Detroit: Taco Mama Food Truck Hits the Street in Ferndale


Ferndale’s newest food truck, Taco Mama, debuted this week with a menu that features Mexican flavors in fusion forms.

“I’m really trying to branch out and do something different than the average taco truck,” says owner Kerry Hubbard, a caterer who lives in Pleasant Ridge. The lineup changes weekly and runs from Mexican jambalaya and slider burgers to tacos, quesadillas and empanadas. Nothing costs more than $5.

Her yellow truck usually parks at Woodward and Withington, near Boogie Fever, on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., but she took today off to prepare for Saturday, when she will be in the Hertz rental lot on Woodward, next to Vogue Vintage, 11 a.m.-9 p.m..

Hubbard uses Twitter to announce her menu and schedule. She tweets at @tacomamadetroit. Her Web site is
