We near always check Marfalist to see what the Food Shark Special is and we get the Turkey Sandwich to go with the Special. The food is very good and the Truck is almost as famous as Marfa.

Nice little spot, and a very unique experience...very Marfa. Personally, I always get the Marfalafel, but they have plenty of other choices. Prices are good and the staff is friendly, just make sure they are open before you head that way. Currently, they are open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 3 in the afternoon.

We loved this funky food truck experience. We had delicious falafel lunch on break from our Chinati Foundation tour. It was cold so the seating inside of the repurposed school bus was ideal. We had the sandwiches, plates and cookies and all were delicious and filling!

No idea how this place gets good reviews, it's awful, service was extremely slow, which is fine if the food is good, the food here is sub-par at best, reviews seem strange given our experience, would not return at all

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience..you must have come during the time between X-mas and New Year's...We do 3 times the business in the same 3 hour period, only 2 people can fit on the truck. Most of the time, we are able to handle the orders in a reasonable amount of time....The food is good, I make... More

Give this a try if you are in the area. Good food and friendly, efficient staff. Everything we tried was fresh and tasty. Try the falafel. The lines get long at lunch time but they do get the orders out quick.

This is a popular spot, so expect at least a 20/30 minute wait for your food. Cute seating area and options, delicious food! There aren't many good food options in Marfa, so don't miss this one!

Fresh Mediterranean fare. The best falafel balls I have ever had! It is a food truck and there is only outside seating - unless you count a school bus :) Do not miss the chance to eat here!

Had the best falafel and my friend got the lamb kebabs. Both were great! Luckily, it was not too hot or too cold so we ate on the bus turned dining area. Don't miss while you're in Marfa!
