Taco Cat launches late-night taco delivery service in Minneapolis

The bike-only taco delivery services kicks off this weekend with five menu options available five days a week.

Late-night taco delivery may sound like a dream, but it's becoming a reality this weekend. Taco Cat -- a late-night, bike-only taco delivery service based in Minneapolis -- is relaunching this weekend with an expanded menu and expanded delivery days.

If it sounds too good to be true, it isn't -- that is, unless you live outside of Taco Cat's Minneapolis service area, specifically from Franklin Avenue to 40th Street and from Hennepin Avenue to Cedar Avenue. 

Launched back in May 2012, the service was originally available only on Saturday nights. A new website that went live earlier today points to an expanded menu of five options: original steak, mojo pork, chipotle chicken, grilled veggie and bánh mì. All orders include three tacos and are $8. Taco Cat accept cash and credit cards. (If you're thirsty, you can add a can of Coke to your order for a buck.) 

A short and witty FAQ on the site doesn't shed too much light on the operation -- only that it was started because "no one delivered tacos. We stepped up." The "we" in question is murky, but we did find that a trademark for the name Taco Cat was purchased in Minneapolis for food delivery service back in 2012 to Tristan Jimerson and Daniel Laeger-Hagemeister. Neither could be reached for response in time for publication.

Delivery hours are from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday, or until they sell out for the evening. Visit www.facebook.com/tacocatMN and www.tacocatmn.com for more information.
