I call to place an order and they give me wrong food


Fresh, authentic, inexpensive Mexican food. Their pico de gallo is hands down the best I've ever had.Food: 5/5

If you don’t prefer rest stop pizza, this is great quick spot to grab some food while on the road.

I highly recommend this Mexican joint! I had the Burrito Chilango (Chorizo and steak) and it was amazingly fresh, hot, spicy, crispy and everything else you want from a burrito. Ask for it toasted or “durado” for a delicious crisp. The location is a little strange but don’t be fooled; this restaurant makes wonderful food!

Started enjoying the food crafted by Carlos with the Yellow truck at Jackie Robinson Park nearly 15 years ago and what continues today is great Al Pastor reminiscint of Ciudad Juarez/El Paso personally I prefer a tostada over a taco as its just a great balance between the Pork Pineapple Cojita Cheese and Beans on a crispy flat tortilla but also great as a taco, sope or even a burrito. If you are not into Al Pastor or Carnitas, they do great Pollo (chicken) tacos or be adventurous and try one of the many other proteins offered.With so many great taco spots in lower Fairfield County and I've tried quite a few, I return often to El Chilito as it is a hidden gem in Riverside that right behind the Mobil Station on Apache Drive.Ask for both sauces with your order. They have a smooth very hot rojo and a more medium level green salsa (tip mix them to balance it out) really nice. If you like chunky salsa they offer it with Chips and even make a killer guacamole.The true definition of a taco place is the care and attention to detail & Carlos and his team bring that every order. Look El Charrito is still around (@stamford town center food court open till 7pm) & its good too but El Chilito is the orginal and after 15 years I return consistently to 5 Apache Drive & the yellow truck at Jackie Robinson Park.

The only authentic Mexican taco spot I love. I moved out here 4 years ago and I've religiously come here and never disappointed. The food is quite literally addicting. Love them. The perfect hole in the wall spot
