If you don\'t like this cart, there\'s something wrong with you. I don\'t know what this Ben Franklin guy is talking about, but I have never had anything that I didn\'t like. Maybe he just doesn\'t like Mexican food. And actually, the people that own the cart are from Puebla, Mexico.\n -MINI

Their tacos aren\'t tacos. All day I had been craving authentic tacos but when I opened my order it was fresher Taco Bell. Taco Bell does not make tacos, it puts some meat on a tortilla with lettuce and sour cream; Lucky\'s does the same. -Ben Franklin

There's a reason the garbanzo beans taste like Indian food. The truck is owned by the Indians who own Lovash--across the street from Lucky's restaurant near 3rd and South. This truck is a pretty sad excuse for mexican, though if I'm stuck on spruce street they make an decent chocolate mole to dress the otherwise bland enchiladas. -Neuronix

Maybe this place is better than MexiPhilly, which sucks.. I don't understand why people come here, honestly.. But it's still not great. Much better alternatives elsewhere on Spruce -Ben Franklin

Lucky's burritos are bigger and better than other burrito food carts and won't fall apart if you try to eat them on the run. The chicken they use is not shredded, but is actually in intact slices of breast meat, which makes it much tastier than mexiphilly. -Ben Franklin

Better than MexiPhilly and in a very convenient location, Lucky's produces some of the best burritos on campus. Just like MexiPhilly, the prices are quite reasonable, but there is sometimes a long line around lunchtime. -Abhi
