The Road To San Antone: Conan’s Pizza

by Robert Bostick

The wife had a conference in San Antonio and it was decided that we’d make it a family affair so we loaded up the KIA and headed South, thought it might be interesting to document some of the stops along the way.

This past Saturday was the first ever Downtown Frisco StrEATS Festival. It featured 10 of DFW’s food trucks and live music from the School of Rock and musician, Dave Thomas. The line-up included SoCal Tacos, The Butcher’s Son, Easy Sliders, Cajun Tailgators Truck, Zombie’s Food Truck, Ssahm BBQ, Nammi Food Truck, Rockstar Bakeshop, Eat JoDawgs, and the debut of Coolhaus, the specialty ice cream sandwich truck from LA. This was one of the few food truck events north of the Dallas area. A lot of people came out for the event and the space filled up very quickly.

It was a bright and sunny day and there were lines at the trucks before the event even started at 3PM. I was among the first people in line for Coolhaus at 2:50PM, waiting for them to officially open for business.   Continue reading
