Taqueria Victor Hugo parks on Nicollet

Hugo Balmaceda (l) and Victor Herrera, owners of the Taqueria Victor Hugo food truck.

Lines of customers are discovering the Taqueria Victor Hugo food truck, which launched last spring at the Richfield Lutheran Church parking lot at 60th & Nicollet.

“Some people come every day,” said co-owner Hugo Balmaceda. “The weekends are really busy.”

Taqueria 2Favorites include the tacos el pastor and barbacoa tortas, he said.

Balmaceda operates the food truck with Victor Herrera, and they’re planning to open a brick-and-mortar storefront on Lake Street.

Balmaceda said they prepare dishes and house-made salsas as if cooking for themselves, with a moderate amount of spice and lots of flavor.

“We make everything fresh,” he said.

The food truck operates at 8 W. 60th St. from 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday thru Wednesday, and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Thursday thru Saturday.
