This taco truck tour is must-try for Columbus foodies

What’s better than one taco food truck?

How about six taco food trucks.

Columbus Food Adventures just began holding many of their local food tours last month following a lengthy COVID-related hiatus, and they’re currently offering a guided tour of the taco food trucks you need to try.


While the stops on the tour are a trade secret, Columbus Food Adventures owner Bethia Wolf does divulge that many different styles and regions of Mexican street food are represented along the way, so you’re able to try a little bit of everything.

“There’s one that makes carnitas, another that does seafood, and even an Oaxacan place,” Wolf said. “It really is a cross-section of the best Mexican food trucks you’re going to find here.”

Held every Sunday, the event is guided by a Columbus food expert, who discusses the background of each truck and shares information about the style of food they offer. It’s also one of the company’s cornerstone tours, and has been held since 2010.

Due to COVID, the format of the tours has been adjusted from how it was offered in the past. Instead of a van taking everyone to each stop together, the tour is now self-driving, meaning participants need simply to follow their tour guide caravan-style in their own vehicles.

Luckily for foodies across Franklin County, with the city opening back up, Columbus Food Adventures will begin offering even more of these fun, informative, and crazy-delicious events. Currently, their walking food tours of neighborhoods like Dublin, German Village, Grandview, Short North and more are up and running. Their van-based tours–focusing on everything from brunch, to international food, to the best spots for Columbus meat-lovers–will begin again early this fall.

To reserve your own spot on one of their many mouth-watering local food tours, purchase your tickets here.

Make sure to plan ahead, though. Just like some of the expertly-prepared carnitas tacos you’ll find along the tour, tickets regularly sell out fast.
