Favorite food I had in Marfa. Delicious and large menu (if you get there closer to noon), awesome ice tea, cookies, and fattoush salad. Went back a few times.

Food was not what you'd expect from a food truck! Amazing! You'd think burgers and fries, but no. My fish tacos were gourmet.

Off to downtown Marfa!! I researched on Yelp! and Tripadvisor and found this very highly rated food truck in Marfa. Yep.... A food truck! It is called Food Shark so of course we had to try the food. I ordered the Mediterranean plate and my husband had the Tacos al pastor. Both very good. The food truck is located by... More

We ordered the falafel and it was one of the best I have had. It was a gorgeous day and perfect to sit out and enjoy the great food.

Be ready for a long wait but and it appears that they are only open on certain days but it is nonetheless a fun thing to do in Marfa. And the food is great too. Special on the day I was there was Adult Mac and Cheese and Pastoral Burrito. Both good from what I could hear.

We split a combo plate when we came across this Marfa icon. The hummus was fantastic and the sauces on the falafel - lovingly named "Marfalafel" - were delicious.

Stopped in on Halloween 2013. There were a couple of specials, pulled pork and some shrimp tacos. Both looked really good with ample helpings, but I went with the Marfalafel since I heard it was quite the staple and it was pretty dang tasty. It did take a while to get my food, but I was warned when I ordered... More

Loved our pork tenderloin sandwich - very fresh and the French bread was wonderful. Loved sitting outside and watching the locals in Marfa go about their day.
