Yes, it's a truck, but don't be scared. Enjoy your al pastor, al carbon, or barbacoa tacos at one of the picnic tables under the big trees out back, and don't forget the green sauce.

Fresh, fast, and portable is what you can expect from this festive corner taqueria. Don't miss the cochinita in fresh corn tortillas or the great paleta selection. Wash it all down with a frozen sangria or two.
