FIREHOUSE TACOS was founded by retired Houston Fire Department firefighter, Captain Homero Ponce-López. Recruited at the age of 21while attending the University of Houston-Downtown, the Captain found his life’s calling and for the next 31 years dedicated his heart to helping others.
Upon his retirement in early 2011, As any firefighter can tell you, after a career of duty there are many memories and great lifelong friendships you just don’t want to walk away from.
And as a result, FIREHOUSE TACOS was born, a rapid response food truck to feed our hungry citizens when hunger strikes. Our custom designed “food truck” will be serving a culinary delight of the Captain’s classic and specialty tacos, reminiscent of his cooking at Fire Station 23 back in the early 80s and of his backyard fajita cookouts
