      Marquette tacos vie for nationwide award

      The Dia de los Tacos food truck in Marquette is in line to win some national prestige with a new contest.

      The truck is owned and operated by Mike Walker, who's been serving up Mexican cuisine in the Marquette area for just over a year now. The food truck is competing with other taco trucks across the country for the title of 2014 Food Truck Taco of the Year.

      The contest is put on by a website called Mobile Cuisine. Right now, they're in third place with more than 1,700 votes.

      "We really want to bring Marquette sort of into the limelight and I think it would be really fun to be able to say that the best taco in the country comes from Marquette, Michigan, and it's really all about that we just want to get the word out there, let people know that good food can come from a small town," said Jaquelyn Lambert of Dia de los Tacos.

      The taco truck can be found around the City of Marquette during lunch hours and on weekends they set up inside the Ore Dock Brewery. We've created a link to the voting page here.
