6. Tacos allow one ingredient to shine without rice, beans, and/or lettuce as a distraction.

8. You can eat a taco with just one hand.

9. You can have one taco as a snack or three for a meal, but there’s no such thing as a burrito appetizer.

10. Price.

You can walk up to a taco truck with a $5 bill, order three tacos with three different meats, put three different salsas on top, and leave full with change in your pocket.
