La Villa Real

Mark Manger
The La Villa Real food trucks don't do much driving; true loncheras in the old-school tradition, they stick to their regular locations at Federal and Fourth Avenue and Alameda and Raritan. The vehicles don't need to move to attract customers, though: A consistent clientele patronizes these trucks, with regulars returning sometimes three times a day. The menu, which hasn't been translated to English, features Northern Mexican offerings made from recipes passed down through the family that owns the enterprise. The spice-laden tacos, burritos bursting with cheese and beans, and fat gorditas are all made to order on a sizzling grill inside the trucks; fans grab them while they're hot, add to the fire with condiments from the salsa bar, then consume their meals while sitting in their cars.
