Mellizoz Tacos, the longtime taco truck in Bouldin, is moving from its base on 1503 South 1st Street. The Bouldin truck isn’t relocating that far, though. It’ll be found just a block north of its current home to 1311 South 1st Street sometime Tuesday, January 15, bear the same breakfast and otherwise tacos, plus tortas, queso, and fries.

The relocation is due to the fact that the South First landlord gave the Mellizoz a 30-day notice to move just before Christmas, according to co-owner Jessica Galindo Winters. It was tricky finding a new address because of the larger size of the truck (42 feet), but she and co-owner Adam Winters managed.

Mellizoz had been parked at the original South First address for the past ten years when it was originally known as Izzoz Tacos. The name had to change to Mellizoz because of a trademark infringement lawsuit from Izzo’s Illegal Burrito, which doesn’t run any Austin restaurants. The Winters also opened a Mexican restaurant, Cruzteca, down in Sunset Valley last spring.
