What They Offer:

Tacos El Champu offers anything mexican food related that can fit in a shell can be found at the food truck. They have a variety of street taco options (I can’t decide if I love the shrimp or asada street tacos the most), burritos as big as your face, crispy quesadillas, and a plethora of other mouth watering options. Don’t forget to grab some of their mouth-watering salsa with anything you order!

Street tacos start at just $2, quite a few other options are $8 and under, and they have specialty items like Caldo De Cameron (mexican shrimp soup) that go up to $15.

Tacos El Champu (alongside a few other food trucks) can be found in the front of the parking lot at 2348 S Campbell Ave in Springfield. This amazing food truck is the red food truck in the middle.
