Border Grill Truck

By in 21: Food truck

More food trucks! Popular Mexican restaurant Border Grill has joined in the rising food truck scene. I haven’t been to Border Grill before (only been to one of the owners’ other place: Street). My coworkers who live at the west side like the place but said it’s way too crowded all the time so they don’t go there anymore. Seems like the truck is a good opportunity for me to try their tacos.

Yucatan Pork Taco – braised achiote pork, black beans, pickled onion, orange jicama slaw $2.50
At first I was a bit surprise to find out the price is only for one taco. It was a very delicious taco indeed, the pork was good and the orange was a nice touch.

Carne Asada Taco -caramelized onion, salsa fresca, guacamole. My coworker found it so-so. The guacamole was delicious though.
I also got Crispy Baja Fish Taco (not in picture) – chipotle honey, creamy salsa fresca which I like a lot too. Both cost $3 each.

Cumin Fries – parsley, cumin, chipotle ketchup is so-so.
Carne AsadaQuesadilla – caramelized onion, guajillo salsa

Even though I enjoyed the food a lot, I felt that it’s quite a pricey meal for a food truck. Their price is definitely one of the highest so far, and unlike other trucks they also charge tax. I was caught off guard a bit as I had just enough cash for the price listed, so that’s something to beware of.

    I think this truck came to the parking at BNS before, the food wasn’t that bad but it seems like I needed to spend at least 15 bucks to be full…

    This will probably piss off a lot of people, but I’m not a big fan of their food. I’ve been to Ciudad more times than I can count and was never impressed. The two times I went to Street were ok — better than Ciudad. Because of this, I was never too interested in trying Border Grill…until this past weekend in Vegas (of all places) because I had a $25 off coupon.

    It was decent. I think I would’ve been angry without the $25 off.
