Day 6: Taco Jalisco Taco Truck Still a No Show

Columbus Day marked the sixth day in a row since local foodies have had a chance to dine on burritos and tacos from the locally famous food vendor.

The popular Taco Jalisco taco truck was missing in action again on Monday, October 8.  The truck’s regular spot next to the Liquor Warehouse on Military East was blocked by a gate and a picnic table beside the building, normally full with students and workers from nearby businesses, sat empty.

The owner of the Liquor Warehouse, Sunita Verma, says the food truck has been hampered by what some might refer to as onerous government regulations like needing a business license and workers needing government issued picture identification.

The truck’s owner did not return phone calls Monday from Benicia Patch and with city and county governments closed in observance of Columbus Day, it wasn’t possible to follow up on any of the rumors.

Benicia Patch will continue to update readers as the story develops.

Tell me it's not so ! Benicia's notorious business friendly climate has run the truck out of town ? Could it be another great victory for the nanny state?

We'll hopefully know by the end of the day what the problem is.

Could it be that a couple of people from Benicia came down with food poisening in Vallejo from these trucks.

This is so exciting, " like a bad sitcom" who will solve this mystery, will it be you? When you think about it, its better nees than hearing about crime in Benicia. We can agree, we all love to eat.
