Due to construction concerns the food trucks on Flora that were located between the Myerson and Winspear on Flora have moved just a city street away to the vacant lot at Flora and Leonard.

Chef David McMillan reports that his pig cart located in front of his restaurant Screen Door has taken on more customers each day. McMillan offers a plate of smoked pork and trimmings for less than $8, making it a true bargain for quick lunch time diners in the area.               Continue reading

Meet The Truck: TX Delizioso

by Steven Doyle

There have been a slew of new food trucks popping up across both Dallas and Fort Worth giving anyone who follows the truck dining scene more options. When the food truck phenomenon  first began it looked like the stereotype to beat was the taco. There are plenty of plays on just about anything wrapped in a tortilla at any truck gathering, so many are now choosing to sway from a typical choice of fare.

Looking at what will be offered in the near future we have spoken with a few that will have some kicked up options and soon we will be enjoying our first Indian cuisine truck. But we ran across a truck this past weekend that at first glance appeared to be running the ordinary but upon closer inspection was nothing of the sort. Enter TX Delicioso a truck whose mainstay is pizza but offers much more.    Continue reading
