Being a part of such a wonderful community is a gift we don’t take for granted. We have been a part of it for many years now, and we have loved every minute of it.
Many people and businesses contribute to that, and we wouldn’t have this amazing neighborhood if it weren’t for everyone’s individual efforts.
Our Love for Local spotlight is here to show just how incredible our neighbors are. Taco Mania is a new kid on the block but already a staple in our routine because we simply can’t resist such delicious tacos.
Supporting local businesses gives back to the community and the people who live here instead of just supporting CEOs of large corporations. And, in most cases, the food is way better as well.
If you haven’t been to TacoMania yet, here’s your sign.
History of Taco Mania
Although not very old, their experience with tacos is evident. It’s only been open since May, and they are already the talk of the town—or at least our office.
This little taco shop would be easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it. It is a hidden gem! It was originally a food truck, but they recently opened a physical store. The menu is fairly simple, which helps ensure high quality for everything they make.
Despite being a small menu, the dishes are packed with complex and full-bodied flavors.
If it’s your first time going, there are a couple of items that we highly recommend.
Nacho cheese—It may seem weird to recommend a topping as a menu highlight, but it’s that good. It comes on chips as a side to your tacos or as part of their incredible nachos.
Tacos (of course)—The fresh tortillas and the authentic flavors are what this place is all about. Choose your meat and how many you want, and you’ll be transported south of the border in the blink of an eye.
Big Burritos—If tacos are too messy for you, try a burrito. Choose your meat, and it’ll be mixed with their unique blend of flavors, plus rice and beans, all wrapped up in a beautiful, easy-to-eat burrito shape.
This place can get busy sometimes, so it’s nice to know that the staff is attentive and more-than friendly. Getting correct orders, proper timing, and ensuring the food is hot takes skill and pride, and this place has both.
Take-out is available and served promptly. The attention to detail is why this place made such a splash early in its existence.
Where to Find Them
They used to be harder to find as a food truck, but now they have a permanent location, so you never have to be that far away from a delicious taco.
Conveniently located right across from the Wal-Mart in Riverton, it’s close to the freeway.
You can get a sneak peek at the menu and the exact location on their Facebook page here and also information on their food truck—which roams the neighborhood every now and then.
