In short, good quick (and clean) food, but city prices. A couple of us stopped there last week for lunch – all of a sudden there are options down at that end of town that don’t involve the concession stand (although one of the volunteers, Diane, is a neighbor and a lovely lady. But it’s a concession/newspaper stand.)
One of us ordered a burrito ($5), one of us ordered 2 beef tacos and I ordered a tofu (!) taco and a bean & cheese taco. We decided to have a couple of Jarritos lime sodas (no high fructose corn syrup – yea!) and the total was less than $20 for 3 of us. Not terrible. Per portion the prices are small but the portions are small so you need at least 2 and my friend needed 3. Not such a cheap lunch then. All around the table we agreed that it was simple and good, just not quite enough. It reminded me of eating tacos in Mexico (never found tofu tacos there, though).
They have just opened and are still evolving – I overheard that there will be fish and shrimp tacos in the future, and they’ve already expanded their open days. They’re friendly. We need good places. Buy local. Go check it out and let me know what you think. Better yet, let them know what you think.
- Tortillaville (beautiful shiny cart on South Front Street, across from the train station)
- Wednesday – Sunday
- Noon – 6 (update: unless it’s all-day-pouring-down-rain)
***Update (6/18): Fish tacos are available. Vegan options are the tofu taco, or the bean taco without the cheese. Yum!
***New Update (7/2): They’ve moved to the sw corner of 5th & Warren – I can’t tell you how convenient that is for me! Should be great for business.
***Newer Update (June 2010): Move again, to 347 Warren. More options. Still good food.
