Food Truck Fight: Taco Carrito vs. Windy City Red Hots

What's the best food truck in Washington? You tell us.

Will Taco Carrito be able to keep the magic going through Round 2? Its opponent: Windy City Red Hots, which brings Chicago dogs to the parking lot of an Ashburn nursery. And now there's a bricks-and-mortar outpost of Windy City. Bricks didn't scare Taco Carrito last week, though.
