Honest Tom’s Tacos

Food truck turned laid-back taqueria

Honest Tom’s

“Honest” Tom McCusker parlayed a successful food truck into this low-key, living room-chill taqueria, which doles out the tortilla-wrapped goodness from morning (breakfast tacos!) to evening. Breakfast tacos overflowingwith bacon, potatoes, tomatoes and fresh guacamole draw crowds from all over the city. BYO Tecate, leaving the hot sauce to them.
