Check out writer Paula Gonzalez’s article to learn about where to find her favorite food truck and what to order to have the best experience.

Take your Taco Tuesday ritual and throw it out the window, and while you’re at it, throw away the whole window too. Instead, head on over to 2625 Johnson Drive, where La Loma’s Mexican Food Truck awaits—conveniently located in the parking lot of the Contractors’ Warehouse. Now you can enjoy some of Ventura’s authentic food, and buy your mom that french window she always wanted. La Loma is open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., as well as 9:30 am to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Any schedule changes and saliva-inducing food images can be found on their Instagram, under @lalomamexicanfood

La Loma offers tacos, burritos, quesadillas, quesatacos and mulitas. Five simple, but essential, tasty food options. Protein selection includes: al pastor, carne asada, buche, chorizo, pollo, cabeza and lengua. Tacos are priced at $2 each, with both burritos and quesadillas marked at $6. There is, however, an additional $1 upcharge for burritos and quesadillas that contain cabeza and lengua. Beverage options include Jarritos (Mexican soda,) a classic Coca-Cola bottle and other refreshing canned sodas. Drinks are priced between $1-2.50. One should be aware that the truck accepts cash only. Below are just a few mentioned meals that highlight the truck’s authenticity and quality of food. 

Now, you can’t exactly go wrong with a burrito, but you definitely can go right with a La Loma burrito. Keeping it classy, carne asada burritos are well worth the price at this food truck. They don’t come in any small size, and are still tasty as leftovers. They’re filled to the brim with just the right amount of tender, juicy meat. To top it off, their salsa and diced onions fully envelopes the flavor by adding a good kick of spicy heat. If their burritos meet standards with just carne asada, then they’ll definitely meet expectations with other protein selections.

Going for something different but remaining as comfort food, chicken or chorizo quesadillas and mulitas are perfect. While quesadillas are warmed on the grill, providing stringy, gooey cheese, mulitas are fried in oil, making it a crispy cheese snack. The chicken is soft and flavorful, pairing very well with a quesadilla. Delightfully simple, this option is great as introductory food or just as something different. Chorizo works as an extra kick, especially acting as an upgrade to the mulita. It doesn’t lack any tomato sauce or salsa, definitely being a juicy meal. 

La Loma is most notably distinguished by their al pastor meat, seen roasting with pineapple on a trompo through the truck’s window. With a nice smoky, marinade finish, the al pastor leaves a savory aftertaste. All tacos are served with a side of radishes, grilled jalapeños and onions.

La Loma has been enthusiastically serving Ventura County since 1995, always preparing their food with passion. Next year La Loma’s Mexican Food Truck will be celebrating 20 years at their Contractor’s Warehouse location. With their quality having never diminished, their small business is worth checking out
