El Paisa Taco Truck

2900 International Blvd., Oakland, CA - (510) 384-5465
One of the greatest mobile eateries. They offer a wide array of fillings from chicken to beef head or brain. A favorite is the unbelievably succulent pork carnitas. Great food, and at the right price. There is no seating, other than a few available curbs in the lot where the truck parks.

Tidier than a taco in soft corn tortillas, the quesadilla is a sandwich inside a broad flour tortilla. The melty cheese helps keep all the ingredients together.

Throughout the country, but especially in the West and Southwest, the proliferation of taco trucks with really excellent, cheap food is good evidence that Roadfood is thriving.
