Taqueria Contreras: New taco truck in West Seattle

Haven’t had dinner yet? Like Mexican food? New option – West Seattle’s second taco truck has arrived (the first one is El Rey Del Taco, which has been north of Home Depot for more than 2 years). Thanks to Brent for the tip – Taqueria Contreras is now open outside the Super 24 at 5455 Delridge Way. It’s along the north side of the store, and even if you are driving south, it’s not easy to see – but you can park on the south or west sides of the store. They say they’re open 10 am-10 pm, seven days a week, and this is their first week; according to the business-card-size menu they gave us, their offerings include:

Tacos $1.25
Burrito $5.50
Torta $6.50
Quesadilla $5.50
Mulitas $2
Sopitos $2.50
Alambres $8.99
Enchiladas $7.99
Burrito Mojado $7.99

Special #1 – 5 tacos, 1 can soda $6.75; special #2, 1 burrito, 1 taco, 1 can soda, $6.75

Their list of meats: Beef, pork, barbecue pork, chicken, beef tongue, beef cheeks. You can call in advance for a to-go order, 206-391-7608.

    Sweet! Getting closer to Fauntleroy.

    Don’t like Mexican food? Don’t go to eat there. Why bother commenting?

    Will have to give this one a try. I love the one down in South Park.

    Has anyone eaten at that El Rey Del Taco truck? I drive by it everyday on the way to and from work and I’ve never seen a car there…

    I have, and wasn’t too impressed Mat. I HAVE seen others comment that they really like it, so will give them another try.
    My current favorite is Tacos Maestro on Pac. Hwy. S., a few blocks N. of the light-rail station.

    Hope they don’t get TOO big, Nike might ask for their swoosh back. And probably none too politely.

    Nice! Taco trucks are one of the best things about so. Cal. Glad to see them popping up all over Seattle.

Sorry, comment time is over.
