    Just ate there last night. High quality tacos! The hot sauce is hot but not blazing. The drink lineup is still just as pictured, but next time I’ll try the horchata (not pictured). I could imagine eating there a lot. Plenty of parking.

    My daughter and I stopped in for lunch today and had a great time. It was our first experience with a taco truck, and we walked away impressed the quality of the food and the friendliness of the people who prepared it. We tried the tacos and split a torta — everything was delicious. We’ll definitely be making a return trip in the near future.

    stopped here a few saturdays ago. had two carnitas tacos mexicano. while good, they were not a good as new taco tao (shandley and karl) or taco nazo (161 and maple canyon) in abundance or overall taste/quality. this truck’s prices are a little lower than the other two mentioned above. friendly staff, covered seating, good salsas. recommended!

    This place is the BEST TACO BURRITO stand anywhere. Hands down. It kicks Chipotle ass.

    Had a few tamales here for lunch. Good stuff. Fun to put the salsa verde on the tamale rojo.

    Visited 3 times over the last 2 weeks. This place is now officially my favorite. Though I haven’t been able to make the evening trek to los guachos for their tacos pastor, the ones here rock (moist, lightly seasoned)! Added plus is the large array of self-serve grilled peppers, tomatos, carrots, onions, jalapenos, etc. A trick for gabachos regarding the jalapenos, eat ’em but work around the seeds or you’ll be sorry! Great salsas, parking, clean truck, friendly staff. I also tried the tamales rojo, awesome! They are moist with good masa flavor. I’d recommend they add a black olive for good luck (mexican tradition). Very highly recommended!

    This is the closest taco truck to my house so naturally it’s also the one I frequent the most. You can smell them grilling up the meat just driving down Morse on some days. The gentleman that works the counter is so kind and the tacos are delicious – I prefer mine with carne. I can’t wait for it to get cold out so they start serving atole.

    Excellent tacos, mediocre burritos. Takes 20 minutes when busy. Haven’t been there in a while since I moved to the east side. I’ll probably go this week.

    Just made my first visit. Tres tacos pollos. Loved ’em. Nice service, too…very forgiving of my poor Spanish.

    Just visited this week with a buddy of mine while out looking for a PA system for our block party at Lev’s Pawn Shop. Very happy to see the truck and sat down for some serious tacos.

    The Tostado ceviche was very clean and crisp. I had three tacos – pastor, carne asada, and barbacoa – and love them. Great homemade hot sauce as well. Buddy had the lenga and said they were great as well. Have to try the tamales next time I am there.

    Also have a good selection of fresh cucumbers, radishes, peppers, and other condiments to add to your plate.

    Staff was very friendly as were the locals enjoying the food with us. Great place if you love the taco truck scene.

    i’ve said it several times. i’ve been to most of the trucks on here. THIS PLACE ROCKS! Very good food, friendly service, self-service condiments, outstanding homemade salsas (rojo y verde), cool fellow diners…. it’s all good. my favorite is tacos al pastor, americano. try the tamales too!

    Just tried this truck today. Really impressed! We loved the variety of meats available, AND the way they’ve tried to make some veggie offerings. My husband raved about the lengua and chorizo. I loved the way they had veggies on the deck to add to your order. Tasty tasty YUM! This is a for sure return!

    The torta ahogada is phenomenal. Crusty bread with refried beans & carnitas drowned in a spicy red salsa served with onions. Bring your own fork and knife (the plastic ones will break) or get messy and eat with your hands. Either way this just went very high up on my list of delicious sandwiches.

    Must-have Tamales

  23. Chris

    Went there last night with the family. Great tacos! We ordered just about every meat on the menu and each one was fantastic. The service was fast, the guy behind the counter was great, the tables and chairs were clean and neat.

    Great truck! We’ll be back for sure. Right down Morse from Easton, stop by and you won’t be dissapointed.

  24. Enjoyed lunch here yesterday, had mexician tacos (pollo, al pastor, carnitas) and tamales (pollo). Yummy homemade salsas, the red is spicier than the green mind you! And a fun chile/vegetable bar to choose from. And I think we downed the horchata in under five minutes 😉

    Ventured here last night for the first time. Three thumbs up! Two of us tried the gringas– different than we expected, but delicious. Our daughter loved the taco with asada. Nice seating area. Nice people. We will be back.

    I LOVE this taco truck. I have a love for food trucks, so I had to stop by and try it. Prefer their tacos over chipotle and they’re only $1.25 per taco. I always get the chicken tacos with the cilantro and onions. Love their salsa verde too. Highly recommend!

    Closed. So sad – new truck up and running. Stopped by this past Monday. While friendly – difficult to order and the food was bland and subpar. Better upgrade their game on all facets or won’t last long.
