Basin Bites: Birria tacos highlight Joey’s Food Truck


ODESSA, Texas (YourBasin) – Do you like birria tacos? Then you need to stop at Joey’s Food Truck.

Joey’s Food Truck owner Melissa Licon says she started cooking back in 2013 with her brother Joey. The dynamic duo would put on fundraisers for their church, Power and Authority of Jesus Christ.

“My brother was also a big part of it. Him and his wife would always help sell plates,” said Licon. “So that’s how this all started.”

Licon said that her brother passed away last year and has kept the food truck open in honor of him.

“That’s what keeps me motivated is him,” said Licon.

Joining me this week is Marco Ramirez. Today’s menu includes birria tacos with rice and beans and birria nachos. Licon says their popularity comes from the birria tacos.

Joey’s is located at the corner of 8th and West County Road in the Texas Tires parking lot.
