LaDelicia food truck sits on Pio Nono Avenue

La Delicia Food Truck serving on Pio Nono Avenue

Macon is home to a food truck that's been dishing out authentic El Salvadorean cuisine for close to a year now.

LaDelicia does a brisk business now, but it took a little bit of time for folks to saunter up to the trailer in the back of the parking lot.


Ana Reyes usually opens up the restaurant in the morning and recalls a time when the whole day moved pretty slowly.

"In the beginning, it was just me and my mom and my uncle, and we were just sitting inside just waiting. Now it's like we can't sit down," she said with a big smile.

The family with El Salvador roots isn't complaining.


"My mom puts a lot of hard work into this business. She literally lives here," Ana said about her mom, also named Ana.

You can spring for some horchata -- it's a drink that tastes like sweet milk.

And there are some other things on the menu that may spark your curiosity with roots in the family's ethnic background.

"With papusas, yes, they always ask what that is, and once they try it, they always come back and get more," the younger Ana said. "Papusas is our main dish from El Salvador, and basically, it's like a homemade tortilla and it just has filling inside of it. We make different kinds -- we make bean and cheese, pork and cheese. "


You can also go with something more familiar like tacos or burritos. The only thing is when you order it, they make it, so give yourself a few minutes if you stop by for a meal.


If you're looking to find these guys, they're at 3430 Pio Nono Avenue.  They said they're still debating on whether they're going to do something big for their one-year anniversary coming up in August.  

LaDelicia is open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. most days.

Ana says they do leave early on Wednesday nights and they're closed on Sundays.

Most things on the menu are under $5.
