BC Dam Tacos serving up the best in Boulder City

November 30, 2020 By BC Dam Tacos

Nestled in an industrial section of charming Boulder City is a decked-out taco truck that has become a destination for foodies far and wide.

“It’s been amazing to see people every day who love our food,” said Rolando Medrano, owner of BC Dam Tacos. “We can’t believe how lucky we’ve been.”

It’s not just luck, it’s the generous portions and finely flavored dishes that have made BC Dam Tacos a bustling business. Word of mouth has traveled over the hill and down into the Las Vegas valley. Customers have driven as far as North Las Vegas to try the dishes at BC Dam Tacos.

“I left my dream job with the Forest Service to start this,” Medrano said. “But we have had the opportunity of meeting some many wonderful people that others wise we would have never met.”

The narrow kitchen in the food truck serves up an extensive menu filled with traditional and innovative dishes, from cheeseburgers to Mexican pizzas, enchiladas, chimichangas, mini chimichangas, taquitos and, of course, scrumptious tacos that are meticulously prepared. Each dish was created from a mix of family recipes.

BC Dam Taco fans hail the chicken and pork tacos as some of the best in the area. Medrano and his family took their time honing the flavors and texture of each dish. His wife Arcelia’s grandmother’s and mother’s traditional dishes as well as his dad’s rubs and sauces. His children, Daniel and Samantha, have helped taste, prepare, serve the dishes in this well-run family business.

“We do not eat pork, so we never even made any before opening the taco truck, and boy, has the pork taken off,” he said. “The pork is the only meat we have never changed. It was perfect from the first time. I’ll actually put up my pork against anyone.”

Medrano opened the food truck three years ago after taking a big gamble. His position with the U.S. Forest Service kept him from being with his close-knit family. As his daughter prepared for her first year in high school, he began to make his small business idea a reality.

“I did not want to miss any more time with them,” Medrano said. “The plan was for it only to be temporary and go back to the Forest Service after my daughter graduated. But we have just grown in popularity. I don’t think I could close now.”

The Medrano family is very involved with the local community, providing financial and personal assistance to local charities, such as cleaning abandoned homes and businesses with the BC Yard Squad and providing a fundraiser for the Boulder City Wrestling team.

“When I started this business, I knew I wanted to be able to help locals and have locals be my main focus,” Medrano said. “We’ve lived here 25 years and love this town.”

Numerous businesses, even those in direct competition in Boulder City, send customers to his taco truck on 708 Canyon Road.

The Medranos support all of the local restaurants they have frequented, such as Totos Mexican Restaurant and the local Roberto’s Taco Shop. Rolando Medrano and his daughter spend Sunday dining out and posting on Facebook all the treasures they find at area restaurants, such as Dillinger’s or the Coffee Cup.

“When I saw that our following began to grow on Facebook, my gut feeling was to try to bless other businesses as I was being blessed,” he said. “Even during the shutdown, I reminded people not to forget about the good people at other local businesses.”

Great people, amazing food

We first tasted their food at quantum printing open house. Then we hired them to cater our Creative Salon 3rd year anniversary. We love their food, appreciate their service and love that it's close enough to ride my bike there during lunch.
