WHAT YOU'RE EATING: Tacos, burritos and tortas
WHO'S MAKING YOUR FOOD: David Martinez, whose family owns Stevensville's Viva Oaxaca restaurant.
BESTSELLER: Tacos al pastor, a pineapple and pork dish fusing Mexican and Lebanese cooking.
PRO TIP: Don't ask for cheese and don't ask for sour cream. They don't have it. This is authentic Mexican street food, and the flavor is brought out best when it's marinated in lime, cilantro and onion.

PRICE RANGE: $3–$10
WHERE TO FIND IT: In front of the Badlander on Ryman St., Friday and Saturday nights from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
WORD ON THE STREET: On a recent Saturday night, eight or so of the patrons waiting for their tacos were laughing and speaking in their native Spanish. This is a truck that draws transplants from other countries as well as locals who want to reminisce about eating street food in the calles of Oaxaca during their study-abroad program.
