The Brute Taco Van is a commercial food van operated by Attack-a-Taco in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The Taco Van is an extended variant of the Boxville, which has been purposed for selling Tacos and other Mexican foods.

The vehicle shares many of the details from the Boxville, but incorporates a stand on the left side (with the side compartment always closed), an air conditioner that sticks out of the left wall and a single door for the driver. The name of the food truck, according to the menu list, is Attack-a-Taco. The slogan is "Kill That Hunger." The shape of a grenade is used as the logo, while the 'o' in it's name also represents a grenade. It serves these Mexican dishes:

  • Tacos/Burritos/Tortas (sandwiches). De asada (steak), Picadillo (mince meat), Carnitas (Mexican style pork), Barbacoa (Mexican barbecued lamb), Lengua (Ox tongue), Pancita (Ox belly), Buche.
  • Quesadillas.
  • Tostadas (deep fried tortillas).
  • Sodas and Juices.
  • Several optional foods, which includes Phat Chips, P's & Q's and The Nut House snacks, as well as ECola and Sprunk sodas.

The Taco Van can spawn with or without an additional roof sign displaying the company name.

Much like the Boxville, the Taco Van is a heavy rear-wheel-drive vehicle. Its engine is capable of powering it up to moderately high speeds, but acceleration suffers, likely due to its heavy weight. Poor weight distribution makes the vehicle prone to tipping over when cornering at high speeds, and due to its significant body roll and heavy weight, it is prone to oversteer as well. However, its weight can be used as an advantage when trying to ram other cars off the road. 

The vehicle is powered by a double overhead camshaft inline-4 engine, mounted with a large chrome turbocharger, laid longitudinally in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine sounds to be a low revving diesel engine with slow valve timing.

  • The default radio station for the Taco Van is East Los FM.
  • The air conditioner that sticks out of the left wall is blocking the driver's view of the rear corner mirror.
  • The player's position within the vehicle while in first person view, combined with the position of the steering wheel, makes it impossible to view the dashboard dial cluster.
  • The words "Heavy Shelling" seen on the livery follow Attack-a-Taco's subliminal theme of tacos and war-making, referring to both taco shells and massive artillery bombardment.

  • In the original version of the game, the roof windows would appear as one whole window from the inside, and four individual ones from the outside. This was fixed in the enhanced version.
