Charlie’s Tacos

Highland Park Taco Truck

Charlie’s Tacos is relatively new on the scene, and that fact is pretty clear from their truck – it’s well lit and well maintained, clean and bright without a scratch on the logo or a rogue punk band sticker anywhere to be found. They’ve also made a point of establishing a presence: they’re almost always there, camped out somewhere in the immediate vicinity of York and Avenue 50 from before dinner until right around last call. There’s a pretty straightforward selection, save one unusual choice – trompa, a cut of meat that the taqueros at Charlie’s billed as beef cheek. It is supremely tender, pillowy soft and richly bovine, a welcome change of pace from your standard far-out cuts like tripas or buche. The salsas are of good quality and mounted on the edge of the truck as they should be, the chipotle red and tomatillo green as usual.
