“Great food; fun, too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We been several times and have tried now all the tacos. They are all so good I really can't choose a favorite so we'll just have to keep going back. Steak, shrimp and fish are the top three, however. the food is consistently good and it's just plain fun to hang out with the crowd that gathers. Food this good doesn't come in seconds. So relax, enjoy watching the kids play and get ready for a good meal. Next time I'm going for the burrito!

“Fun Foodie Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

This food truck is fun, and the tacos and burritos are definitely a foodie version with fresh, upscale toppings. You have to track online where the truck will be each day, and there is always a line, great place to catch up with people. Stuffed with grilled steak, or pulled chicken/pork or jumbo shrimp and there is a vegetarian version. Much better than the local Mexican restaurant. Only drawback is the wait for food and it is room temp by the time you get it home.

“Best Tacos and Burritos north of Boston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

I've had some great tacos in other parts of the country, but this is the first time in the Boston area that I have had really, really tasty and creative tacos. The ingredients are fresh, as are all the sauces and condiments.

The fish tacos were excellent, as were the black bean and sweet potato tacos. My chicken buritto was super tasty and very filling. Metzy's offers a wide selection of Jarritos Mexican sodas, bottled waters and juices for the kids.

They also have a kids menu, too.

Eric Metzdorf, the owner, is super friendly and goes out of his way to make everybody feel appreciated and at home.

If you are heading out to Plum Island, stop by the airport and grab a taco. Metzy's is there Thursday thru Sunday.
