The Food Truck Diaries, Volume 24: KBORK

The Mexican food at downtown food truck KBORK can hold court with any truck in town, and that includes the dozens of amazing taco trucks south of 22nd Street. The tacos are some of the best, and the bean burritos are filled with tender beans and copious amounts of cheese, which holds everything together perfectly, bite after bite.

The truck takes its name from Caborca, a Mexican municipality located in northern Sonora, and the food takes its cues from the culinary traditions of that area. The salsa bar is decent; the blaring Mexican pop music drowns out the growl of downtown perfectly; and prices top out at $5.50.

If upon your arrival there is a paper sign taped to the truck offering “Really Good Dirty Tacos,” you would do well to order that. Grilled sirloin steak, bacon, chorizo, chiles, onion, tomato and cilantro are piled high on a tortilla and handed over for $1.50. They are best when topped with the jalapeno-heavy salsa, and three make a very fine and affordable lunch.

KBORK parks outside of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., weekdays.
