Food trucks in New Haven

Does anyone have a review of the food trucks I saw parked along the access road along Rt. 95 in New Haven, right along the water? They look plenty funky.

  1. I've never eaten there, but there are ones all over downtown New Haven that are very good.

    1. I've eaten at a couple of them and they were all good and cheap. My fav is the small black trailer, tongue tacos, yum!

        I've tried them too. easy on, easy off, I picked the one that looked the best maintained. I got into a line behind a bunch of central Americans (good sign), and got a pretty good burrito out of the deal. I got back on the road, but if you choose to hang there, the scenery is pretty good.

        It's a 'definitely do again' thing.

        tongue tacos? Interesting! I'll have to look up the word for tongue in Spanish.

          Lengua tacos. Pretty common at your typical taqueria.

            Mission accomplished! Tried a lengua burrito - can't remember which truck. Very tender, good flavor, but a bit too juicy.

      2. If there is an Ixtapa#1 truck there, they say it is the best. You must try lengua tacos!
        I'm still looking for the answer to whether there is any relationship to Ixtapa Grill, on Whitney, in Hamden?

        1. I'm more of a fan of the cabeza tacos. I've enjoyed all the flavor tacos except the pollo my mom got one time. At a buck a pop they're a wonderful snack on my way through. I'm pretty sure I go to one of the Ixtapa trucks. As I recall, sometimes there is more than one parked in the lineup.

          1. IXtapa #1 for sure and the lengua rocks. I asked a long time ago if they had relationship to place on whitney and was told yes by the guy working in truck, if they do anymore i dont know
