WHAT YOU'RE EATING: Tacos and nachos. Cruz specializes in street-style tacos, served open-faced with all the fillings. Their nachos come loaded but are just as good with just the house queso or salsa.
WHO'S MAKING YOUR FOOD: Three people do the cooking here: husband and wife duo Sandra and Victor Cruz, and Solomon Martin. The Cruzes have lived here for the past six years, while Martin is a lifelong Missoulian.
BESTSELLER: A three-way tie between the loaded nachos, carnitas and huevos rancheros.
PRO TIP: If you have dietary restrictions, Cruz Tacos has you covered. They cater to celiacs, and even have what Martin described as a "secret vegan menu."

PRICE RANGE: $2–$8
WHERE TO FIND IT: The Cruz Taco truck can be found at Western Cider on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays. On Saturdays they park by the Montana Building on East Broadway.
WORD ON THE STREET: Cruz Tacos has been around for just over two months, but that's not to say they haven't been busy. The mostly family-run eatery regularly experiments with new items and flavors. (When the Indy visited one Sunday, the special was carnitas tacos with Flathead cherry salsa.) Next up? Tamales.
