    The kimchi fries here are so important to order, they really set this place apart. Everything I've tried here has very imaginative ingredients. Super delicious stuff

    Absolutely delicious. The food has been featured on Food Network and the Travel Channel. If you're downtown around 9:30pm to 3:30am, head to 5th and Colorado for some amazing food!

    The first Mex-Korean truck in the ATX still makes the best bulgogi tacos and kimchi fries in the city. And if you get the burger, by all means get the optional fried egg.

    Chilantro'a kimchi fries are insanely delicious. The ribeye burger needs another ounce of meat as the flavor of the bulgogi got lost in the big bun.

    Tacos are heaven. If you're attending #sxsw, the line for the truck in front of ACC will be 50 deep. Go to the one in the lot across the street from the opposite corner of ACC. Maybe 12-15 peeps.

    Save the environment, lose the fork and styrofoam container and get yourself the Kimchi Fry Burrito w/ your choice of meat. Get it with an egg if you're feeling a bit crazy

    I tried the pork quesadilla and the spicy fries. It was my first time eating kimchi, and I can't believe how good it was! My mouth was on fire...but also happy.

    Order the double-layered corn tortillas filled with tender bulgogi (Korean marindaded beef) or fries smothered in spicy kimchi and cheese.

    This mobile truck serves Korean-Mexican inspired tacos, burritos, quesadillas and burgers, and zests things up with a little cilantro in nearly every dish. We suggest the Hawaiian Bulgogi Burger.

    Solid Korean inspired tacos and drunk food in the Warehouse district. Get two tacos and try both the ribeye and the pork.

    Favorite food truck in ATX. Hit this place up EVERY time here. Kimchi fries are a must. Tacos are great too. If not, grab a bowl and add an egg.

    The kimchi fries are like a cousin to chili cheese fries. The richer, better-looking cousin of chili cheese fries. If you can only decide on one thing from Chi'Lantro, this would be a good choice. Read more
