Are the Best Tacos in Illinois at a Low Key Food Truck in the Middle of Nowhere?
If you think the best tacos in the area come from a taco truck... you might be missing out.
The Rockford area is known for quite a few things and one of them is food trucks.
Drive North, South, East or West and you'll run into a food truck somewhere. Almost every day in the Stateline you'll find a food truck fest, with a ton of those trucks specializing in tacos, but have you tried the tacos from Rapped with Smoke BBQ?
Let's be real, I wouldn't expect a fantastic taco from a BBQ truck, in fact when I heard Rapped with Smoke BBQ was making tacos I was a little confused.
But that didn't stop me from taking a bite and boy was I happy I did!
Are you ready for this? The ground beef is smoked along with all of the other meats that the food truck is dishing out.
AND SO IS THE SHELL.
Crazy right? The fun doesn't stop there, the taco is packed with that smoked ground beef on that smoky shell, and then covered in lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese... and liquid cheese. Which might've been the best surprise.
Sour cream comes on the side for those of you that want it. I was pretty glad it was separate.
Rapped with Smoke BBQ also has brisket, pulled pork and a ton of other 'regular' bbq food truck items.
