What is a Roach Coach? Are they in possesion of a buisiness license?

who controls these burrito wagons and whats in their food? After many people , including hispanics, became ill after buying food off these free lance taco wagons our city shut them out. They would just back in to bars and motels (tacky as hell) and plug in. They mainly targeted illegals and others working on job sites. They were everywhere! Chromed out chow wagons! I know some of these were serving some good stuff but like a retsraunt there has to be inspections for our protection, but they stay on the move.

They are a 4 wheeled vending machine, I would suppose the same people that control the food in vending machines would be responsible for inspection and licence for them.

Know what you mean. I have eaten at those roach coaches and never did get ill. My favorite was a steak burrito, boy was that good. I did not get the feeling it was dirty or anything, but yes, they do make big business at industrial parks and outside bars, etc. I am not sure they go thru the inspection that... More

The term "roach coach" is a military term and refers to the fact that food crumbs attract roaches in barracks etc, Now they have the name and they live up to it.

Those *Roach Coaches* should be inspected before they are allowed to sell any food at all.

Uh, there was one incident here were the guy that was selling food from a hot dog... More

You brought up something I have not thought about...but I don't buy food from carts or wagons....

I wouldn't buy from one of them. Then, I s'pose when the illegals got sick from eating them, they hauled their butts on down to the local ER for free medical treatment.
