Wow, everything looks so good, Ed. The fish looks huge in that taco.


I had been waiting to see what you had decided to write about; this place/the food looks really good. I am now trying the manta ray whenever I see it on a menu. Your description makes me want to make the three hour drive to Yuma...

Thanks, Carol. You gotta drive faster, Cathy, I can be in SD from here in 2 hrs 20 minutes, border patrol permitting - of course.


Ed, is this place still around? I'll be visiting Yuma in mid-June and was hoping to try this or one "mobile eateries" in the area. I have a feeling they're fewer and farther between in summer, but thought it was worth a shot.

No it isn't - though I have heard rumors of a truck by the same name down in Somerton or San Luis. Mid June is not good for mobile eateries. Juanita's Seafood might be open on 8th close to Ave A, but it is closed evenings and maybe la Botana or El Cositas out on Fortuna Blvd. Most of the places do close in the summer. The other hot spot for them at the moment is on Pacific between 24th and 16th. They would only be open in the evenings and none is seafood focused, they would be the best bets because there were 5 different trucks in the area a couple of months ago, so some may hang in for the summer.


Thanks for the info, Ed. We will try Fortuna first, and if no luck, we'll head for Pacific. Love this blog, by the way!

I went out Saturday evening and found the mobile eateries on Pacific to be open and busy. There are 3 - 5 in a semi enclosed lot on the west side of Pacific not too far from 16th. At the intersection of 24th and Pacific, there are two trucks in parking lots facing each other on the east side of the intersection.

I suspect they are only open in the evenings because lunch is just too hot now. Exactly what time they open isn't clear, but we were there right around sundown.
