The Corn Man is quickly blowing up into the one of the most popular street food destinations on the Eastside. Just last night, lines stretched into the dozens, with some waiting over 35 minutes to get a taste of the delectable $1.50 elote served on a stick or cut into a bowl.

When asked whether this was unusual, it certainly was for a Wednesday, though weekend lines can easily be this long. Timoteo, the elotero, was starting to run out by around 10 p.m. last night, so it's recommended that you go earlier rather than later for a taste of this fantastic elote.
