Gus's Lunch Box Truck
Glendale Blvd. and Silver Lake Blvd.
One of my favorite food blogs is The Great Taco Hunt. I was disappointed to learn that The Great Taco Hunt has thrown in the tortilla. While not exactly the taco truck I wanted to review, Gus's Lunch Box was in front of Silver Lake Wine, where I was meeting a friend to share a bottle of wine. I believe Gus's is always in front of Silver Lake Wine, but you'll have to google to make sure.
The child verde was great!! Very fresh, full of flavor and balanced-not one overpowering flavor. But, the chicken was bland and lacked flavor.
The carnitas were much better. A good, not great example of carnitas-tender, could have used a little more seasoning but good flavor.
Service was good. The tacos came out quickly and the guy taking my order was nice.
I'm not really a food truck person, I've only reviewed four other trucks. But, I really wanted to review a taco truck because I'm sadden to hear that The Great Taco Hunt blog will no longer be reviewing taco trucks!
