    Don't agonize over the menu: beef nachos and beef quesadillas are the top prizes.

    Don't let the ratty looking truck fool you, the food is incredible and affordable. But the tamales sell super quick so go early!!

    The tostadas are awesome. Haven't been in the city for almost 2 years and I still remember them.

    Carnitas is the shit. Especially when you get them fatty bits. That's called flavor!

    Tacos arabes rock hard (pork and hot sauce on flour tortilla)!!! Afterwards, follow up with cold beer at Ipanema across the street.

    Ask for (hot) sauce, or else you'll be eating a very dry taco..like me. No good

    Dont listen to the meatpacking drunks - This truck is mediocre - not awful but not good either. Best Mex is Sunday mornings at the w14 church it's parked near.
