“Good food at a great price”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

El Camión is cheap, plentiful and delicious! Their Tacos and Borritos bright, fresh taste that great Mexican food has and I especially enjoy the Carne Asada, which is nicely grilled and tender. There is outdoor seating for about 8-10 under cover and another 8 outside. Service is pretty quick and always friendly. This food truck puts many restaurants to shame and for good reason,

“Holy Burrito”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

This thing was huge, I mean it, huge and delicious. I had a Lengua Burrito and a Cabeza Taco. Both delicious!

“Sad, but this is the best Mexican food in Seattle city limits”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great food, cheap. The conchinita pibil is the best, any way you get it. Try something different instead of tacos, like Mulitas or Sopes (Gorditos). The real flavor of Vera Cruz. I think the trucks in the Home Depot Parking lot and on 15th are the best by just a little bit. What's wrong with trip advisor reviewers. Tacobell is rated higher???

“Incredible bargain, fantastic Mexican fast food”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We have tried both locations (Ballard & off Aurora) and find them consistently tastey. All options tried to date have been flavorful and filling. Definitely setting the standard for the emerging food truck genre in Seattle. Carnitas, Adobada, Fish tacos all have wonderful flavor. Be aware and prepared to eat in your car, seating is available in a rough and ready parking lot tent. Family of four can keep it under $35.

“very good food, good value”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Homemade Mexican food trom a food truck (this review is for the one off 15th in Ballard). Inexpensive, and many good choices: fish tacos were excellent, gorditas, mulitas, and chicken tacos were all tasty. I thought the tamales were excellent, though I through the chicken mole was not mole-y enough for me; the pork adobado was great. Standard range of drinks plus Mexican Coke and imported sodas and bottled water. Food is made to order and many people phone in orders, so be prepared to wait: there's a foosball table and a box of toys for kids, but you are going to wait a little bit. It's worth it.
