The L.A. Times updates the taco truck crackdown story today, and I'm trying to decide if the restaurant owners who are against the trucks have any valid points.
You can vote in Eating LA's first poll by going to the sidebar on the right, under the ad for steaks.
Here's a few of the arguments pro and con -- what do you think?
Customers say "It's a convenient service."
Restaurant owners say trucks have an unfair advantage -- they can travel to where customers are and have lower overhead and therefore lower prices.
Developers say "They prevent a community from moving forward."
Perhaps the worst quote comes from a county supervisor's aide: "It just makes a community look like there's no order."
Now what does that mean, anyway? I guess I'd prefer a community with less order and taco trucks to one with lots of order and no taco trucks. But it is certainly tough to survive as a restaurant owner these days, so their side should probably be considered too.
