We looked this up on TA and we were not disappointed. I recommend combining it with happy hour in the bar. We tried the fish tacos, the Kogi dog, the Burger and the beef tacos. All of them really tasty.

Had lunch at the food truck. Delicious fish tacos - cooked just right. Umami burger was exceptional. Will return for another lunch. Our daughter said shrimp tacos were also excellent. Didn't have to wait long for lunch.
