A couple of weeks back, the original Texas taco journalist, Armando Rayo stopped by the Standard studios.

Rayo’s the author of the forthcoming book “The Tacos of Texas.” We asked him to take us on a little tour of tacos across Texas, checking out the different regional tacos of Texas But we barely scratched the hard shell. Their first conversation focused on South Texas and San Antonio, but Rayo had a strong feeling about where this next leg of the taco tour should begin.

Rayo says the journey picks up in Houston.

“Their style is tacos on wheels,” he says. “So whether you go to downtown – you’re going to go hear live music – you’re going to see a taco truck. You go to the East End, you’re going to see a taco truck. You go to the game, you’re going to see taco trucks.”

What you’ll hear in this segment:

– Who’s the most improved taco city?

– More about the taco de trompo

– What other cities are on Rayo’s taco road trip
