Thrilled to sit in the bus, retrofitted with tables to accomodate 2 or 4. Food always terrific and a great lunch destination in Marfa!

We had a great take-away lunch from Food Shark while staying in Marfa. We both had the daily special, a baguette with roasted eggplant, mozzarella and more with a side salad. It was well-prepared and ready in 15 minutes, all packed in containers so we could take it back to the casita in which we were staying. (We passed up the chance to eat in their "dining car" -- an old school bus.) Quality was excellent, and price was reasonable. Only complaint: They're only open part of the week.

There are very few places to eat in Marfa and the Food Shark is the definite highlight! When we were in town almost everything was shut down, including Maiya's and the Pizza Foundation so we opted for the Food Shark for lunch two days in a row. The couple who runs it is so nice and the food is DELICIOUS! We had the falafel wrap the first day and then the chicken torta sandwich the second day. Everything we ate was just delicious. The first day we only waited about 15 minutes for our food but the second day took 45 :( When they get busy just be prepared for the wait. It was still totally worth it. Thank you Food Shark!

since most dining facilities are closed much of the week in Marfa, the Food Shark stands out initially because it is actually OPEN!. The food truck parks in the center of town under a large canopy with plenty of seating. Since the weather is most often good for outside dining, this setting works well. Seating is at communal tables and is great for sharing conversation with locals and tourists. We ate here 3 times (every lunch) and each time had the specials which were different each day. The chef, the guy who takes your order and money, is very friendly and seems to love what he is doing. The food is outstanding in therms of the quality of the ingredients, preparation and flavor. The culinary profile is eclectic, inventive Mediterranean. Most items are under $10--for a hearty and bountiful lunch. Food Shark is great, don't miss it.

Love this place!! Small food truck right on the main road where they usually hold the farmers market. This place has amazing homemade falafel and hummus. Generous portions and wonderful sides. Most food is vegetarian, but they did offer a turkey sandwich when I was there last. They also have an awesome selection of hot sauces, which I love, but the food already has wonderful flavors. Will be back there for sure!!
