Marquette's taco truck wins national award

It should come as no surprise to those who have dined upon the tastiness that is the Dia de los Tacos food truck in Marquette, but for the second year in a row they have been named the best taco truck in the country by Mobile-Cuisine.com.

The truck, owned and operated by Marquette native and long-time chef Mike Walker, serves up a small variety of different tacos, all of which are outstanding in their own right. And for those in the know, there's even a secret menu that will allow some darn tasty alterations on those tacos (like Getz's style, or ordered with crispy cheese).

In second place, again, was Lloyd's Taco Truck in Buffalo, New York. We here at U.P. Second Wave traveled through Buffalo last year specifically to try the No. 2 taco truck in the nation and while we may be slightly biased, it really didn't hold a candle to the offerings at Dia de los Tacos (biased media? Nah!).

For those who haven't had the opportunity to try Walker's tacos, you can catch the truck during lunch hours at Pathways Community Mental Health (Monday), University BP (Tuesday and Friday), Valle's Corner Store (Wednesday) and the U.P. Medical Center (Thursday). You can also snag some at the Ore Dock Brewing Company and Blackrocks Brewery during dinner time on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

Not sure what to order? Try the Selma with no herb garnish, extra cheese (crispy) and make it Getz's style for a little added awesomeness.
