Not bad but bland and disappointing. Given the hype surrounding this place I was expecting an epic or legendary dive. This place is neither. Most traditional taquerías give you 2 tortillas plus abundant filling as a single order. At over $3.00 per taco I was...expecting the same here, but no 3:00 gets you a single small bland taco. Between 4 of us we tried a good variety of items including carne asada, adobo, fish tacos some sort of beef not ham syncronizadas and all were ho-hum. The accompanying garnishes such as as the pickled carrots and onions were watery lacking the vinegary bite. Various sauces, brown and green looked to have come out of Herdes bottles. Not a bad place, but expensive for what it was. Plan on spending $12 to 15 for a meal. Proportionately less for a snack. Sonoran hotdogs better elsewhere such as on Oracle between Glenn and Grant.More

Try the Yaqui Taco! Everything cooked fresh to order. Order by phone for pick up or at the window for take out or outdoor dining.

I ordered the bean burrito, as usual, and was shocked at how small it was for $4. Another burro was coming out at the same time and was twice as big. The girl said it was because that one had meat. Do only meat eaters...like a decent- sized lunch? They were not kind about it and I left without eating. Bye-bye, Nene!More

Absolutely best Sonora dog in town. I went to about six different places, including Güero Canelo, and this place definitely has the best Sonora dogs. Give it a try!

Best Sonoran hot dogs! Go now! Excellent salsa bar with numerous toppings. Dogs come topped with everything. Unlike Guero Canela, there are no grilled green onions or chiles to help yourself to. Carne asada caramelo was good too.

Absolutely wonderfully tasting food here! From the Sonoran dogs to the Nachos and tacos, everything I've eaten has tasted great! I gets busy during lunchtime, but GREAT food is worth waiting for! 😋I definitely recommend this place for some good tasting food....🌯 Its much more...than a food truck, it's truly restaurant style cooking in a food truck setting. If you dont know about this place, you'd better hurry down and find out!! 👍🏾👍🏾More

Came for the hot dog and tried some other items. Delicious carne asada. Friendly staff and love all the self-served topping that are available. Air conditioned area to eat which was appreciated. Thought the prices were reasonable and the grilled peppers and onions that come...with your order are worth eating. Easy to pull in to their large parking lot , but can be challenging getting out of it because of the traffic and only one way in and out.More

This is worth the time and money, though it wasn’t the excellent level I thought it might have been. Flavor isn’t as good as Guero Canelo but offers some different stuff you can’t get there. If you like trying new things, this is five out...of five! Try tacos dorados, and lorenza with all the condiments for a wild ride of flavors!More

This is an outdoor Mexican eatery that is like no other. They have all kinds of food to eat plus an array of sauces and sides like no other. The place is always busy and suits workers as well as families. Stop by and try...it.More

The Tacos Dorados here are amazing, get them with any type of meat but especially carne aside and pollo (chicken). The only downside now is it's about 15-20 minutes each way from my business so I don't get to go as often as I want....Hence, now I just get the tacos dorados but everything I've eaten here has been good. The papanchas are especially good. I know the big claim to fame for them is the Sonoran Hot Dog but I'm stuck with the dorados! Also can get authentic sodas from Mexico. There is also permanent seating inside with TVs, usually running soccer, but you'll still have to go order from the trailer. I eat here every chance I get, you should too,.More
