It's hard to say that they have good customer service when the manager (Francis) is rude and disrespectful to customers.I forget to ask for a salsa and go to the cashier to ask for one. The manager tells the cashier that I have to wait for the salsa until the rest of the orders in front of me are fulfilled. After 7 mins I tell the cashier that my tacos are getting cold and she tries to follow up but the manager just tells her "sorry I have all these orders before" and to full review

I had the taco sampler, and it was delicious. It's been a while since I've eaten off the truck and it was as good as I remembered. Years ago I won a t shirt for eating a bowl of spicy chili. I've been wearing it during The Great Food Truck Race. I hope they win it all this Sunday.The restaurant is cool looking, and the employees are very nice. I plan on making this a regular stop when I get hungry.

Someone else described TLT as "modern Mexican" and I think that's pretty accurate. That said, while TLT does modern Mexican well, I was hoping for something more authentic-feeling from a place born from a food truck. I had the Cali burrito with steak, as recommended, and I found the rice a little lime-heavy, and the pico de gallo a little too sweet, but overall still enjoyable. The carne asada was good, and the tortilla was nice and strong.
