9. Mazorca Tacos
This brand new taco truck in the Fifth Ward is to die for. They're parked on the corner of 1st and Pittsburgh every day, and it's always a good choice. This is because these are some of the best tacos you can find, and they hand craft the tortillas themselves. Make sure to bring some cash, as they don't take cards. This stationary taco 'truck' gets five stars from us.
