City Pages' Description

The Barrio Truck doesn't offer the long list of tequila that the bricks-and-mortar stores do, but it serves some of the restaurants' same chef-driven Latin street food, including the carnitas and lengua tacos, plus several wheels-only exclusives. The street-only options include a hefty barbacoa burrito, soft-shell crab torta, and a Mexican-style hot dog that draws inspiration, according to the guy taking orders in the window, from a bona-fide south-of-the-border snack. Think of it as a Latin chili dog: The all-natural beef hot dog comes topped with bacon, beans, roasted poblano peppers, pico de gallo, and mustard. The dog can be a mega mess for hand-held eating, but the fresh salsa is a nice alternative to ketchup. The soft-shell crab taco, another truck exclusive, is a variation on the restaurants' signature Tecate-battered mahi mahi. The crab adds a pleasant crunch to a pair of soft corn tortillas, and the spicy rub on the crustacean is cooled by a blend of watercress, a sweet tomatillo-watermelon pico de gallo, and avocado cream. Round it out with a side of chips and guacamole and a Jarritos soda, and you'll feel like you just had a lunch-break-length vacation.
