“Mmmmmm Rico”

El Charrito Taco Truck
Ranked #143 of 481 Restaurants in Stamford
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Having recently heard of this food truck by an acquaintance, my co-worker and I decided to try this taqueria today. I ordered a taco de chicharron, a side order of frijoles (negros), and a coke. Total came out to a little over $6. Food is very delicious, especially the beans. The downside to the tacos is that they are very small. You would definitely not be filled if you were to only order this alone. They also have platter type meals. My colleague had enchilades verdes and was very satisfied.

There are a few benches available for sitting. Parking can be hit or miss since the food truck parks right across of Beamer's. The wait for the food can be up to 20 or so minutes. Cash only, it appears.

If you want a quiet, relaxing lunch, this may not be the appropriate setting due to the high traffic, yet a definite recommendation for those interested in eating "comida Mejicana".

Hidden behind the Mobil station at US- & Lockwood in the heart of Riverside.is absolutely th best mexicn takeout.
From chile relleno ato enchiladas and tacos, the cooking is made to order from fresh ingreditents and it tastes like it.
Call in advance as it takes a little time to deliver mad to order food. Worth the wit.
While you arre waiting try some of the cinnamin coated chips. They are great.

I had spicy pork, chicken, shrimp. All very good. The wait can be long on nice days. Will try one of the tortas next time- they looked great. Park benches to eat outside at Jackie Robinson park

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...
