Truck Stop
Fans of Nate's Taco Truck, a six-year fixture around Virginia Commonwealth University and farmers' markets, just got new reasons to love winter. Owner Nate Gutierrez has a new roof downtown, so weather won't be an issue for customers used to his seasonal setup. Nate's Taco Truck Stop serves take-out only at 315 N. Second St., week days from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. The breakfast menu has burritos and quesadillas; for lunch there are crave-worthy tacos, enchiladas, tamales, and spicy hot chocolate, a deal at $1 a cup. 562-1227.
