When Tim and Leanne Ulrich moved from California to Oklahoma City, OK, they sorely missed one cuisine typical in their home state – Baja-style tacos. Rather than wallow at the lack of establishments slinging this fare in their area, the pair took it upon themselves to rectify the error. They began whipping up all their Golden State favorites for friends and neighbors. Before long, their food had a cult-like following. After loved ones spent years encouraging them to go pro, they did just that with Taco Nation. Now, you’ll find Tim and Leanne rolling around the city in a converted school bus dishing up Baja-style cuisine for hungry patrons.
These are tacos made by people who love them. That enthusiasm alone translates to quality eats, and the locally-sourced ingredients used in every item don’t hurt either. These street tacos and burritos are packed with Baja flavor. From the pico de gallo to the creamy sauces to the richly seasoned cabbage, everything comes with a bold taste, the word “bland” not in Tim and Leanne’s vocabulary. Mouth watering? Then keep your eyes peeled for Taco Nation rolling through your neighborhood. Or, hey, don’t wait around for this truck to come to you. Book ‘em yourself and bring this deliciousness straight to your next event. You won’t regret it.

The tagline came first. “For the people; by the people.” Then, I thought of Taco Nation – the idea tacos are a universal language and how food brings people together.
Watching my family through the years as a child, loads of practicing with my own friends and family, and being too broke to eat out and deciding to cook at home.
My neighbor and I opened our house for people to come eat tacos and donate what they wanted for food. 100 people came. My neighbor said, “Let’s get a food truck going.”
Myself. I’ve always had a bent towards business. In fact, I graduated college with a business degree, although I’m not sure how much I am actually using from those days.
Tuesday nights at a brewery called Stonecloud here in Oklahoma City. They have the beer. We have the tacos. And it makes a great merger of food, drink, and friends.
Right now, the mahi mahi fish tacos. We love bringing some West Coast flavor to the middle of the US.
