Taco Gordo is about an experience. Transcending space and time, our tacos will transport you to the streets of the Mission or Los Angeles, Austin or San Antonio, taco stands in Mexico City or Puebla, and beyond…


We are Taco Gordo. You can find us on the beautiful Church Street Marketplace, at the ArtsRiot Truck Stops, and at many other events and popups around Burlington.

The Taco.

Simple, but at the same time wonderfully complex. More than meat on a warm corn tortilla topped with onion and cilantro — the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s a marriage, a holy union of flavor.


Small and fleeting, it is gone in moments. The experience is deep, a connection to something older than us, something richer than our material world.  


Come take a journey with us. Jump in and come out on the other side a different person.
