This place was referred to us by the Big Bend Coffee Shop. The Combo and the Hummus Plates were simply delicious! The flavors were great---we recommend these to everyone!

Loved the Food Shark - had the wonderful daily special: Lamb Kabob with pita, sauce, greek salad and humus w/chips. They also had a pork dish special we didn't try, sounded great. Normal menu items are offered as well, I can't remember exactly what they were but I was torn between the special and the local favorite which I forget... More

I'm a bit picky about food and was a little nervous about eating here because it didn't look super clean when we arrived. It's a grungy little food truck , but as soon as our food arrived I devoured the whole thing. It was delicious. I had the veggie wrap with hummus and it had a great chilli kick. My... More

Thanks! Yes, we've had the Food Shark for over 10 years and it sort of came that way (grungy looking) ...anyway, we're working on building our new kitchen right next to the truck and it's difficult to get that old vehicle to look fresh and clean considering its origins...built in 1974 but that design came out in the 50s...ok, try...

Interesting twist on BBQ falafel and buttermilk slaw. Delicious. The drinks were bottled with cane sugar. I had the Tamarind flavor.

This restaurant is a Marfa staple. I was lucky that every time I went I didn't have to wait that long, and the food never disappointed. The watermelon agua frescas are particularly satisfying during Marfa's blazing hot summer afternoons. Also, as Marfa restaurants go this one is on the less-expensive side, though it's more costly than trucks in NYC, LA... More

This is a food truck with great seating behind. Don't be afraid to share a table with others. Every meal is made fresh. The lamb kabob was excellent. And the best part is bring your own beer! BYOB!!

At the time we went, the truck still served lunch under the outdoor pavilion. The food is so FRESH it's hard to believe it's food truck food. The pavilion area is a building now, not sure if they are taking the food inside or not. The choices change daily but the freshness always stay amazing.

This place is consistently good and usually has a surprise or two in store for you. Seating available. Good people watching. Fair prices. Great casual Greek food - lamb kabobs and falafels are regulars on the menu, as are BBQ specials. Several vegetarian options. A must if you are in Marfa.

Plan ahead, make sure you have the time (took 45 minutes today) to get your meal, because it's worth it! There are not many options in Marfa, but this is a great one. Yesterday was falafel. Today was a salad with goat cheese an hummus. Both were fantastic. Great, delicious, fresh, and reasonably priced food. BTW, my pal loved his... More

Had the salad 2x in 2 days. Not as quick as most food trucks but definitely the best casual lunch in Marfa.
