The Lime Truck

The Lime Truck Food brand was built on PASSION. Daniel Shemtob (Owner, Head Chef) invested every last bit of his blood, sweat, tears, and savings into this simple concept: deliver amazing food, use quality ingredients, make things from scratch, keep it healthy, and make the experience great from start to finish.

Since our inception in June 2010, The Lime Truck has whipped up a whirlwind of palate-pleasing Cali-Mexican cuisine that has earned us a bevy of local and national accolades, including being the Winner of Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race,” as well as Yahoo!’s “Top 10 Trucks in America.” Owner and visionary, Daniel Shemtob (Zagat 30 under 30 Award Winner), keeps mouths watering with local, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients, paired with hip, inventive recipes.

The Lime Truck Food currently offers a half dozen food trucks available for events throughout Southern California – from Santa Barbara to San Diego and Palm Springs to the ocean.  We also have two TLT Food brick and mortar locations in Westwood, CA and Irvine, CA.

Ethically Sourced Menu

The Lime Truck Food is proud to reveal, to all its loyal customers, our NEW ethically-sourced, vegan-friendly menu from farms with LOVE! From our Naked Truth All Natural Marinated Chicken Breast to our Aspen ridge Sweet and Spicy Steak, and our Beelers Slow Braised & Seasoned Pork Belly, all our meats are now hormone and antibiotic-free. Our fish are all wild caught. Our veggies are all locally sourced, and we are confident you will lose it over our new addition: IMPOSSIBLE MEAT Tacos and Bowls! That’s right! We are super VEGAN-FRIENDLY.

Words from our Chef and Founder, Daniel Shemtob
