Stephen “Taco Steve” Powell, his taco cart, and downtown New Albany.


Meet Taco Steve of Powell’s Pigs & Cows.

You may know him as Stephen Powell, formerly of NABC, and now a taco entrepreneur in downtown New Albany.

This is Stephen’s Taco Cart, which he’s setting up on the corner by Hugh E. Bir’s on Fridays and Saturdays starting at 6 p.m., past midnight — or until he runs out of food.

Stephen gets his smoked pork and chicken from Shawn Pitts, operator of Shawn’s Southern BBQ on State Street.

The tacos look like this …

 … and Ed Needham is a satisfied customer.

On Tuesdays through the favorable weather season, Stephen will be setting up by Comfy Cow on Market Street between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Credit and debit cards are accepted, and he’s been known to produce vegetarian black bean tacos.

Most of you know Stephen from his decades of bar service, so now you can visit him for all your taco needs.
