We're more than just great tacos.
Roadside Tacos was simultaneously the natural next step in my career path and an entirely unexpected decision. I have worked in the food industry my entire life. My father owned restaurants when I was a kid, mostly small food courts. Growing up, I periodically helped out with small tasks.
When I was around 18, my dad bought a small taco cart that previously belonged to a neighboring restaurant. He let me run the cart myself, a small scale entrepreneurial endeavor that would go on to shape my career. I was at the cusp of leaving home and making decisions about my future. Running that taco cart solidified the path I wanted to take. I followed in my father’s footsteps, working in various hotel restaurants and climbing the ladder from regular cook to executive chef. Eventually, I took a job at Wells Fargo doing corporate dining and catering.
