Sometimes, you never know when you're going to find a hidden jewel, a place that has some of the best food in the country. It's happened in Woodbury, as a former Taco Truck has gotten recognized as one of the best places for Tacos in the entire U.S.A.

In a story we reported back in April of 2016, El Camion of Woodbury, which used to just serve tacos out of their food truck, has now hit the big time, being named one of the best places to get tacos in the country.

El Camion's Taco Truck was parked outside what used to be known as Pete's Drive-in on Sherman Hill Road in Woodbury. As demand grew and word spread about their tacos, plus they were featured on The Food Network, and the Travel Channel, they decided to move the operation inside, and since 2015 have taken up residence just down the road from where they started with the Taco Truck.

Now, thrilllist.com has named El Camion the best taco's in Connecticut, and one of the best 50 Tacos in the entire country.

What started out as a simple food truck serving up delicious Mexican cuisine, has turned into the mother of all taco hot spots, and propelled this local eatery into the national spotlight.

El Camion offers a very simple menu: tacos, burritos, rice bowls, and quesadillas, and the best part is their just a short drive away. You can check them out at 308 Sherman Hill Road in Woodbury, Ct. I know I'm going there just so I can say, "I had one of the best tacos in America".
