The tacos were served up for lunch to highlight one of the newest additions to Emory's dining menu - sustainably grown fish.
There is no previous Guinness world record for the Longest line of tacos.
The Guinness World Record for the largest taco rice weighed 746 kg (1,644 lb 10 oz) and was made by Kincho Shokokai (Japan) at Nature Miraikan Koryu Hiroba in Kin-cho, Okinawa, Japan.
Guinness World Records recognized the largest flour taco in the world, which weighed 750 kg (1,654 lb) and was made by the city of Mexicali and Cocinex SA de CV, in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico.
Over 121 feet long, the tacos were made with tortillas, sustainable cod supplied by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, cabbage salad and salsa cruda.
The recipe was developed by campus executive chef Michael Wetli.
Tacopalooza began shortly after noon, with tortillas donated by local producer Los Amigos overlapping on a U-shaped grouping tables.
