Short Film ‘A Taco Told in Texas’ Celebrates Undersung Hero of Austin’s Food Scene

“A Taco Told In Texas isn’t really about a taco. It’s about a guy with an eighth grade education who became a millionaire. And then he lost it all. And then he became a millionaire again. And then he lost it all. Again. And then he bought a used shipping container on Craiglist and started slinging the best tacos you’ve ever had out of it.”
