Chris Dickerson has given up his food truck and opened a wonderful, small restaurant serving freshly made tacos on house-made tortillas (one of only two restaurants in Florida that makes their own). The menu features 8 different tacos, Nachos, Queso, a mixed salad with his signature Fresh Thyme Vinaigrette and a bunch of sides. Each is uniquely tasty and two will make a great meal!

If you like tacos, there is no better place than Corner Taco, whose correct address is 818 Post Street in 5 Points!

If you are looking for freshly made tacos in the Riverside/5 Points neighborhood, this place is for you. They are not the best I've had in and around Jacksonville but are good enough. Don't go for decor either. I got the impression the place has a few finishing touches left to be installed (it opened a few months ago) or is simply one of those loosely finished and very casual eateries. With lots of offerings within 2-4 blocks, there are some more interesting, flavorful and better conceived dining options available. That being said, I'm not sure you'll find better or fresher tacos without going downtown or out to the beach.

Great balance of flavors that keep you coming back for more! Dijon-buttermilk chicken makes me keep coming back week to week!

We stopped in Jacksonville for the Cummer Museum but the real attraction turned out to be this bright, bustling taqueria in an up-and-coming neighbourhood. Three tacos--hummus, fish and carnitas--made an ample lunch for two, beautifully presented and spiked with lime. These are not mass-produced tacos; every bite is full of texture and flavor. Our seat at the counter gave us a prime view of the taco machine (one of only two in the state) and a chance to talk with the manager, a Jacksonville native who brings restaurant experience from Los Angeles and Latin America. He came home for the chance to work on "a blank canvas" and bring great-tasting, locally produced food to his native city. Good for Jacksonville and good for you if you pass this way.

Chris hasn't missed a beat from the truck, offering his incredible tacos in a cozy setting. I had the Dijon Fried Chicken and Carnitas tacos paired with a side of quinoa and black beans. Even though I took them to go, and was expecting the chicken to be a bit moist from being in the bag, it was still incredibly crispy and actually made me say "Holy s!@t, that's incredible". The Carnitas continue to be the best I've ever had, and the quinoa and beans were flavorful and not bland like other offerings I've had elsewhere.

Can't recommend it enough, so happy to have Corner Taco within 5 minutes of my house.
