What is more Detroit than food out of truck? Sure, the concept wasn’t invented in the Motor City, yet it’s no surprise food trucks have proliferated over the past few years in a city where walkability remains challenging in many places. And frankly, people just prefer things on wheels.
So here’s a quick pedestrian guide to mobile Detroit eats.
Let’s start at the beginning. El Guapo—Fresh Mexican Grill was the first fully licensed food truck in Detroit. Debuting in 2011, El Guapo offers tacos, burrito bowls, and their own tortilla chips. Try the Korean beef burrito or shrimp tacos. It’s hard to go wrong. Each Saturday you can find the truck at Eastern Market, and throughout the week at various spots around Detroit. Check the website for a calendar of El Guapo’s whereabouts.
