"I thought it was amazing I actually saw it on my social media," said Karla de Leon
His son Jordi was taking the orders while he was getting the grill sizzling on this Taco Tuesday.
It was just days ago Aviles' daughter posted a plea on Twitter. She said her dad's business was struggling and had only sold $6 worth of food.
Hey Twitter!! I wouldn’t normally do this, but my dad’s taco truck business is struggling, he only sold $6 today. If you could retweet, I would appreciate you so much!! 💕— Giselle (@Liamchampaynee) September 12, 2020

It didn't take long for the power of social media to shine the spotlight on this local business off FM 1960.
"Tacos and Jeeps today," said Chris "Bigg Dogg" Comeaux.
The Houston Jeep society showed up to buy him out for the night.
"A lot of biz have been hurting but hopefully they can bounce back," said Comeaux.
"I definitely enjoy supporting local businesses especially everything we're going through right now," said De Leon.
So from tacos to tortas to quesadillas, Aviles said this is his passion, he loves to cook.
"We're really grateful for the support we've been getting and the positive messages," said his son.
Giselle has also started an Instagram page for her dad's taco truck. The truck is open Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
