FYABES, a newer Forks restaurant in a cute little chartreuse food truck, is located at the north end of Forks WA, across the street from Sully's and next door to Far West Motel. You can't miss the bright green of the stationary truck. Six members of the family run the business, and their first name initials were combined into the name of the business: FYABES. 

The food rates a whole bunch of stars. On the menu are: street tacos, burritos, tamales, tortas (in bolillo bread), quesadillas with and without 'carne,'  Mexican sodas, and more. This is authentic Mexican cuisine, some of the best I've ever tasted. We'll be back as soon as possible.

Yes, it is a kiosk. Yes, it has two windows, one for northbound and one for southbound.

This Forks restaurant is a wonderful, small-town burger joint with many tasty menu options, all of them delish. Notice the pleasant little gift shop inside the restaurant while you’re there. This is another of my favorite haunts in Forks.
