During Sunday's Rams-Patriots game, Teddy's Red Taco Truck is getting a chance to showcase its delicious food.
"At first, I was kind of skeptical. I was like maybe they're trying to sell me something. Maybe this is a scam. But once we made the phone call and everything was real it was like wow this is happening, this is pretty amazing," owner Teddy Vazquez said.
On Sunday, ESPN Deportes is featuring Rams super fan Teddy Vazquez and his successful business in a Super Bowl commercial. They filmed it at his roadside pop-up restaurant.
It's located off the beaten path along unused train tracks, but fans declare it home of the best tacos in Los Angeles.
"You could go to Tijuana and try them and they're exactly like this," one man said.
With tender meat on a tortilla drenched in a tomato-based sauce, the piping hot tacos are as authentic as they come. Even celebrity Chrissy Teigen is a fan of the red and spicy tacos.
Vazquez learned how to cook in Tijuana, and when he got back to L.A., he started driving for Uber and giving away his tacos.
"I had a pot in the trunk of my car and I would give people samples because I was excited and I wanted people to give me their feedback," Vazquez said.

Teddy now has three locations - and fans can't get enough. Chris Vera, who first came here a year ago, said he loves the food.
"I've been craving it for the whole year, and we finally found it," he said.
Teddy's come a long way in just three years. Imagine what'll happen after Sunday.
"I consider myself a dreamer, an achiever. If you want something bad enough you go and work for it," he said.
