The Great Taco Run of 2020

Raise your hand if tacos are your thing! Yup, they are in this house. A while I ago I saw a post about a taco truck trip and since no one can travel far from home this summer, we decided to check it out for ourselves.

We created our own rating system with the possibility of a perfect score at 35. The highest score achieved was 31.5 and the lowest was 7. Some of the items we graded for were tortilla, meat, beans, and size.  Below are 5 of our favorite stops with their score.

What are you doing to get to know your area a little better this summer?

  1. El Jalisco located at 8726 SW Barber Blvd Portland, OR (Rating: 31.50)
  2. Don Pedro at 5900 NE Fourth Plain Blvd Vancouver, WA (Rating 25.75)
  3. Trejo’s Mexican at 1833 W Court Street Pasco, WA (Rating: 28.50)
  4. Raliberto’s Taco Shop at 233 128th Street Everett, WA (Rating: 28.75)
  5. El Chapulin Oaxaqueno at 4451 California Ave SW Seattle, WA (Rating: 28.50)

Destination: Tacoma

Another work destination had me located in Tacoma for a few days. It was nice spending some time getting to know a place that I usually drive through to other locations. There was a lot of fun things to see and do while I was there and while I have posted before about the Museums, this time I found myself exploring another area. Here are 5 new things that I found that I would go back to in a heartbeat.

  1. Cook’s Tavern
  2. University of Puget Sound
  3. Hotel Murano  
  4. Old Town Tacoma
  5. Boathouse 19
