In Oxnard, there are plenty of places to eat Mexican food, but the Taco Shop’s unique flavors set them apart. The owners were inspired by their hometown of Puebla, Mexico and a touch of Veracruz, Mexico. The Taco Shop was founded by Juan Lima and Monica Andrade, who began selling food on the streets of Oxnard. They served local businesses, including mechanic shops, insurance offices, and cell phone shops, before opening up their own location. Their goal then, just like it is now, was to offer good quality food available for on-the-go clients.
