Worth the Wait in Line? At peak lunch time, a total 16 minutes from the end of the line to food in hand.
Some trucks fall under the radar for different reasons. Some are sleepers with menus that may not read as well as the food is prepared, while others simply confound with names that are hard to remember. Such is the case with Fins on the Hoof, a food truck that we called something else almost every time it came up in conversation. Hoof and Fin. Fin Hook. Fish Hoof. But don't spend too much time worrying about the name and you'll find some damn fine cooking.
