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

The weather was marvelous so we didn't mind the long wait and time to chill in the school bus after a decent 5 mile hike that morning. The falafel was solid -- but the atmosphere in the parking lot was the thing. It was fun to hang out and meet other visitors to Marfa as we gaze around the main... More

The food shark is cool in a way that most places will never understand. The place is like a cool junkyard with great food. A random assortment of 60's and 70's cars with 'food shark' painted on the side, an old food truck, some tables and chairs and an old school bus converted into a 'dining car' is what you'll... More

Tacos & coke on gravel with dusty tables. Very nice guys. Food was good. At least there is a place open for lunch - surprisingly hard to find a place to eat lunch in Marfa. Definitely not the best place to eat in Marfa.
