LEO’s Eats with

East Enders who’ve been jealous of their Buechel and Fern Creek neighbors over Las Gorditas, the Mexico City-style taco wagon that pulls up weekend evenings in the Eastland Shopping Center (LEO Weekly, May 28), can now relax: They have their own taco truck, Tacos Toreados, where the amiable proprietor Juan Deleon offers authentic delights served out the window of a wagon parked in front of Choi’s Asian Food Market in Lyndon.

We’ve been over a couple of times, and I can testify that the food is inexpensive ($1.50 for soft, Mexican-style tacos with a variety of fillings; $5 for torta sandwiches and so on).

Tacos Toreados is open 6 p.m.-midnight Tuesdays through Saturdays, 5-11 p.m. Sundays and closed Mondays. Cut them a little slack if they’re running late … this is a tiny, family operation.

Deleon says he hopes to stay open all winter if the weather’s not too bad, and he may set up a canopy with heaters. Me, I’ll load up and eat in the comfort of my car until spring gets here.
