Luchadores Taqueria Bursts Onto the Street Food Scene

The battle for the hearts of North Dakota street food enthusiasts is on and and another contender has entered the ring. Luchadores Taqueria — named for the fiercely beloved and fabulously masked Mexican wrestlers — is on the scene.


Fargo’s newest food truck (okay, technically, it’s a food trailer, but who’s counting?) features appetizers, tacos, tortas, quesadillas, desserts and a signature campion dog for lunch and for the late night crowd.

They’re located at 124 8th Street North, behind the High Plains Reader brownstone, a quiet location with some outdoor seating and plenty of grassy space for an impromptu taco picnic.

Luchadores Taqueria is the brainchild of partners High Plains Reader wunderkind and former Taco Bros. bro Raul Gomez and Steve Heiland, formally of Fargo’s dearly departed Green Market.

They’re newer than new — founded July 6 — so I haven’t gotten a chance to try them yet (Baby Eli had other plans for me today) so I’m counting on all of you to tell me what I should try first.

The Downtown Fargo Street Fair is this weekend, so it would be a great time to check them out.

Follow me on Facebook if you haven’t already and let me know if you make it out this weekend — it’s going to be a banner weekend for Street Food in Fargo.

    1. They’re about a block west of the Sons of Norway building or about two blocks west of the courthouse if that helps! They’re kind of tucked up behind the big brownstone on the corner.

  1. Is there a food truck festival at the ND horse park this weekend? I thought I saw something in my program about it when I was at the races.
