This restaurant is a must stop if you're on a mission for good food. This is food from a trailer. That being said, they make each order one at a time. Sometimes you have to wait. The wait is well worth your time. The quality...More

Stopped on Saturday noon, Memorial weekend. They were busy. Since it was my first time I ordered just a beef taco. It was almost 15 minutes till it was ready. The shell is only 4 or 5 inches in diameter, but it was very good....More

Had the chicken tocas (3 of them), rice, beans and a Mexican coke. Too cold to eat at the outdoor picnic table so we got it to go. As good or better than it was last time. We will be back in January.

El Oasis food trucks offer inexpensive, delicious Mexican food. Tacos or burritos, rice & beans are my usual choices for lunch. The small burrito is not small at all, but if you have a really big appetite, there is a large! Try the creamy green...More

Your driving from the campus of Michigan State University on Michigan Avenue toward the state capitol building. Parked on an abandoned parking lot is this orange and white trailer that looks like a toned down circus wagon. Its just a walk up, but there always...More

El Oasis serves great tasting Mexican food at a very reasonable price! There were some tables to enjoy your meal on a nice day but food orders are essentially all take outs which gives you an option. The menu has quite a selection of items...More
