“Street tacos imply the existence of stroad tacos”

Mexican street food (such as “street tacos”) is usually cheap and authentic. An American joke is the “stroad taco.”

“The term ‘street tacos’ implies the existence of off-road tacos” is a similar saying.
 
   
Wikipedia: Antojito
Mexican street food, called antojitos (literally “little cravings”), is prepared by street vendors and at small traditional markets in Mexico. Street foods include tacos, tamales, gorditas, quesadillas, empalmes, tostadas, chalupa, elote, tlayudas, cemita, pambazo, empanada, nachos, chilaquiles, fajita tortas, even hamburgers and hot dogs, as well as fresh fruits, vegetables, beverages and soups such as menudo, pozole and pancita.
 
Wikipedia: Stroad
A stroad is a type of street road hybrid. Everywhere in the United States and Canada, stroads are wide arterials (like a road) that often provide access to strip malls, drive-throughs, and other automobile-oriented businesses (like a street).
