Having recently heard of this food truck by an acquaintance, my co-worker and I decided to try this taqueria today. I ordered a taco de chicharron, a side order of frijoles (negros), and a coke. Total came out to a little over $6. Food is very delicious, especially the beans. The downside to the tacos is that they are very... More

Worth the wit. While you... More

I had spicy pork, chicken, shrimp. All very good. The wait can be long on nice days. Will try one of the tortas next time- they looked great. Park benches to eat outside at Jackie Robinson park

I have been visiting El Charrito for nearly two years. Their location on Apache Place in Riverside (Greenwich) is by far the better choice but you can't go wrong with Tacos or Huraches from the truck. Carlos who's never without his hairnet on is a Stamford local who travels to Mexico and brings back even more authentic and amazing recipes... More

A big yellow truck. I've eaten there many times. Consistently, a high quality treat. They also have a storefront in Riverside, CT. The truck is parked next to a park, so if it's a nice day, sit at a picnic table and enjoy. The owner is obviously concerned about quality. I could go on - but just try it. I... More

It's not a perfect dining experience, but the quality of the food completely outweighs any potential drawbacks...the chef, Carlos, knows his stuff! It's all AUTHENTIC, unlike the Americanized stuff you get elsewhere, and for rock-bottom prices too. Alex and the other ladies who take orders are all very sweet, and efficient; been going at least weekly for over a year... More

El Charrito Taco Truck has been blogged about and has been seen on TV. Everything said about this wonderful Mexican food truck is true. I live in NM and have rarely had better tasting Mexican fare. The truck offers a variety of dishes from enchiladas and tacos to tortas (sandwiches) all cooked to order and very reasonably priced (cheap). The... More
