Marcos and Carletta Renteria are thrilled Ghetto Tacos has a building now, in addition to the food truck.

Food truck business expands to stationary restaurant

Ghetto Tacos, known for years as an award-winning food truck, is now officially open as a restaurant, too.

The Webb City Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting Wednesday, Nov. 2, for Ghetto Tacos at 536 N. East Street.

“I’m so excited for me and my family to accomplish this,” said Marcos Renteria. He recalled how he and his wife, Carletta, started selling street tacos with a little cooker under a tent. They’ve had the Ghetto Tacos food truck since 2016. 

When asked if they’ll still operate their food truck, Carletta, answered, “He will.”

The restaurant is open 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. There’s a drive-thru window. Dial (417) 438-4592 to call in orders.
