Grocery and Convenience Stores
Our story begins with a family of shopkeepers from Jalisco, Mexico and their journey to Joliet, Illinois. In 1996, after noticing a growing need for the foods they missed so dearly, they decided to do what they knew best and opened a small grocery store making Hispanic products easily available. With limited space inside and limited resources, the Original Joliet Taco Truck was born always using the freshest ingredients and fast service, all while maintaining accessible prices. In 2014 we inaugurated our new kitchen where we could work year-round, and now the truck is used for special events. For 25 years we have worked to maintain our Dollar Taco, despite the ever-rising cost of goods from our suppliers. Unfortunately, the events of 2020 that we are living through have forced us to reevaluate our pricing, due to short supply and continued rise of the cost of goods. We wish to always serve our community and continue our efforts to keep our prices from rising for many years to come while always maintaining our bold flavors!
