Peña said, "‘Taco Trip’ was a great way to feature some of El Paso's awesome food and culture; the episode should spark more curiosity to get the Sun City additional national exposure in the food scene.”

It’s been an exciting time for Tacoholics, which also recently won the inaugural Gateway to Texas Food Truck Throwdown in Anthony, TX on the weekend of Aug. 15-16.
