Who was that working on the Guapos Tacos truck?

Jose Garces himself made me lunch, and Dr. Oz took my order.

Who was that working on the Guapos Tacos truck?

The lunchtime crowd at LOVE Park on Thursday noticed a few guys with videocameras milling around the Guapos Tacos truck.

If you ordered, you got an idea of what was going on: Iron Chef Jose Garces was making the tacos, while Dr. Mehmet Oz was taking orders.

The women in front of me got a gentle education on the merits of the chicken or fish tacos opposed to the short rib tacos they ordered.

Of course, I ordered the fish. Garces did an acceptable job assembling the tacos and they were delicious, but they're messy by nature. A napkin in the bag would have been nice.

A producer brushed off my questions about the shoot or tell when it would air on the Dr. Oz show. I have a feeling it's part of a piece on healthful choices.
