 Tacos Have Been Around for Long Time 

Some believe that tacos were invented between 1000 and 500 B C. Although the word ‘taco’ originated from Mexican silver miners in 18th century. At this time, tacos were used to describe thin sheets of paper wrapped in gunpowder that was used as an explosive. The miners did enjoy a more flavorsome alternative as a part of their staple diet.  

Some Tacos Can Be Expensive 

We take pride in our tacos and the affordable prices at which these are offered. However, there are some really expensive tacos too like those served in the high-end resort in Las Vegas for about $25,000.
