Cinco De Mayo Taqueria Truck – South Tulsa’s Taco Destination

By on September 13, 2016

Summer’s fading sun makes me thirst for one last food adventure that can punctuate the last hot days of the warm season. I found one nestled on a heavily trafficked road, hiding right in plain view, a wonderful food truck experience that features real Mexican taste and exceptional value. This is also the first Tulsa Food Truck to utilize the new Order On My Way app, which we love because it helps “mom and pop” operations run as efficiently as possible.

Taqueria Cinco de Mayo is a food truck that sits on the busy corner at Southeast corner of 71st and Sheridan. This is where food truck owner Omar Lara creates his secret recipe for his Carne Asada Tacos with a spicy marinade and tomatillo sauce. This large platter of three street tacos featuring his marinated creation was more than enough lunch for me and instantly transported me to a late summer reverie.

On our visit, I also sampled the Enchilada Verde, a hefty saucer of enchiladas stuffed with chicken, swimming in green tomatillo sauce. This dish is definitely large enough to share with friend.

Cinco de Mayos’ Burrito Verde, is a grilled chicken burrito with tasty onions, tomatillo sauce and cheese and another generous offering that makes a large lunch or dinner for those with larger appetites. The menu is filled with other taste-pleasing entrees, perfect for carry out and sharing with co-workers and ideal for carrying home during busy week nights.

Taqueria Cinco de Mayo is pleased to cater events and is happy to participate with Order on My Way, an app that allows you to order your food ahead and have it ready when you arrive. Hours of food truck operation is Monday – Saturday, 11 am to 10 pm. 71st and Sheridan, 918.568.5738.
