Delgado’s Eatery Place

Taco trucks make a wait at the Maryland DMV seem like not such a bad thing.

From April 2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

Tacos at the DMV: Delgado's Eatery Place and El Trucko (both parked outside the Motor Vehicle Administration, off Clopper Rd., Gaithersburg). Tongue and cheek are our two favorite tacos at Delgado's, a taqueria on wheels. Here the pillow-soft, well-seasoned meat is piled high on a double layer of corn tortillas and generously topped with fresh, chunky guacamole, mild salsa, and sprigs of cilantro. Chicken and steak round out the choices among Tarsis and Nicolasa Delgado's $2 tacos. Overstuffed burritos–black beans and rice, with or without meat–are $4. A few lawn chairs offer the only seating, so wait for nice weather or get lunch to go.
