Mariscos German truck at Balboa and Clairemont Drive

Is the Mariscos German truck at Balboa and Clairemont Drive still operating? Would anybody know what their typical hours might be, and if they are doing quality work?

      Thanks, GHG - I thought I remembered that thread, but couldn't find it. I don't always get the search tool to work for me, even for simple searches like "Mariscos" in the title field.

        apparently i have the magic touch with the Chow search function, so i'm happy to help :)

    2. When I was there a week ago I only saw the "El Jefecito" truck.

      (Unless you count the "Sneak Peak" coffee truck at the same location...)

        Thanks, cgfan - how was their food?

          Anywhere from good to excellent!

          When I was there I just told the chef to give me 5 tacos, and to mix them up. They had so many different protein items that I could have had 5 different tacos and still not cover them all. So I'm embarrassed to say that I had no idea what was what, but that they were all very good, and some were just excellent.

            The truck advertises "Birrieria" on it front end...seems to be there only at night. Will have to stop there soon...

      2. my local El Princesita taco truck has disappeared from Linda Vista too. What neighborhood keeps stealing all the taco trucks?

          I stopped by there on Monday and they weren't there though the Sneak A Peak (or what ever) coffee place was there and the Birrieria" truck was also open.
