Mexican food truck opens in Tea area

Aug. 24, 2018

If you’re on the highway headed west into Tea, you just might miss one of the newest food trucks in the area.

Taqueria Suyapa is parked on the south side of 271st Street in the parking lot of Auto-Net. It opened July 31 and plans to use that location as a permanent base.

The Mexican food truck is owned by Suyapa Motino and operated with the help of her husband, Jairo, and her sister, Angela Motino.

The family, who lives in Sioux Falls, immigrated to the U.S. from Honduras, and many of the recipes are from their homeland, Jairo Motino said.

The menu includes carne asada, tacos, burritos, tostadas, tortas, quesadillas, nachos supreme, steak and chicken sandwiches and baleadas, a Honduran taco made with a flour tortilla, ground beef and sour cream.

“This business place is good,” Motino said of the location. “It’s the principal road into Tea, and a lot of people come from the shop.”

Customers can take the food to go or eat at picnic tables.

“Everybody coming here is very happy” with the food, Motino said. “They like the service and the attention.”

Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Motino expects the truck to be open until winter arrives.
