Another beloved food truck has opened a brick and mortar restaurant in American Fork and it’s the perfect upgrade for the ultimate taco race. Costco’s Smoked Taco, 933 W 500 N Ste 102, is the only restaurant of its kind and they already have die-hard fans.
The makers of The Smoked Taco claim that their tacos combine flavors you’ve never tasted together before. After trying four of their most popular tacos, we’d be fine.
The Money Muscle Taco has smoked pulled pork, Teriyaki sauce, fresh coleslaw topped with candied Fresno peppers and cilantro. “It was my favorite. There was an Asian vibe with a little warmth, ”said Sally Francom. “The coleslaw with pork and chili peppers was delicious and interesting.”
The California Fleeing Taco with smoked tri-tip, roasted corn and cotija cheese was my favorite. There was a nice mix of smoky and salty in every bite. Each taco comes wrapped in fresh tortillas, but the contents of the taco still managed to overwhelm us and the table.
We also ordered The Gringo, a brisket taco with candied jalapeños, the spiciest taco on our table. Heat seekers will be in heaven, but the rest of us will need a drink close at hand. The Smoking Pastor taco was an intriguing combination of smoked pulled pork and chimichurri sauce.
Le Taco Fumé is open on site, take out and curbside from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday and closed on Sunday. The price of the tacos ranges from $ 4.25 to $ 5 with the Tuesday Taco specials when some tacos are $ 3 each.
Besides tacos, they have nachos, loaded fries, and churro fries. The restaurant has a fun and colorful vibe with friendly staff, even during lunchtime on Tuesday Taco.
