Super family friendly with great food options. We enjoyed the pizza - one of the best margarita pizzas I have had outside of nyc and the Jersey shore. The juice was also very good and the people working here are so friendly and welcoming. They also had a dj spinning some background music to add to the nice atmosphere. Bring bug repellent.

We were recommended to go here from the owner of our hotel near by, and it was one of the tastiest dinners i've had in Tulum!

We ate at the burger van which was delicious, thin patty with a nice seedy bun and a help-yourself topping station.

I also couldn't resist the Patatas Bravas from the 'King of the Street' Van & it was the tastiest one i'd ever eaten!

Really reasonable prices, decent bar and lovely atmosphere in the evening with all the lights.

I have been to some food truck parks in different cities but this new food truck park in Tulum is a much needed addition for the local scene! It is certainly one of the very best produced food truck parks we have seen anywhere.
The installations are top notch, they have clean and new bathrooms, a full bar with really good cocktails, and the food is very good. We are very big fans of the AREPAS truck, they can be made vegan without the crema and the masa is delicious and flavorful, for a very reasonable price. There is pizza, hamburgers that we hear are great, and a truck where you can get Portuguese food, and juices.
The best part of this food truck is the playground, it is a new playground with nice grass so the children get a break from the gravel, and we can sit on the benches, sip a cocktail with other friends and watch our kids play while we spend an evening out. Saturday evenings have been full of Tulum community, so many friends with their kids come out, and sometimes live music.
One tip: bring mosquito repellent for you and the kids because sometimes Tulum outdoors in the evening is very full of mosquitoes but thats the only complaint. We love it!

We happened to stumble on Palma Central on our vacation to Tulum. We tried 3 of the food trucks and had a few drinks from the bar. The dumplings, pizza and wings were all top notch. Perfect place for families or large groups. Such a fun spot.

I have lived in Tulum for 16 years now and Palma Central is officially my favourite place in town. I LOVE it!!! We are a large group of friends, some with kids, some without, we have varied diets from carnivores to vegans along with allergies to gluten and lactose so going out for dinner used to be a bloody nightmare. Now its easy! Palma Central has such a wide range of food trucks that can cater for all diets and the central seating areas means that you can all order food from different places and still eat together. The big surprise is the well stocked bar where your friendly bar tender Memo makes a wide variety of cocktails that are not only delicious, but also very reasonably priced. There is a large kids playground so you can eat and have a few beers while the kids have a great time and there is a stage for live music on the weekends.

What more could you possibly need!
