Topping the list is La Pinata Taqueria. Usually located at 809 Broadway St., it's the highest rated food truck in Vallejo, boasting a perfect five stars out of 80 reviews on Yelp.

Yelpers love the suadero (beef) and al pastor tacos best, but you can also get the truck's meats in a quesadilla, torta, burrito or on nachos. At just $1.50 per taco, even the heartiest appetites won't put a dent in your wallet -- but bring cash, because like the other trucks on this list, it doesn't accept cards.
