I can live on what these people call "street tacos". The best are the trucks that are cooking the stuff up fresh, you can find those all over the place heading down there. The one that often sets up shop at the club across the street from the Pilot has some outstanding food. Sometimes, it is across the street by the J and TA.

Do you remember what the exit # was? Or do you mean TA and Flying J near carrier drive exit? I gotta try them next time I'm down there.

I like the tacos from street vendors in Mexico, particularly the one in Tijuana, I can walk from the truck stop go across the border and get some good food for like 4 bucks, then walk back to the US side. I never been south from Laredo, though. Maybe there's some good food there too.

Exit 12 or 13, where all the truck stops are down there.

The truck stops are all clustered by 35...

If ya drive down the road I remember several taco trucks parked along the road in the industrial park...
I stay at our terminal in Laredo and out of those truck stops. Without that option, I would hang out no closer than the Loves or the Road Ranger across from it.
