We use to have those come around the tech district in Irving... I don't remember anything good coming off those things and we often referred to them as the Roach Coach! I was way to young back then to appreciate food.

No taco trucks around here either, city passed an ordinance to regulate them.
We do have hot dog stands outside our Lowes Home Improvement stores that
aren't bad.

Sometimes I like to fantasize about a Taco Truck type of operation, selling unusual
"fast foods". Probably be too much work and not enough bucks. Maybe just a state
fair food booth then, yeah..... ;)

When I was reading this post yesterday, I was thinking what a neat idea it would be to have a travelling taco truck, one that would drive right to your house and make them fresh in your driveway, rather than you driving to the nearest taco "hades" if you were in the mood and didn't have the ingredients. This way if you are a fan of hard shells like I am, you don't need to worry about soggy shells. If an operation can coordinate its business like pizza deliveries, several customers in the same area, it might work.
You heard it here first.

I was thinking about a Bagel truck for early morning sundays, the lazy people who dont feel like getting up in the morning and driving to the bagel store. Not sure how much of a profit it would make, but sure would be convenient

No taco stands here but wish we did. Now that I think of it, we used to have a lot of hot dog trucks but haven't seen those in awhile either.

People will pay for convenience. Especially early morning convenience where they don't have to dress to go out and pick something up.
You could operate like the milkmen used to, go customer to customer leaving a bag of bagels in their container, maybe even an insulated carafe of hot coffee.
