We were heading out of Tucson, Arizona and I asked my friends who were driving if we can stop at a Taco stand before getting on the freeway back to Phoenix.  We made a detour through a residential area and pulled into a parking lot where a food truck was parked.  Taqueria El Rapido was such a happy site for me as I did not want to leave Arizona without eating Mexican food.  I was so excited that I almost ran to the truck to place my order.  Ordered a Carne Asada Taco ($1.50) and a Pollo or Chicken Taco for ($1.25).   Also decided to get a Carne Asada Burrito ($6) for the ride.  First off the prices here are incredible for the quality of food.  Cannot believe you can get a steak taco for $1.50 anywhere in this world.  And $6 for a large burrito.  Wow....this would be $10 or more in Honolulu.
What I really liked about this taco stand is that they had a fresh salsa bar in the back of a tent that fronts the truck.  Fresh Pico de Gallo, Cilantro with Onions, Radish, Pickled Onions, Limes, Cucumber and Red and Green Salsas.  I added Pico, Cilantro/Onions, Pickled Onion and the Red Salsa.  The salsa had a nice heat level.  You could feel it but it complimented the flavor and did not burn.  The tacos were fantastic!!!!  I mean really good.  Would eat here weekly if they had a Taqueria El Rapido in Hawaii.  The fresh Pico, Cilantro/Onions, Pickled Onions and Salsa took these tacos to another level.  I added all that good stuff to my Carne Asada Burrito too and LOVED it!!!!  This is the real deal taco stand and I would highly recommend it if you are traveling through Tucson.  It is not far from the airport.
