People love our Grass-Fed Beef tacos. We get our beef from a local farmer in Douds, IA and you can definitely taste the difference. Its available in two styles: Barbacoa (slow cooked and shredded) and Carne Molida (ground beef) for some variety. We also use their steaks in our Hawaiian Plate Lunch special on Fridays sometimes. We offer vegan options as well!

Our Story;

We’re fairly new to the scene as we opened last November, but so far it’s been an auspicious beginning! I (Emily) am a big fan of regional Mexican cuisine, and over the course of my career I had been developing a menu that would celebrate the artisan street food that I adore. When COVID happened, there seemed to be a need for affordable, high-quality fare that could be accessed in a quick, contact-free environment- so Taco Dreams must have been in the stars!

We’re devoted to elevating working peoples food and having a ton of fun nourishing our community. All the maize tortillas for the tacos are handmade every morning with non-GMO heirloom corn from Oaxaca, and we try and source the rest of our ingredients as local and as organic as possible. We run specials all the time, like a Hawai’ian Plate Lunch every ‘Aloha Friday,’ as well as Tamales and our ‘Maid-Rite’ Tacos (‘The Muscatine’). We’re endeavoring to have something that everyone can feel the love with- from the hardcore foodies to vegans to families just wanting a quick and healthy meal that everyone can agree on!
