The KC tacos I've driven 200 miles in the middle of the night to get | Kansas City Magazine

Even though I now live in Springfield, two hundred miles from Kansas City, there are times I'll still make the midnight drive back to the Northland. My destination: the drive-thru at In-A-Tub, where I can get five deep-fried tacos with mild sauce, a Pepsi and a side of extra cheese to devour in the comfort of my front seat.

If you drive 200 miles in the middle of the night for a taco you have some really serious mental health issues.

I did notice it wasn't on the list of hipster taco joints in the article you published a couple of days ago. As nearby neighbor, I can indulge in their greasy goodness any time.

...been a Northlander 60+ years, never did understand the fascination for those In-A-Tub tacos, "the powdered cheese makes me sneeze". Claycomo is the Taco Capital of The Midwest, thanks to El Sombrero...See ya'

"Beeman has to buy five thousand pounds at a time for a whopping $23,000 due to the cheese’s scarcity."


Yet I buy it 2.5lbs at a time of orange powdered cheese off Amazon all the time and it's never sold out. Great on popcorn, baked potatoes and taco salads.

Damn stupid story and 9:03 is dead on the money.

No offense to those that like in a tub but for me those are the nastiest, greasiest things I’ve ever attempted to eat, definitely not my thing.

One time In a Tub tacos and I made contact, my contact with my commode went on for days.
