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.

I ate here for lunch on a Saturday and it was delicious! Some of the portions are large. I wanted the lamb platter, but they ran out, as I was there during the Marfa Film fest and got there for a late lunch. I had a delicious Falafel burrito and I'm salivating about it as I type up this review.

So first and foremost, before I get lost in detail, the food here is pretty darn good. And worth the visit. Funky as get out. And it may be the best food in Marfa... Because it might be all that's open when you are looking. I don't really get the ad nauseum reviews of this location proclaiming it the best... More

The Food Shark is no ordinary food truck! At a taco dinner, Katy served not only delicious chicken and shredded brisket tacos, but also amazing falafel tacos with tzatziki sauce and great salsas!

I couldn't imagine visiting Marfa and not going here. (Not sure there's even another option haha.) It was so authentic and delicious. We went in the middle of the afternoon and had a fantastic lunch.

While the Food Shark doesn't look like much, it sure does serve up tasty food. I ordered the lamb kabob with tzatziki, and an order of falafel and hummus. Both were very good. Things to remember: 1. Bring cash. 2. Expect a certain degree of disinterest. 3. Listen for your name as they yell it from the truck. 4. Enjoy... More

The food is great and the Food Shark is typical Marfa. Don't expect conventional, but enjoy the old and young hippies and make believe it's 1968.
