About Firehouse Tacos
Best Tacos In Houston. Started by a retired Firefighter. Smoking Hot Tacos
FIREHOUSE TACOS was founded by retired Houston Fire Department firefighter, Captain Homero Ponce-López. Recruited at the age of 21 while attending the University of Houston-Downtown, the Captain found his life's calling and for the next 31 years dedicated his heart to helping others.
Upon his retirement in early 2011, although the Captain did dream about sitting on the beach in South Padre Island sipping on a cold margaritas, he felt the greater need continue helping his fellow firefighters. As any firefighter can tell you, after a career of duty there are many memories and great lifelong friendships you just don't want to walk away from.
And so was born FIREHOUSE TACOS as a rapid response food truck to feed our hungry heroes when major disasters strike. Our custom designed "food truck" will be serving a culinary delight of the Captain's classic tacos and spicy salsas, reminiscent of his passion for backyard fajita cookouts along the bayou.
*Partial proceeds will be given to charities and foundations supporting our Heroes and we look foward to participating in community events.
