Taqueria Guadalajara – Your Friendly Neighborhood Taco Truck

Filed under: Bellevue, Food, Redmond — Tags: — Brian Lutz @ 1:15 pm

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I decided that today would be a good day to pay a visit to the friendly neighborhood taco truck for lunch.  It seems that I wasn’t the only one, as the nice weather helped to draw a pretty good crowd to the place for lunch today.

Taqueria Guadalajara has been around the neighborhood in one spot or another for a number of years now (it tends to move on a semi-regular basis,) and serves up some tasty food for pretty reasonable prices, even if the truck does look a bit rough around the edges these days.  Currently, it resides in the parking lot of the Overlake 76 gas station at the corner of 148th and Northeast 24th (which would actually put it just barely within the Bellevue city limits, but most people around here still seem to refer to it as the Redmond taco truck.) 

My usual order is one of their burritos with either chicken (pictured above) or Carne Asada, a steal at $4.50 (tax included.)  At most of the other places in the neighborhood that serve burritos like this you’d be hard pressed to get out the door for much less than seven bucks, and this one is quite a bit tastier than most of those.  The tacos here are pretty good too, although they aren’t anything like what you’d expect a taco to be if you’ve been raised on Taco Bell and other gringo fast food.  Either way, Taqueria Guadalajara is a nice spot to grab a quick bite to eat in the Overlake neighborhood as long as you can actually find it (if it moves, I’ll be sure to update this post to keep up with it.)

  4. Awesome! Can anyone give me a quick idea of the menu? I’ll be taking orders from the office tomorrow and going down to pick up lunch for 8. Also, I see in the picture that they open at 11, is that right?
