Riding off of George Lewis’ post, announcing the hot arrival of a new burrito food truck, I’m happy to report that Texas Burrito Company’s food is, indeed, everything he had hoped for.
Last night, I was invited to an event at the Community Brewing Company to sample Two Trucks’ newest addition to its food truck family, Texas Burrito Company. Texas Burrito Company serves burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads, which all scream Mexican with a little bit of Texan on the side. I ordered the Rio Grande, a flour tortilla stuffed with Monterey Jack cheese, brown or white rice, black beans, sweet barbacoa pork, topped with a green chile sauce. Oh man, was this not your average Chipotle burrito. The sweet barbacoa pork paired with the spicy green chile sauce made for the perfect combination of pure burrito goodness. My friend ordered the Amarillo By Morning burrito, which comes with a flour tortilla, queso fresco, brown or white rice, black beans, green chili chicken and roasted garlic with tomatillo sauce and a sour cream drizzle. If you’re into the plain-jane chicken burrito thing, then this is the burrito for you. It’s nothing crazy-adventurous yet still delicious.
As if burritos weren’t filling enough, Two Trucks also brought their What’s Da Scoop? food truck to the Community Brewing Company. When people say, “Everything is bigger in Texas,” they aren’t kidding, and What’s Da Scoop? isn’t messing around with their portion size either. I ordered the Cool, Calm, and Collected specialty cone, consisting of vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, sea salt, topped with crushed Nilla Wafers. The dulce de leche was oozing off of the cone and the Nilla Wafers were crumbling down the enormous mountain of vanilla ice cream. Luckily, it isn’t any trouble to lick it clean when ice cream tastes that delicious.
