Hecho En Iowa-A Search for the Best Hometown Tacos: Locale 23, Knoxville

It’s not all Sprint Cars in Knoxville. Casa Grande is rounding the corner in The Iowa Gallivant’s race for the best tacos in Iowa! 110 East Main Street

Knoxville, IA: Marion County (Our 36th County!)

Here we go again! Team Goodvin is on another road trip and another great Iowa town lured us in  for another great round of tacos! Knoxville has a thriving town square that offers some great eats, but we needed another fix from south of the border to get this taco tour back to full throttle.


Casa Grande served up a team Pork al Pastor tacos that landed right in the lineup of contenders for what could be a very close race for a champion. A few squirts from the fresh limes and this trifecta of spicy pork rolled up in soft corn tortillas was successfully devoured. Good luck, Knoxville…..Welcome to the 2016 Taco Tour!
