Mexican migrants initially brought tacos to America when they came to find work on railroad construction in the southern states.
In the early 1900s, the Mexican taco carts lined Los Angeles, with the women running them called chili queens.
At the time though, most Americans considered tacos a lower-class street food.
But today, tacos are one of the most universally loved foods, by poor and rich alike.

With the creation of “Taco Bell” in 1962, and the taco already a well-established Mexican food, Taco Bell brought it to the mainstream by building a franchise to sell these tacos countrywide.
And because of that, authentic Mexican taco street vendors couldn’t keep up with the pace of tacos cooked by Taco Bell and other fast-food joints.
As we often see with fast food, taste and quality are given up in favor of convenience.
