Ah, the classic taco mobile.

Taco trucks were rolling around Los Angeles long before the foodie revolution began.

It’s a staple of the food truck craze and it never goes out of style.

That’s why we’re stoked to have Knockout Taco show us a thing or two about their gourmet grub today!

The name Knockout Taco derives from Chef Chris’ family business. They own the famous Van Nuys boxing gym, Ten Goose Boxing.

The crew “knocked us out” with all the amazing dishes.  Not so surprising since Chris has more than 20 years of cooking experience.

He even gave up his job as executive chef at Bottega Louie to start up the truck.

Take a listen to how he got his start in the biz:

Knockout Taco offers up a diverse selection of tacos.

Of course they serve traditional classics like Carne Asada, but they also get experimental with tacos like the Jalapeno Teriyaki Chicken!

Don’t expect anything less than the best from Knockout Taco. Even the tortillas are made from scratch and never store-bought.

Using only the best ingredients and recipes comes from Chris’ gourmet chef experience.  In addition to working at several high-end restaurants, he has also been a personal chef for Mark Wahlberg, Adam Sandler, and Barbara Streisand!

Sure, this all sounds delish, but what’s in it for you guys? Oh right, I almost forgot!
