“Bewst Taco Truck Become Best Taco Takeout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Hidden behind the Mobil station at US- & Lockwood in the heart of Riverside.is absolutely th best mexicn takeout.
From chile relleno ato enchiladas and tacos, the cooking is made to order from fresh ingreditents and it tastes like it.
Call in advance as it takes a little time to deliver mad to order food. Worth the wit.
While you arre waiting try some of the cinnamin coated chips. They are great.

I had spicy pork, chicken, shrimp. All very good. The wait can be long on nice days. Will try one of the tortas next time- they looked great. Park benches to eat outside at Jackie Robinson park

“Bright Yellow Truck by Beamers. Can't miss if a Mexican fan...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

I have been visiting El Charrito for nearly two years. Their location on Apache Place in Riverside (Greenwich) is by far the better choice but you can't go wrong with Tacos or Huraches from the truck. Carlos who's never without his hairnet on is a Stamford local who travels to Mexico and brings back even more authentic and amazing recipes each trip. The park where the truck is now is undergoing renovation but that shouldn't stop you from stopping by. Authentic Mexican with quality ingredients at a fair price. You will be amazed at how great it can be. Check it out...

Tip: They have a new website at http://elcharritollc.com/index.htm
Tip: Take Route 1 South pass Riverside Commons at Mobil Station turn right, first left to Apache Place...

“Simply the best Mexican food anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

A big yellow truck. I've eaten there many times. Consistently, a high quality treat. They also have a storefront in Riverside, CT. The truck is parked next to a park, so if it's a nice day, sit at a picnic table and enjoy. The owner is obviously concerned about quality. I could go on - but just try it. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
