The Food Truck Foodies Have Spoken: Mata Taco!
N3 Readers opine on portable provisions
In the latest of our highly subjective, unscientific and randomly gathered surveys we asked readers what their favorite meals on wheels offering might be.
Mata Taco drew in a solid 50% of the vote to take the top spot.
We also asked participants why they made their selection.
The Mata family is an amazing family. They mean so much to our community and the food is to die for.

We also asked folks how far they would travel and while many mentioned distances from 10 miles to up to an hour we were most impressed by this one for SR&SB:
“Anywhere in the lower peninsula.”
And from a Mata Taco fan:
“Thousands of miles if that meant getting amazing tacos...Wherever they are, I'll go!”
We will endeavor to let you know the where and when of the local food truck scene as we receive the info from the vendors.
