New county eatery comes from a truck

Austin Ebaben and Todd Palic, both of Marion, enjoy some hot food from Taco's Food Truck. Laura Fowler Paulus/Free PressTaco’s Food Truck has become a popular destination for hungry citizens of Marion County. While some stumble upon it when they drive by and decide to try it out, others check on Facebook for times and locations of the truck.

The family owned business features California style street tacos and chef inspired favorites. The owners, Josh and Alison Tajchman, use fresh ingredients made from scratch.

Chef Josh uses the skills he picked up while getting culinary training in California. The family is originally from Marion, but they lived in California for years. They moved back to Kansas and currently live in Olathe. But they are finishing up the school year and then heading back to Marion.

“We are fixing up an old house and getting it ready to move into. So we are here most weekends,” said Alison. “We are ready to be involved in the Marion County community.”

The couple have done a number of events over the last few months and plan to do more. They were recently located near the Marion Aquatic Center on Saturday which worked out well for families who came to Marion for tournament play for Marion Rec basketball. And it wasn’t just local people who were there. Residents of Hillsboro and other towns came to Marion to have some of the Tajchman’s cuisine.

“Josh and I just want to thank Marion County for the overwhelming and continuing support. We look forward to continue to work with other small businesses and bring fun events and attractions to Marion County,” said Alison.

The family will have more regular hours once they move back. In the meantime, you can find information on their Facebook page at
