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?

El Oasis food trucks offer inexpensive, delicious Mexican food. Tacos or burritos, rice & beans are my usual choices for lunch. The small burrito is not small at all, but if you have a really big appetite, there is a large! Try the creamy green hot sauce and the mild green sauce together for a tangy, spicy kick. The Michigan Avenue location has added a second truck where they are introducing some new menu items. The pork in dry chile sauce is amazing-REALLY! So glad they now have a truck in Haslett, too.

Your driving from the campus of Michigan State University on Michigan Avenue toward the state capitol building. Parked on an abandoned parking lot is this orange and white trailer that looks like a toned down circus wagon. Its just a walk up, but there always seems to be a line. I finally decide to stop and stand in line. Several of the patrons are speaking Spanish. The menu is fairly simple - tacos, burritos, sopas, etc. The meat choices range from the usual (beef, chicken) to the exotic (tongue, beef cheeks, tripe). The food is prepared to order and the flavors are clean and fresh. This is a refreshing departure from the mundane fried flavorless fare at what passes for Mexican food in America.

El Oasis serves great tasting Mexican food at a very reasonable price! There were some tables to enjoy your meal on a nice day but food orders are essentially all take outs which gives you an option. The menu has quite a selection of items and would definitely go back to try all of them!!

Really excellent food! Made fresh! Had the carne asada and chicken tacos with salsa and guacamole with chips as a side! An entire meal for 2 with drinks was only $14. Quality for the price can't be beat. There are also shades picnic tables where you can sit and enjoy in case you want to walk just a few steps for seconds!
