From: A Texan Reader [Email him]

I once lived in Teague, Texas (pop under 5000), about 25 minutes east of a bigger town called Mexia.

My black yardman warned me not to buy anything from the taco trucks in Mexia. He told me that the Mexican operator would catch stray dogs, butcher them & use the meat for his tacos.

I NEVER buy from mobile taco stands.

Then there's this:

To be clear, this kind of thing is illegal in Mexico (see the police Twitter below) and not appreciated by the customers. People in Tijuana were staying away from Chinese restaurants in droves. But the reader is right to be wary of random street food provided by random Mexican illegals. It's really not safe.
