Atomic Tacos food trailer opens a venue in the food court at Meridian Mall

OKEMOS – Atomic Tacos, a food truck that started at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and has gained a fan following serving up corn tacos in the beer garden at Horrocks Farm Market, is opening a location inside the Meridian Mall food court.

Operation Bricks and Mortar is the next step, and owners Joel McGuire, his father Jeff McGuire and their partner Matt Gabs didn’t plan to take it.

Starting small, they built the first food trailer from the ground up in the driveway of Joel McGuire’s home near Perry, and parked it at places in Corona and Oslo.

Two months later, the trailer gained a following, and this past summer, Atomic Tacos, known for California-inspired tacos and burritos that blend West Coast-style food with Asian inspiration and a host of other flavors, became a regular at Horrocks.
