Fun

You're in Marfa, so don't go for the usual stuff. This place provides good food with fun people watching and atmosphere. If you're expecting fine dining, this definitely isn't it, and the environment is anything (and everything) but fancy, but foodies will not be disappointed by the quality.

Adam has a great thing going. He really knows how to cook. Food seems simple, but it is NOT. It is made with great skill and finesse. All from a food truck in Marfa, TX. Lamb kabob was the best I have ever had. I think that even if I could get the recipe, I couldn't pull it off, and... More

This food truck is very good, I loved everything, the atmosphere, the food (I recommend the lamb kebab, it is delicious) eat inside of the bus, if you go during summer don't go at noon it is extremely hot

Friendly staff and delicious fare! I had the platter with hummus, salad, and falafel with pita and pita chips! it was all just heavenly. The hummus was flavorful and yummy. The vinaigrette on the salad was fantastic...and the falafel....moist, extremely tasty...perfect. To top it off I had a lovely freshly made juice of watermelon, lime, mint, etc...refreshing and a perfect... More

Food shark provided a food truck to cater my wedding...everyone was raving about the marfalafel tacos and the sweet potato salad. The servers in the truck were super efficient and friendly. This place has my vote for dining in any form or fashion! Thanks food shark for everything!

The Marfalafel is amazing! I just came back from NYC where I had the chance to try several falafel sandwiches and the one I got at Food Shark last year tops them all.

If We hadn't seen reviews on this place we probably would not have stopped. It looks like a decrepit trailer on trashy property. However, the lamb kabobs were absolutely delicious. Tender, flavorful and perfectly cooked. We will definitely stop again. And who knows, maybe they'll repaint their name on the truck and pull a few weeds.

There is a reason the Food Shark food truck is the No. 1 eatin' spot in Marfa. We ordered the daily specials - lamb kabobs and the apple glazed pork tenderloin sandwich - and they were incredible. Expect about a 10-20 minute wait for your food on the weekends, but it's totally worth it. We parked our truck underneath a... More
