El Buen Sazon opened late July or early August 2011. This is a truck where a few Spanish language phrases or very good pantomime skills are needed. Some of the information on the signage is not translated correctly and in a few cases….pointing to what you want may not be 100% effective. The signage itself is very good – colorful and numbered, you could order by number with decent success. It took about 10 minutes to confirm the hours for the truck (the hours listed on the truck are not correct) and to clarify a few other menu options. The name roughly translates to “The Good One” or seasoning…..feel free to comment on this translation.

Octavio seems to be the taco slinger on site most often. He and the others working the truck are from Mexico City. The fare is standard Taco Truck cuisine – tacos, huaraches, tortas, burritos, quesadillas and soft drinks. On the weekends they serve goat (birria) stew and menudo (not the boy band). The most expensive item ($8.00) is the Torta Cubano (which is a large sandwich with the meat of your choice, sliced pineapple and a pile of other ingredients).

A Chorizo taco, quesadilla with al pastor and a huarache with goat meat were sampled. Based on these few items, the food at this truck would place in the middle of the taco truck bell curve. Since this is a new truck, expect things to continue to get better over time. Buenas Suerte Taqueria El Buen Sazon.

  2. I stopped in yesterday and had three tacos: Tripe, Tongue and Pastor,As the name implies, their seasoning is indeed very good, and the texture/taste of the tripe was just perfect. They are closed Wednesdays.

  3. I’ve been back a few times since last comment, and I always go for the Birria (weekends only), which comes with a lovely broth that I never leave behind. For the translation of the track name, I think you could poetically go with ‘well-seasoned’, or more literally, ‘the good seasoning/spice’. They do plenty of business at all times of the day, so I’m clearly not the only fan.

    My mom & I stopped at this truck last summer and I ordered a chorizo torta (with everything). Because of some language confusion we ended up with two – mom was going to order something else originally but in the end was really happy with her torta (as was I!) A couple weeks ago mom made a return visit (with dad this time). Both had tortas and enjoyed them completely.
