Chef Dan Kardos Launches Flaco Taco Truck...$4 Menu (+ Lobster Roll)

Stephanie Webster

Chef Dan Kardos (Liberty Rock Tavern, Oar & Oak) is rolling out something new for CT taco (and lobster) lovers. Kardos has bought himself another truck, and this time we’re talking tacos. Flaco Taco is the name, and Kardos is in the process of getting it ready for the summer season. The truck will be serving up $4 tacos and some tasty sides…but wait, there’s more…there will also be an epically delicious $24 Lobster roll (ya know…just ‘cuz).

Let’s talk about them tacos. CTbites have seen a preliminary menu, and Kardos admits things may change by June, but here is the basic situation. Tacos range from Crispy Fish with spicy slaw and lime, to Southern Fried Chicken with buttermilk ranch, and Braised Beef Shank with spicy tahini. Yes please. Sides will likely include classics such as street corn, Guac’ and his famous watermelon and cucumber salad (think Liberty Rock Truck).


Kardos’ plans to primarily book Flaco Taco for private parties, but will also be touring the local CT breweries .

If you’re looking for the truck on a more permanent basis, Flaco Taco will be parked at Knapps Landing every Sunday at 520 Sniffens Lane in Stratford from 7-10 pm. They will be rocking tasty tacos to the sounds of live music, and will be taking advantage of Knapps Landing’s full service outdoor bar, which is  on the mouth of the Housatonic River (accessible by boat). Pretty cool eh?
