    This is a hill I will die on. Best. Tacos. In. The. City. Wonderful service, lovely people, cute little outdoor food truck restaurant atmosphere, AMAZING food. Today I had 3 chicken street tacos and they rocked my world and filled me up, the grilled chicken is perfect and I love the additions of radish, lime and grilled onions. Super affordable as well. Love El Chapin!

    We came here for lunch after leaving the zoo. It was nice that they had shaded outdoor seating for us to enjoy our food. I got 3 street style tacos all different meats with a pineapple drink. The food didn't take long to get. I think the only true thing missing from all 3 of my tacos was some spice. I guess I could've ordered jalapeños with it, but my mom had 2 sauces that came with her taco plate so I made it work. It was good for a Saturday lunch.

    An experience to remember. This place is a hidden gem, somehow still in a food truck (they have another food truck connected with them where they serve hamburgers as well. Haven't tried that yet. I consider myself to be a Mexican food snob, and like California Mexican food typically the best. The place has an absolutely great atmosphere. I feel like I had lunch in Mexico. The service was outstanding. The cooks and counter workers were more than kind and friendly. So much that I was surprised. They are the type of people that get to know their clients and ask how they are in a brief but fun and satisfying way. And the food... Outstanding. I've only had one item on the menu, but my plan it to become a regular customer and try most of their items. Super highly recommend!

    El Chapin food truck is one of two food trucks just behind Ranch Foods Direct on Fillmore. They use the same ground beef from Ranch Foods Direct, hence the extra appeal. There is minimal umbrella patio seating. We got 4 burgers for us, 2 kids, and a baby. The meal was what I imagine McDonalds could be, but isn't. El Chapin fulfilled my expectations for a simple, slightly greasy fast-food burger. The patties are thin, so bulk is not the boast here. What works very well is the flavor and presentation. Though this isn't a luxury hamburger, it is a well made inexpensive one. Did you ever see The Founder with Michael Keaton? Remember the scene where he orders a McDonald's hamburger for the first time and is completely blown away by its taste and simplicity? Remember The Menu, where Margot asks the chef to make her a cheeseburger, and he says it will taste like the first cheeseburger she ever had in her life? This is that burger. I kept thinking to myself, how did a nitwit like me find a burger so tasteful? The patty is noticeably less meat than what I have been getting at previous establishments. The thin patty also reminded me of what makes a good quick burger. The bun held up well and is superior to a cheap bland bun. Raw julienned white onion also worked well and is preferable to browned on this burger. Fries were seasoned with the right amount of salt, and still had some grease to them. Overall this was a lightly greasy meal, which ended up being quite satisfying. Next time I would consider a double patty burger for a completely full belly. Or possibly another single burger. If you're in the neighborhood, this is like re-experiencing your childhood. If you're not in the neighborhood, they also offer Door Dash. Note that my 10 year old son said that these were not his favorite fries. He also said this was his second favorite burger, behind the ones I make at home. For the price, El Chapin is an absolute must.

    We had the El Chapin catering truck come to our office for National Employee Appreciation Day and it was AMAZING! Everyone enjoyed the food, it was so good. Paola and Luis were also very helpful and went above and beyond to assure the experience was good. In fact, the day before they accommodated a last minute request of needing a fish option to accommodate those following the Lent tradition of not eating meat on Friday’s. What a wonderful experience; great food, good people, satisfaction!
