One of the first things I found out when I moved to southern Idaho years ago was that there are many fantastic Mexican food restaurants to choose from. Some of the tastiest dishes in the Magic Valley don't come out of a traditional kitchen, but instead, they are prepared in a trailer on wheels.

I got my first taste of Magic Valley tacos years ago when the company I work for had a Twin Falls restaurant cater an event. That food came out of the kitchen of La Casita, and I've been a regular there ever since. The food there is fantastic.

Whether you're passing through Boise, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, or Portland, you'll see taco trucks throughout the western United States that locals swear make the best food. Tacos are a universally-loved plate, and many Magic Valley residents have been raving about the food coming out of a trailer on Addison Avenue.

El Matador is a family-operated food truck that has been serving the Twin Falls area for years. They cater area events as well, and Yelp has El Matador listed as one of the best spots to get tacos in southern Idaho based on feedback from people who have tasted the food.

El Matador is open five days a week, and can usually be found at 2318 Addison Avenue East. For questions regarding catering, call 208-410-3219.

For those that might be visiting Nampa soon, one of the most talked about food trucks in the area is Tacos Colima. Just look for their signature red trailer and prepare to have a great meal.
