I’m sure there are great taco trucks in every town, but if you want one in Sacramento, try Tacos Los Hermanos, on El Camino at Ethan Wy. Aurelio knows what he is doing and is a very nice person. He’s over at his usual spot every day from noonish till late night. Check it out soon!
P.S. Aurelio’s carnitas are muy delicioso!
