One of my favorite food trucks around town has a second mobile unit that sits at the northeast corner of Oliver and Lincoln on the weekends. Ricos Tacos El Torito which you can find on Broadway has a second truck with a limited menu consisting of tacos, tortas and burritos.
815 S Oliver
Wichita, KS 67218
Friday – Sunday: 4pm – 10:30pm
Closed Monday – Thursday
Keep in mind when talking to them, the girl working the truck didn’t seem to believable when I asked the location of the truck and hours so if you happen to be around I hope they are there.
The meat options at the second truck also miss such choices as buche or birria but have asada, al pastor, lengua, tripa, cabeza, and barbacoa.
On my visit, I ordered an assortment of different meat options ranging from tripa, cabeza, lengua and al pastor. I have never previously been to this second truck but recently stopped by their original truck a couple weeks ago so it was a pretty close time frame to compare the two. The difference? Not really noticeable.
The cabeza and al pastor were my favorite of the four meats I tried. The tacos were served with dual layered tortillas, cilantro, onions and some very flavorful meat. Ricos Tacos El Torito #2 has the same salsas supplied as the original truck and the orange-colored sauce has a spicy kick that doesn’t hit you for about a couple of minutes. When it does…..wow!
For street taco truck fans, this is just another fantastic option around town. If you can find it driving around the south side of town, it’s worth the stop. If push comes to shove and you can’t find it, just go to their original one at 1935 N Broadway St.
You can follow their original truck on Facebook which sometimes post the location of their second truck.
