“Bright Yellow Truck by Beamers. Can't miss if a Mexican fan...”

El Charrito Taco Truck
Ranked #178 of 473 Restaurants in Stamford
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 July 2012

I have been visiting El Charrito for nearly two years. Their location on Apache Place in Riverside (Greenwich) is by far the better choice but you can't go wrong with Tacos or Huraches from the truck. Carlos who's never without his hairnet on is a Stamford local who travels to Mexico and brings back even more authentic and amazing recipes each trip. The park where the truck is now is undergoing renovation but that shouldn't stop you from stopping by. Authentic Mexican with quality ingredients at a fair price. You will be amazed at how great it can be. Check it out...

Tip: They have a new website at http://elcharritollc.com/index.htm
Tip: Take Route 1 South pass Riverside Commons at Mobil Station turn right, first left to Apache Place...

A big yellow truck. I've eaten there many times. Consistently, a high quality treat. They also have a storefront in Riverside, CT. The truck is parked next to a park, so if it's a nice day, sit at a picnic table and enjoy. The owner is obviously concerned about quality. I could go on - but just try it. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

It's not a perfect dining experience, but the quality of the food completely outweighs any potential drawbacks...the chef, Carlos, knows his stuff! It's all AUTHENTIC, unlike the Americanized stuff you get elsewhere, and for rock-bottom prices too.

Alex and the other ladies who take orders are all very sweet, and efficient; been going at least weekly for over a year and they haven't mixed an order up yet, even at peak times.

El Charrito Taco Truck has been blogged about and has been seen on TV. Everything said about this wonderful Mexican food truck is true. I live in NM and have rarely had better tasting Mexican fare. The truck offers a variety of dishes from enchiladas and tacos to tortas (sandwiches) all cooked to order and very reasonably priced (cheap). The truck parks at Richmond Hill and Main St. at Jackie Robinson Park - there is one picnic table and one bench available so be prepared to stand, share a seat, sit on the grass or in your car. It's more than worth it.
