Harbor hopping in New England for Tacos.

Harbor hopping in New England for Tacos.

Around Christmas of 2020, I had a taco dinner night with my middle school friends, Deepali and Hillary. If you follow my taco instagram, there is a picture of our taco spread on Hillary’s dining room table. It was quite the setup, where it looked like the table was set for 15 people and not just 3. But hey, tacos can make great leftovers. During dinner, we brainstormed planning a trip together and set a date in the calendar for…

Should I swipe left or right for Tacos Al Chile in Golden?

Should I swipe left or right for Tacos Al Chile in Golden?

The week prior to my visit to see Carolyn in Colorado, Carolyn and Tyler had some disappointing news. Their boat’s transmission died. We wanted a backup plan for boat day so we decided on a river float. None of us were prepared for the exhilarating rapids of Cedar Creek in Golden, Colorado. We all imagined the float to be super casual that maybe even involve a drink or two. That was clearly not the case. We screamed in fear, gripping…

The Golden Gate to my heart are tacos in San Francisco.

The Golden Gate to my heart are tacos in San Francisco.

In the beginning of July, I made my way back to the West Coast to explore 4 National Parks, 1 National Forest, and spend (not enough) time in San Francisco, California and Bend, Oregon. Over the course of two weeks, I hiked 76 miles, kayaked 5 miles, white water rafted 3 miles, and mountain biked over 20 miles. Even though I was a walking zombie by the end of the two week period, I would take an action-packed trip like…

Tacos, beer, and all the outdoorsy stuff in Oregon.

Tacos, beer, and all the outdoorsy stuff in Oregon.

The last tacos I had in Oregon were back in 2018. Click here to see the Portland, Oregon taco post. Just like my 2018 visit, I started my trip in California and worked my way up to Oregon. My Pittsburgh friend, Kevin, was working in Klamath Falls, OR. He met Alexis and I for kayaking on Shasta Lake, dining in Redding, and hiking the beautiful waterfalls of Shasta-Trinity National Forest. After a wonderful week and a half with Alexis, we…

Back to Bakersfield for more tacos.

Back to Bakersfield for more tacos.

Back in August of 2016, I wrote one of my first taco reviews and it was on Bakersfield tacos (link here). I cannot believe that I am coming up on my 5 year anniversary of the creation of my taco website. I looked back at my Bakersfield post and boy, was I a newb at describing tacos! At that time, I did not have a taco ranking system and I only took one photo of just one of the three…

You had tacos from a food truck at work the other day…

In the voice of Wayne from Letterkenny…”You had tacos from a food truck at work the other day…and you just happened to be working a daylight shift.” That was my scenario a few Fridays ago when the Cool Beans Taco truck rolled up outside of the hospital. My work recently restarted Food Truck Fridays once Pittsburgh started to open back up. I was really excited that the Cool Beans Taco truck was coming on a day that I was scheduled…

Started in Kentucky, now we here…..in Westerville, Ohio…with tacos.

Started in Kentucky, now we here…..in Westerville, Ohio…with tacos.

At the end of April, I set out on a 5-day, 339 mile bike packing trip. I opened up the bike packing Pandora’s box last October when my friend, Caitlyn, and I bicycled from Washington, D.C. to Pittsburgh. We had so much fun on our 5-day adventure. I really felt like I was living in the moment the entire time. Nothing else mattered and no worries were on my mind besides food, water, and shelter. Yes, I did think about…

Hot tacos this March in Florida.

Hot tacos this March in Florida.

I joined the Florida bandwagon and visited my friend Colin for a long weekend. Colin lives in Lakeland, Florida which is about 45 min inland from Tampa. Colin had an awesome map and itinerary which included bicycling, hiking, paddleboarding, beach time, and tacos. Colin knows me very well, clearly! All of my favorite things crammed into 3 full days. Gallito Taqueria Colin scooped me up from the Tampa Airport Thursday evening and he picked out a waterfront beer garden called…

Happy Hour Highs at Lowkey Taco.

Happy Hour Highs at Lowkey Taco.

My coworker, Keri, recently informed me about a restaurant that has been slaying tacos on Tuesdays at $2 a pop. Over the past summer, Keri did me a solid favor and supplied me with tacos from El Burro when I was doing my Rachel Carson Trail Challenge (see post here). When I need tacos, I know I can rely on her. Anyways, Keri told me to let her know a time when I would like to join her and Matt…

A quick U-Turn for tacos at La Catrina on Wheels.

A quick U-Turn for tacos at La Catrina on Wheels.

After a long shift at work, I made my way home in sight of making pizza for dinner. As I was driving down Western Avenue in the Northside, I saw a food truck stationed up outside of 412 Brewery. Once I saw that the food truck was La Catrina on Wheels, I immediately pulled a U-turn to park. My cravings changed quickly from pizza and wine to tacos and beer. La Catrina on Wheels is a taco truck that has…
