Mexico Has UberTacos And We’re Full Of Envy

Earlier today, Uber’s Mexican division made an announcement that has changed. the. game.

…In Mexico. They revealed that in certain areas — Saltillo, Torreón and Monterrey — they were launching UberTACOS.

Yep. Just like UberEATS, you call an Uber and a driver delivers food to you.

Many people, like this Instagram user, was skeptical. Until a driver showed up to her door with a big brown bag full of tacos.

Once word got out, the service was a hit.

In Saltillo, there weren’t enough cars to fill the demand.

So what’s in the bag? For those in Monterrey, they got this nice little setup from La Mexicana Taqueria & Carniceria.

It comes with tacos (obviously), a bottle of water, salsa, plastic utensils (in case you eat tacos with those) and candy (that’s a nice touch, tbh).

Here’s what those tacos look like out of the bag. BTW, those are tacos de canasta (which are steamed in a basket), which is why they look nice and sweaty.

In Saltillo, they were blessed with tacos al pastor (succulent not included).

By the look on this señora’s face, it seems like the tacos were pretty good.

Although it will never replace the feeling of watching a taquero chop up meat in front of you (and preparing with a few swift moves), it sounds like a really good idea when you’re stuck at work and you’re tired of eating the same thing every day. So, someone, if not Uber, please find us a way to pay for taco delivery on our phones. Please?
