So, there I was at the Pioneer Day Festivities in Monticello, Utah looking for something for lunch. All the food vendors serving Navajo food items had long lines; I continued walking around to see what else might be available. Tucked in the back of Veterans Memorial Park was this bright yellow food truck with bright red lettering on the side...Quesadilla Mobilla. Now I'd seen this same truck in Moab, but either just had a meal, or not hungry at the time; there were only two other people on line, so here was my chance to try them out.
The first quesadilla that captured my attention was "The Southern Belle"; it was the beef mixed with sweet potatoes that made my taste senses take extreme notice.
Shredded beef slow cooked in a special blend of spices and red chile! Topped with cheddar/jack cheese, sauteed corn, sauteed onions and roasted spicy sweet potatoes! Try this one with chipotle/lime sour cream.
Regular (10 inch) $8.50, Large $10.50
Oh my, oh my; this was a most awesomely delicious quesadilla. The regular is a 10 inch tortilla and stuffed! I enjoyed half of it for lunch, and the rest was dinner later on; just as good too.

The shredded beef was tender and so flavorful; the sweet potatoes were cooked perfectly; the entire quesadilla was perfect! Even though I did get sour cream on the side, I didn't need it; I don't believe it would have enhanced the flavors, rather it would have hidden them. I did try the homemade green salsa that was offered; it did add to the overall flavor, but I still liked "The Southern Belle" as it was.
Quesadilla Mobilla has its home base in Moab, Utah; when not at its location on Main Street, you can find them at the weekly Farmers Market, flea markets or events going on in Grand, San Juan or other local counties.
Now here's the sad news, I was told by a Moab local that in the winter months, Quesadilla Mobilla is not allowed to be open for business. Big disappointment! Perhaps they should contact the City of Monticello and see if they can be open up there; I bet the locals would eat them up!
Anyway, if you're looking for a unique experience with quesadillas; are in the Moab area, or see this food truck at an event; try them out!!! I was so glad I did.
Update: I have been informed by the owners that the closure in the winter months is by choice, not dictated by the City of Moab. They work truly hard to please the public with their awesome quesadilla selections, so use the winter months to have a well deserved rest.
