Wonderful and unique food cart. Delightful food and not expensive. Keith the owner is a hoot!!! If you are in Mt. Shasta make sure to give this place a try for lunch.

It is easy to get off and back to highway five. Good simple food, served out a window and eaten on picnic tables. Simple food, worth the money. Anyone who skips this place for Micky D's is crazy.

The crispy pork quesadillas are my favorite and they only have them on Fridays-absolutely delicious! Everything I have tried I have liked. Fun outdoor dining or you can sit indoors but it is kind of cold. Definitely worth trying.

We stopped by for some tacos about a half hour before they close in the afternoon. The guy in the little kiosk where they prepare the food was a bit rude and grumpy. He didn't have any meats to make tacos, and wouldn't make a veg Taco. He said we could have beans. We didn't understand why he didn't just... More

First off, there should be an extra star awarded for the name of this place alone. I popped in for lunch and asked them what was good. The recommendation was an Italian sausage with peppers (red and green) with Monterey Jack. Wow, was it good. Very friendly counter service and a nice, casual location.

They sell out of a truck. I last had their creole taco. Yum! They have unusual tacos and enchiladas and the prices are very reasonable.
