Announcing the taco-tasting event the Valley has been waiting for: the Central California Taco Truck Throwdown.
OVERVIEW: The best taco truck in Central California will be crowned at a taste-off inside the gates of Chukchansi Park on Aug. 25. Carnivorous carne asada chasers can sample eight of the best traveling tacos that our Valley has to offer. And we sure have some good ones.
The event is brought to you by The Grizzlies, The Beehive and the upstart FresnoTacos.com (an in-the-works site from myself, James of Taste Fresno and Floyd of Antilabs). This will be, to our knowledge at least, the first mobile food competition in the Central Valley. It’s also the Grizzlies’ final Thirsty Thursday of the season. Bring your appetite.
TACO TASTING SPECIFICS: If you’re an eager tortilla tasters, you’ll buy a flat-fee entry ticket that gets you into the Grizzlies game and procures you a punch-card allowing for one taco at each truck. At the end, you’ll cast a vote for the best overall taco. Ticketing details to be announced soon.
NOMINATIONS: We know some stellar taco trucks, but we don’t know them all. So we want to hear about your favorite spot. This is not just limited to Fresno, so if you know a great place in Parlier or Chowchilla or Selma, let us know. It just has to be a truck — not a restaurant or stand. Just a leave a comment with your nomination.
