Had the chicken tocas (3 of them), rice, beans and a Mexican coke. Too cold to eat at the outdoor picnic table so we got it to go. As good or better than it was last time. We will be back in January.

I've eaten here multiple times and have never been disappointed. Ordering through Grubhub is always super quick to be delivered and the few times they've been out of something (usually guac), they call right away and see what you'd like instead. Going to the actual...More

I had the chicken nachos and they were delicious. The breakfast wrap is a keeper. We shall return. It's a wagon, a couple picnic tables....what more could you ask for?

There's something truly American about the trailer restaurants, those often ethnic-flavored local "trailers" that are "parked" temporarily providing often excellent, fast, tasty street food in numerous American towns and cities. One of Lansing's favorite is "El Az" (mispronounced frequently, if somewhat fondly) right on Michigan...More

Don't be scared away just because it's a food cart. It's amazing!!!! I always get the chicken quesadilla with pico de gallo inside and it's delicious. Try their mild green salsa. It's the best salsa I've ever had! Bring cash. I usually do carryout but...More
