What Did You Order?: El Fuego Burger (w/o bun), sweet potato fries, and an order of Tequenos •

I cannot resist a burger with fried egg and potato stix! The El Fuego burger was super delicious, the sweet potato fries were nice and thin (I am not a fan of the fat potato wedges)and extra crispy (and neither greasy nor soggy!), and the tequenos were honestly one of the best things I have ever tasted in my life! All the food was perfectly seasoned (not too salty or overloaded with seasonings) and tasted fabulous! I gave only 4 stars because I was specifically asked how I would like my burger cooked, and I replied "Well done, please," but was given a burger that was still pink and even red in some spots. It was still amazing, and that will not stop me from coming back to El Fuego again. Plus, those sauces are incredible!


Excellent Pan con Chicharron pork sandwich! Will have to get it again, tons of flavor!

Wow, this is some of the best food I've eaten off a truck yet. Flavors were spot on and every bite was delicious. Even the sweet potato fries were great. Definitely going to go back to try more off their menu! Make sure you take a look at the Specials, they have some great options on there as well. Service was a little slow but they were busy and the wait was well worth it.

The ceviche was flavorful as well, and very tasty. I will definitely eat at El Fuego again and again!

I'm usually not a review writer but something this good is worth writing about! I tried this truck for the first time this afternoon and the Classic Cheviche Mixto was awesome! The folks on the truck were very nice and mingled with their customers! That's the way to promote your business! That personal touch goes a long way in my book. I can't wait to try them again.

What Did You Order?: Ceviche & Pan con Chicharron • 
Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: Yes • 
How Much Did It Cost?: $14 for both items 

I usually only post reviews to express what poor value or how not gourmet some food truck's product is when it is advertised to be otherwise.

However, the ceviche was fantastic and was a very reasonable portion for $6. Flavors were balanced perfectly and I couldn't believe how fresh it was. I wouldn't normally get ceviche from a truck, but I also don't normally see ceviche being sold from a truck either, so I tried it out and I'm very glad I did.

The Pan con Chicharron sandwich was awesome. For $8 you get a massive sandwich with very good quality ingredients. Everything tastes fresh and the amount of meat on the sandwich is really generous. I'm not used to getting a sandwich for $8 with well over a half lb of meat on it. I'm sitting at my desk still trying to finish it.

I didn't get to try the daily special, which was a stewed goat, but I'll definitely try the truck the next time they're in the area. Very nice service too. Really glad to see a new option serving a reasonably priced, quality product. Hopefully my next experience is as good as my first.

Wow it's been a while since I've had an outstanding Lomo Saltado, the beef was seasoned to perfection and omg so tender! The french fries and rice is how they always serve this dish EVERYWHERE but THIS is authentic Peruvian Flavor and I will be back!


maybe I just tried the wrong dish. But, the beef was nothing special. Not much flavor in the beef itself and nothing special about how it was cooked.

maybe I just tried the wrong dish. But, the beef was nothing special. Not much flavor in the beef itself and nothing special about how it was cooked. The beef was bland in flavor and the texture was merely ok. Nothing really peruvian about the flavor or texture. The fries were tasty...but, do you really want fries AND rice for lunch? Not me. The stir fry came with tomato, peppers, and red oninion...that was the best part of the meal. But, even they were simply stir fried without much spice or char. Wish I tried the pork sandwich...I might give that a try before I give up on this truck.

The food was delicious. The first time I tried their food, I tried the pan con chicharron, which was delicious and also had a small smaple of the ceviche. The next time I visited the truck -like I said I would-I ordered the cevishe which was delicious. Thanks for the consistency!

I've been waiting for a Peruvian truck for a long time. Gracias! I'm not a big fan of chicharron because it's usually too dry for my liking, but the pan con chicharron was so tender - done perfectly! My only suggestion would be more El Fuego sauce.

El Fuego is bringing delicious authentic Peruvian cuisine to DC and Virginia.  The food truck is themed as a fire truck and looks really sharp!
