First Review by durruti

Disappointed - Edit

I normally don't write reviews, but I thought this warranted attention. The food was an adequate serving size, but a little bland. The more important issue was the way I was treated. Now, maybe it was just a bad day or the person waiting on me was really busy as she stated, but I left feeling like she was being rude. I felt like I was being talked down to when I asked a simple question. Hopefully, this customer service will change and El Nutri Taco won't lose any more customers.

Pros: Portion size

Cons: Customer service, Bland food

whenever I'm hungry for some quick spicy Mexican Food, I swing by here, its cheap hot and ready, generous with the lime and salsa, and soy curls taste kind of like carne-asada I guess, I haven't had true carne in over a decade but its pretty tasty none the less.

Pros: cheap, vegan friendly business

Cons: dog's in backyard gate :(, look like they want to run and play

Cactus, avocado sauce, grilled onions...yum - Edit

There are times I despair at living close to 82nd Avenue which has a long way to go before one can call it Avenue of Roses without irony. Among the beacons of hope are places like El Nutri Taco, which has kept locals happy with their robust menu of vegan Mexican food that is flavorful enough to eat without any salsa. But, of course, get some salsa! Try different items out, because they do have variations in flavor and texture. The chipotle is too hot for me, but I love the potato, cactus, and grilled onions. Service is awesome, and there is covered seating if you can't wait to bring the food home with you. If you have a modest appetite, one burrito will last you two meals. Bring a book to exchange at the Little Free Library on site. If you're anywhere along the SE Woodstock corridor looking for eats closer-in, the bike ride or drive to the other side of 82nd Ave is totally worth it. Soon you will be that local in the know bringing other people to this little cart.

Pros: Robust menu, Nice service, Covered place to sit

Excellent vegan Mexican food! - Edit

This great food cart is run by a friendly family & is set up in their front yard. There are several picnic style tables, including some in a covered tent that keeps the rain off. While animal products are served here, their vegan menu is extensive and includes items that I'd never previously seen offered anywhere.

I recommend El Nutri-Taco highly!!!

Pros: Good Value, Friendly People, Best option in area

Cons: Open air, can be a plus too!, Not entirely vegan (yet!), Not 24 hours (yet!)

Their location is one reason I bought my house - Edit

These guys are really great - first found them when I was house hunting - part of the reason I bought my place, a mere 2 blocks away. They have a traditional sort of Mexican street food / cart menu, but also a full vegan / veggie menu. You can get burritos, tacos, taco salad, etc with soyrizo or tofu (fried tofu chunks). There tofu fajitas are great! Wonderful burrito cart salsa and they are very sweet people. My fave is the combo burrito and tofu fajitas!!

Pros: really friendly, great food, many options

Cons: Too close to my house for my own good!, Packaging is foam for some to go stuff
