Richard is an architect by degree (Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan) who began his career in real estate development and architectural planning. In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.


  1. El Gastronomo Vagabundo continue to be No. 1… They led the way with their gourmet food truck arpproximately 4 years ago in the St. Catharines, Ontario Niagara Region and since their inception their popularity continues to grow with hundreds of followers. Their food is always fresh and delicious. Keep up the good work.

  2. Dia De Los Tacos is a delightful FreshMex on wheels slinging the greatest tacos to be found in the north. A fantastic small-town story of the entrepreneurial spirit and making an awesome turnaround out of a challenge in life – the Dia De Los Tacos story is more than just great tacos; it’s inspiration to dream and to do.

  4. You want to try the Best Mahi Mahi tacos ?? Then you have to stop in Nashville TN, @ Yayo’s OMG !! Chef Yayo makes the most delicious, yummy , fresh tacos i have ever tasted :) Their customer service A++ .. Real Mexican flavor in every bite !!

  5. There is probably only one food truck in the world that people will stand in line, day or night during the dead of winter in far below zero weather and that is Dia de los Tacos in Marquette, Mi!

  6. […] Honourable Mentions: Dan Ackroyd was spotted sampling shellfish at Rock Lobster; Ben Mulroney loves the tuna tacos at One; and Bar Isabel celebri-chef Grant van Gameren is moonlighting as a model for Roots. Also, St. Catherines food truck El Gastronomo Vagabondo has been nominated alongside 14 U.S. trucks for the title of 2014 Food Truck Taco of the Year. (They’re currently in 5th place—vote them up here.) […]

  7. Ok, by now, everyone knows that Pete, Christopher & Teddy (& crews) have CHANGED THE CULTURE of a ridiculously “slow-on-the-uptake” city of Buffalo! Now let’s be fair, there are maybe a few other trucks & owners who are doing nice things…….but LLOYD is so “Out of this World” you need to put a trip to the “Queen City of the Lakes,” Nickel City, Buffalo, NY on your “bucket-list,” & find one of their three (3) trucks…..where’ I rest my case!!!!

  8. Definitely Lloyd’s Taco in Buffalo. You’ve never had a burrito or taco like theirs – they have a cult following here, and for good reason. Their food is always fresh, super flavorful and just the right mix of spicy deliciousness. And they’re all really friendly. We’re lucky to have a lot of great, fresh, hand-crafted artisanal food here in Buffalo, but Lloyd’s takes the prize for mobile offerings. First Prize to Lloyd’s!

  9. A taco contest and you have ZERO trucks from the South West? YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!

    This is a farce. Trucks from Buffalo and Missouri have the lead? Nothing but a local popularity contest.

    Nobody voting here has even tasted the other trucks’ food, so they’re just voting for their own town / city / region / state.

    • Hello Capt. B.A. Obvious: It is more about community supporting local small business than anything. Of course, no one has tasted all of them. I would be willing to bet that none of us are food critics either. It is a fun way to support your local community and give these small business some free marketing, as well as promote the food truck industry. No need to be such a naysayer, it is a silly little contest for fun and to help these start ups grow.

  10. No really…What the Fork? No, I’m saying the winner should hands down be what the fork. Sriacha slaw, candy sauce…PULLED PORK…sweet potato sticks…Mouthsplosion…So good. Plus, their other stuff is super rad, as is the truck design, and the people. Best food truck in the world in my opinion.

  11. Where else would people stand out in -30 degree zero with wind chill warnings waiting for tacos and selling out the taco truck early? Only in the U.P. Go Yoopers!! Dia de Los tacos deserves this win 100%

  12. […] Brice BurgeManaging EditorDia De Los Tacos (DDLT) is a finalist in the 2014 Food Truck Taco of the Year. As of publication, DDLT was tied for first place with 895 votes, 25 percent of the total voting […]
