With so many local food trucks making waves in here, it was only a matter of time before truck owners elsewhere decided to get in on the action. Next on the scene is The Taco Truck, from a small chain of Hoboken, NJ-based trucks and shops specializing in Mexican street food.

Today, owner Jason Scott told me via email that his first truck (of, he hopes, several) will debut this Sunday in Cambridge at the intersection of Flagg Street and Memorial Drive from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. (he’s just waiting on some permit approvals before announcing his regular Boston locations).

There’s more than just trucks on the way, though. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring our concept to Boston, and are excited to share details about our brick and mortar locations soon,” Scott also teased. The menu features a slew of tacos (including one filled with deep-fried avocado), plus a variety of tortas, salads, and sides like guacamole and fried plantains.
