Our Story

We Started our humble beginnings working out of a converted 1977 Millard Caravan Purchased on the Sunshine Coast in 2016.
While fixing up the van and painting a mural on the sides, we developed our flavours based on my travels through California and recent honeymoon trip to Hawaii where my wife and found our new love for Mahi Mahi fish tacos.
Our desire to emulate that southern California style Mexican with Authentic spices, flavours and marinades coupled with the best locally sourced produce from South East Queensland helped form the diverse seasonally evolving menu that we have today.

We aim to use as much locally sourced produce, meats, spices, chillies, herbs, and even our tortillas are made fresh everyday at Diego’s tortilla factory right here in Burleigh heads on the Gold Coast.

We have realised the importance of having vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options on our menu and have a range of choices to cater for all dietary requirements.

After operating out of the caravan at hundreds of markets, music events, council events, Beachside festivals, golf days, film festivals, corporate functions and private functions over the past 2 years, evolving our menu and listening to our customers, we have decided to evolve Socal Tacos into having a fixed location as well as having SoCal Mobile 2.0.

SoCal Tacos 2.0 is a 1966 Bedford Van that has now been converted into a fully operational Mobile Food Truck and is available for hire privately, we can also be available for major events and you will no doubt see us floating around the Gold Coast and Brisbane from the Commonwealth games in early April .This truck has all the bells and whistles as well as maintaining the original old school Food Truck Character.

You can find SoCal Tacos Mobile at various locations around the Gold Coast and follow us on Facebook or Instagram for regular location updates.

SoCal Tacos new fixed Location will be opening soon @ 13/9 Beach rd, Surfers Paradise
and will be ready to serve Tacos , Nachos, Quesadillas and Burritos from the kick off of the Commonwealth games in Early April.
