“Shrimp Tacos....Shrimp Tacos....Shrimp Tacos....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

We've gotten food here about a dozen times. We swear we are going to stop by their actual restaurant at the corner of Bells Ferry and Hwy 92 one of these days. As my title indicates, you cannot go wrong with the shrimp tacos. They are some of the best I have ever had. The other taco meats are good, but the shrimp blows the others away, they are that good. Really tasty pickled jalapenos, carrots, and onions as well. Little containers of hot sauce are very spicy...yum! Don't let the looks of the truck turn you away.

“Best kept secret in Woodstock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

I must have driven by this place a gazillion times until one night while driving home from work and not wanting to cook dinner, I saw several Hispanic folks lined up at this gas station taco stand waiting to order. I figured, well, if this is where they go to eat, it must be authentic. So I stopped. Man! if I had known their food was THIS good, I would have stopped long ago. It is now my go-to place whenever I need a take-home Mexican food fix. Sorry, Taco Bell. I highly recommend the burritos and the quesadillas. Quesadillas are served with sour cream and shredded lettuce/diced tomato on the side. Burritos are HUGE, especially for the price. My favorite is the lengua (tongue) burrito. All orders come with small condiment cups of tasty red and green salsa and some Saran-wrapped marinated veggies (carrots, peeled onion, and a jalapeno) on the side. Best deal in town for a $5 meal. Only thing is, it does take a few minutes for them to make your food, but it's definitely worth the wait. You WILL be back.

“Best Mexican food I've ever had from a truck”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

I had seen the truck parked in the Chevron gas station for a year or two, but never tried it. One day, I stopped there with my family and tried their tacos. I ordered a steak taco, my wife ordered a chicken taco and my daughter tried the beef tongue taco. All three were great! They are small street size tacos and you'll probably want two or three. They have plates that include beans and rice, along with two tacos. They also have fish, shrimp and pork tacos along with tortas, burritos etc. The prices are more than reasonable. Don't miss it!

“Shrimp Tacos from a Truck! Yay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Located in a gas station parking lot, the taco truck is a not to be missed attraction of Woodstock, Ga!! The tortillas are super fresh and the relish they make is wonderful. It's kind of like a salsa and kind of like a side dish. Yum!!!

“Taco Truck also has a dine-in reestaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Yes, the best tacos..ever! Did you know it is run by "El Don's" restaurant at the corner of Bells Ferry and Hwy 92. Little restaurant behind the waffle house on the end of that strip mall. Same prices, more options and all you can eat of those yummy pickled carrots! Great place for lunch, tidy and clean and nice staff, too.
