.
This is the t-shirt uniform that all of the employees wear.
You can’t have a taco without salsa. El Primo has a variety of 3 salsas that range in spiciness.
The compliments to every taco are cilantro, onion, and lime. El primo also has carrots in his salsa cart, but don’t be fooled by these innocent looking carrots, because they are spicy.
Two of the most sold items are the pastor tacos and the hamburger (not pictured. )
This is a pastor quesadilla.
Two tacos de buche and one taco al pastor.
This is Taqueria D.F. and Mario Valverde’s first taco truck. He was inspired by his dad, who use to have a taco truck in Houston, to open up his very own taco truck.
Mario’s taco truck was in Austin’s 7th street for about 7 years. When he made the move to Kyle, he decided to move the truck to Kyle as well where he has been for the past 8 months.
Mario’s plan for the future is to open more taco trucks in Kyle.
One of the most sold menu items is the Torta. This is the pastor torta which will cost $9 and measures almost a footlong.
Mario believes that people come to his taco stand because he’s able to provide the unique taste of Mexico D.F.’s food. He also has other plates that are unique to Mexico, D.F.
This is aqua de Horchata. One of a few aguas frescas they sell.
