Shukos is a Guatemalan food truck that’s especially good to know about if you want to briefly change up your lunch routine to something that involves cut-up hot dogs on homemade corn tortillas. It lives on the corner of 41st and 3rd Avenue, and you can get a ton of food for under $10 - including the mixtas tortilla and a pile of fries with steak and mayo on them.
