This is a food truck restaurant with a menu that has few choices and pretty much changes daily. I have never made a bad choice. The owner is friendly and seems careful about what he serves. He also works festivals or other events so you can't always count on finding him parked in the usual place, especially in the summer.

Great food - pineapple chicken tacos, Thai beef tacos, brisket sandwich, and porky sandwich all excellent. Terrific flavors, fresh ingredients, and direct chef-to-customer service! Lunch for $5-8. Kalamazoo's first food truck :) favorite spot to pick up lunch.
