Now a brick-and-mortar restaurant, El Tapatio — the name is a Mexican colloquialism for someone from Guadalajara — reportedly began as a food truck. The takeout annex seen here still claims roadside cred, though this "truck" is going nowhere fast: The tires and headlights are only appliques, and the windshield wipers are painted on.
