Your money couldn’t be better spent. You only have a three hour window, just stop complaining about Marfa hours and get up there. Take your cash. Be patient if they’re busy. You’ll be rewarded with a healthy, clean meal worth eating. Ive enjoyed falafel in...More

GO there! Do not delay. They are open for lunch and the BLT was outstanding. Food truck with a "dining car" in an old bus. Worth finding it and the AMC Matador fence is special - have to see it!

We read about this food truck and it didn't disappoint. Order from the truck, sit in a bus outfitted as a restaurant. Or sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Specializes in falafel and lamb. Yum!

Having spent time in Marfa, and hearing how great the food was at Food Shark, we decided to take the time (and we planned for it). 45 min wait. The food was not great, the presentation was not great nor did the flavors balance.

FOOD SHARK serves up Mediterranean-by-way-of-West-Texas food Wednesday through Saturday from 12 - 3:00. Please note - We only answer the telephone during business hours, no voicemail for catering or anything else. Also, if it is busy...i.e. a line of people at window, they take priority over phone orders so we may not always answer the phone. Thanks for your understanding.
