Last week at this time, I had not experienced El Chilango for myself. I had driven past it longingly on more then one occasion.
Finally, the stars aligned and I was able to try it out.
El Chilango is a food truck located off of Route 50 in Arlington, VA.
We drove up to the truck and found a parking spot across the street. I approached the truck and the smell was amazing. On the side of the truck, they list the different types of tacos that they have, all for $2 each. They have beef, pork, chorizo, tongue, and chicken. These are some of the freshest tacos that I have ever had.
The truck is run by two brothers, who could not be nicer. They are known for handing out free tacos to people as they wait.
The tacos are outstanding. They are served with lime, picked onions and habanero, cucumber, radishes, and two different types of salsa. The steak is my favorite, but they are all delicious.
Those who are scared off by the tongue need not be afraid. You will be surprised by how tender and tasty the meat is. Do yourself a favor and check this place out. Not also is the food cheap and delicious, the owners are extremely nice.
