stopped for lunch on the way east....by the railroad tracks a block from the square...I had the pork kebab and my bride had the beef falaful. Supplemented with beer from the cooler...for me, better than the Mexican cola or green tea...but that's me. Loved the little megaphone they used to announce whose order was up.....hahahaha

When I saw the line for this food truck located under the pavilion by the railroad tracks and Highway 17 in Marfa, two questions crossed my mind. Is there a line because it's the only thing open this afternoon or is it because it's awesome food? To my delight, it was because of it's awesome food! I ordered the fatoush... More

Others inhaled the tacos and we all loved our Mexican Cokes. Located on the main drag it was great to be out of the sun and relax... More

My wife & I shared a meatball sandwich with a side salad. Very good on both cases. There was a short line & we had to wait 20 or 30 minutes. It was worth the wait.
