I mean, it’s pretty obvious to us.  Lloyd Taco Trucks rock. Everything about them is just perfect. They’ve been serving the Queen City since 2010 and wherever they are, there’s always a line of folks waiting for a fabulous burrito!

So, when the folks at Mobile-Cuisine were picking the best taco truck of the year, of course Lloyd was in the running.

And the foodies have spoken. Lloyd is King.

After counting the over 53,000 total votes submitted in the poll the Lloyd team has pulled out the win to reclaim this title after their 2014 victory.



Here’s some information about Lloyd Taco Truck and how they got their start. 

Childhood friends, Chris Dorsaneo and Pete Cimino knew they wanted to create something big and exciting.  Neither of them had any inkling that it would be Lloyd.

While Chris studied at the University of Hawaii Kapiolani Community College receiving two Associates in Science for Culinary and Pastry Arts, his passion was ignited for food creation.  Culinary inspirations like David Chang and Jose Andres and culinary school mentors like Chefs Ernst Hiltbrand and Alan Tsuchiyama coached and molded him into the professional he is today.

Pete’s mathematics background has served him well in this partnership.  Thankfully, he realized soon that the teaching gig out of college wasn’t his thing and turned to his life of “serial entrepreneurship.”  While dabbling in several ventures, he visited Chris in Hawaii and made a point to visit Giovanni’s Original shrimp truck.  “Little did I know that this unassuming, unofficial state institution was about to change our lives! Standing in line I had much time to ponder.” The idea of waiting in line was ridiculous, but Pete was taken by the “unique social atmosphere, the one that only occurs outside a food truck.”  This experience made him feel connected to the food in a way he’d never experienced.

Years later, when Chris returned to Buffalo, food trucks had started to explode.  The timing was right and they went to work.  The concept of “Lloyd” was born.
