July wasn’t holding back its strong heat, but it didn’t keep Albert Blanco from standing in the sun and eating a single beef taco at La Sabrosita, a taco truck that parks at the corner of Washington and Pine streets every day.  Twenty-year-old Blanco was passing by when he stopped for a cheap, fresh snack and a cold can of Pepsi.

“I have been coming here since I was a kid,” said Blanco, who sat at the wooden picnic table and finished the juicy taco in a number of bites.

    I'm afraid I agree: Laurens's article was incomplete. A grade of "D" is the best she can hope for.

    La Morenita is one of my favorites as well. They moved to Cherokee and Lodi Ave. Here are my top 3, by location not name.
    1.Lodi and Cherokee
    2.Turner and Church
    3.Cherokee and Maple at Star Market
    If you are looking for a good Hot Dog cart, Stevie Steamers is really good. He moves around, but can usually be found 11:00Am to 1:00Pm on Guild and Industrial. If you like spicy try the Habenaro Dog. Dog, chips, and Soda for $5.00

    I agree David I wish they would list all 19. My favorite one (La Morenita) used to be on Harney Ln but they have moved and i dont know where to find them now. I also like the one on Church and Turner.

    Certainly not much of a "guide" to the local taco trucks. My family and I have tried about 10 - 12 different trucks in town and by far our favorite is "La Picosita" on the corner of Church and Turner. Just ask for no hot sauce if you do not like it too spicy or for the kids. By far some of the most tender and flavorful meats offered on the trucks. I am originally from San Diego and I think the trucks are very authentic. Don't forget the Horchata!

    Maybe I am missing something, but this isn't much of a "guide". It only mentions the location of two such taco trucks, and there are no reviews or comparisons except for a random quote.

    The headline got my mouth watering. :(
