We had lunch here last week and it was GREAT! Food is creative, fresh and plentiful with lots of seating. Staff are friendly and helpful. This meal was the best of our meals on this trip!

The Food Shark Food Van lamb kabobs, hummus, pita, and falafel was so good I got it twice that week. I have lived in the Abu Dhabi and in the evenings we would go to the parks and have this same meal with our children. This reminded me so much of those meals - the taste of mint on the... More

Food Shark is famous and I worried it wouldn't live up to the hype, but worries vanished as soon as I bit into my Marfalafel. Three falafel balls, crisp on the outside, soft and moist inside, drizzled with tahini, yogurt and harissa sauces, served with hummus on top of a greek salad, all sitting in a flour tortilla. Great flavor,... More

We wanted to try this food truck because of its high ratings, so went there at noon on a Saturday. It was supposed to open then. 90 minutes later it was still closed. This is no way to do business.

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!!
