Trying the Tacos Y Salsas Los Forasteros food truck next to KFC off East 25th street was overall an enjoyable lunch. The food, service, and area were all great for a food truck experience.

To start, the parking lot was a decent size and was easily accessible for customers to come, park, and order food. The menu was clear and easy to read with big pictures on the side to see what the food options are. There was also a table off to the side of the truck that was clean and in the sunlight for either waiting or eating a meal. 

My personal experience at the truck was on a nice day where the conditions made ordering and eating my food very easy and enjoyable. However, on a cold, rainy, or windy day, this experience would not have been as nice and would have run back into the car to wait for my food. 

The staff were nice and patient in waiting for me to decide what I wanted to order. The menu was small enough that it was not overbearing to read all the options but just big enough that the selection was nice. Their taco selection alone was full of options such as pastor, asada, carnitas, and chicken. For specialty tacos they also had barbacoa, tijuana, and lengua. I ordered tijuana and carnitas tacos, as well as their corn in a cup.

The tijuana tacos were amazing, hot, lots of flavor, and plenty of sauces on the side to try as well as two limes. The shells on them were also cooked perfectly, not too soft, or hard. The carnitas tacos were hot and had lots of flavor as well and the meat used was very good and not fatty or chewy, lastly the corn in the cup was very different than others I have previously had, theirs has more liquid than I would like, more of a soupy type of corn. However, the flavor was very good, personally just would like less liquid.

My meal cost 27 dollars for the items including a standard tip. The price seemed fair considering the amount of food I received as long as the taste was also good. The food did deliver the taste for the price it was placed as. It was a lot of food for one person and next time I would probably get one meal with a side and be just fine.

If I were to go again, I would like to try the nachos as my side, posole as my entrée, and their champurrado for dessert. Sadly when I went this time they were out of the champurrado, so I am hopeful they have more next time. Their service however, combined with the overall experience, made lunch a great part of the day and for that, I would recommend trying them out whenever the opportunity comes.
