Taco Mexico

This truck sits at the corner of Colonel Glenn and Oak Park, in the parking lot of MyWay Auto, about a mile west of University Avenue. An extension cord snakes across the parking lot and a blue awning covers a small table. A sign above the ordering window kindly asks patrons to refrain from spitting. Tacos have to be ordered at least two at a time, but that's not an impediment. These are some of the best and, at $1.25, some of the cheapest tacos in Little Rock. Enjoy with your choice of Orange Fanta, Coke or Fresca. 7101 Colonel Glenn Rd. 501-416-7002. 11 a.m. Wed.-Sun.

Taqueria Lourdes

The Chevy Step Van in the parking lot of City Market on Colonel Glenn at 36th Street may not have a sign yet, but they have good tacos. The window is plastered with handmade announcements — a 1993 mobile home for sale, a religious revival — so it takes a minute to figure out the offerings. In addition to the usual tacos and tortas, they also offer quesadillas and nachos, coffee and hot chocolate. Definitely worth trying. Seating available. Colonel Glenn Rd. and 36th St. 501-612-2120. 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.–Sat.

Taqueria Jalisco San Juan

Jalisco San Juan is the taco truck for the not-so-adventurous crowd. The sparkling clean, late-model truck sits just west of I-430 on Markham, in the parking lot of Colonial Wine and Spirits. They claim to serve "original Mexico City tacos," but it's their chicken tamales that make it worth a visit. They also have tortas, quesadillas and fajitas. 11200 Markham St. 501-541-5533. 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.–Wed., 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Thu.–Sun.

Luncheria Mexicana Alicia

The ever-elusive "Walmart taco truck." Several months back, word spread about "the best taco truck in town," rumored to be found in the parking lot of the Walmart on Bowman and Markham in West Little Rock. It took a month to finally find it, in which time its reputation only grew. Maybe not the best taco truck ever but definitely the best in West Little Rock, and definitely a better choice than the Taco Bell next door. It's a good lunch spot for your all-day West Little Rock shopping excursions. If you want to eat there, they'll pull a couple of chairs under the trees beside the taco truck. 620 S. Bowman. 501-612-1883. 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Mon.–Sat.

Mystery Taco Truck

An old Toyota pickup with a too-large camper shell sits in the parking lot of the U-Pull-It salvage yard on Baseline Road, half a mile west of I-30. The words "hamburguers & tacos" and a brief menu are painted on the side, but no hours are listed and it never seems to be open. The front tire of the truck has been flat for weeks, at least—not a good sign. But if you ever find it open, give it a try and let us know what you think. 10312 Baseline Rd.

The report focuses on the business activities of the Koch brothers — more famous for hundreds of millions in political spending aimed at slashing government services, regulation and taxes — in twelve states, including Arkansas. From the report: "The Kochs' extreme, self-serving agenda is bad for working families. And that reality is starkly embodied not only by their political persuasions, but by their business endeavors."
