As Tevye sings, the Columbus Food Truck Show has become “Tradition”. I know it’s only been happening for two years but we have had a good time stomping around the commons, enjoying the people zoo and trying some new eats. We actually tripled our truck fare in our second year and while they couldn’t all be great we did make a couple of finds. We probably had more that was mediocre but that just comes with more, we also had more tastiness. We snacked at The Good Frank, Holy Smoke BBQ, The Coop, Nicolasa’s, The Burrito Bus and Gigi’s Cupcakes This is The Burrito Bus.



The Bus Is Busy

The bus had quite a line working through the day and we sort of got it in our noggins that if we were going to add some tacos to our day, they would be from the bus. We ordered the smaller Nachos Gringos and two Rockin’ Tacos. The nachos didn’t do much for me, but my companions liked them. I liked them too but for me they were about equal to what you would find at Progressive Field and I like to expect something more from a food truck. Everything at the bus comes with an option from “The Farm” Mesquite Grilled Chicken, Seasoned Ground Beef or Shredded Pork and whatever else you would like to add from “The Yard” rice, black beans, cheese, lettuce, fresh jalapenos, onion, salsa, sour cream, tomato, and guacamole.

Our nachos were chicken with nacho cheese plus black beans, salsa and sour cream. The guy adding toppings actually dumped the entire plate of nachos into the cold table and I was sure he was stacking them back on the plate to hand out the window but he did start over which was nice to see, especially as hammered as they had been all day.

Nacho's Gringos

Two "Rockin" Tacos

The tacos were better, soft flour tortillas with blotches of brown toastiness were filled, one chicken, one beef, cheese, lettuce and salsa. Their salsa was bright and fresh, the mesquite chicken was the same as on the nachos and the beef was really well seasoned and had a nice texture. I would have expected reheated dry crumbly nasty on a day like today but found something better. The burrito bus served a lot of solid Americanized Mexican fare over a couple of days. It wasn’t really memorable but it does cure hunger in a satisfactory way.
