Tacos, enchiladas and nachos what more could you ask for. Food is made to order and delicious! You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu and there are lots of choices. Reasonably priced compared to most places on Ocracoke. Don't let the "food truck" dissuade you from a great meal.

You must eat here!!! Stop in before your ferry ride or grab some grub for the beach. Either way, this place is delish and very likely some of the best Mexican food I have ever had.

You might think a food truck would be good for a quick meal, but we had a long wait (at least 20 minutes) both times we've been to Eduardo's. Food is good, but not worth the wait, especially when in the hot sun.

So first off my wife stopped bc she just wanted one taco. Turns out you can only buy 3 at a time. ....um ok strange but ok. Then as I'm waiting in the car the guy working the counter started staring at me with this psychotic thousand yard stare. That was really strange. To cap it all off were driving... More

First of all, the reader should be aware that this is a food truck. There is a small outdoor seating area with picnic tables and umbrellas but this is primarily a take-out place. This is also a cash-only establishment. Secondly, everything is made fresh when it is ordered and this takes times. Thirdly, this is an extremely popular place to... More

Has great promise. Seem to be a popular place, thus, the chefs and staff are not able to keep up with the patrons. Once day I had a great experience--good, solid food (fried fish burrito--yum!). The next I was kept waiting for a half hour longer than 15 minutes promised--and the food was soggy and unpleasant (another fried fish burrito).

This little place definitely was a nice find on Highway 12 in the village of Ocracoke. The shrimp tacos which was topped with a mango salsa was simply amazing. I would certainly go back for lunch.

There will likely be a small or medium-sized line when you stop by the taco stand. It's a popular place, and for a good reason. During our stop, I ordered one of their seafood specialties, which involved a tostada, fried clams, seaweed salad, salsa . . . oh my. It was so, so good. And priced at only $5! Hard... More

I've been coming to Ocracoke since 2002 and have tried most of the local eateries. I'd been curious about this one, so this year we tried a couple of burritos: grilled fish and oysters. The order was supposed to take 10-15 minutes; it took at least 30. One was hot, one was warm, both were mushy. The guy who took... More
