Nate's Taco Truck Stand (Closed)
Known for five years for his taco cart at local farmers markets and a bustling business on Virginia Commonwealth University's campus, proprieter Nate Gutierrez has been a mostly one man show. He's recently broken out of the taco box to expand to a permanent location in the Taco Truck Stand. The emphasis is on simple and fresh, with a few more-exotic offerings, like crispy chicken skin, chicharones, or lengua. The Frito Pie is surprisingly good as well. Get the chicken or chorizo taco on corn tortilla if you are unsure. Hours vary, but they're only open weekdays for lunch; however, they did just extend hours to 6:30 pm Fridays for those who want to get tacos on their way home from work. Strictly takeout for now, bar stools for the waiting area will probably arrive soon. Credit cards are accepted through an attachment to the owner’s smart phone.
