Krush Burger, Sacramento's most pioneering food truck, announced in Sept. that they would be adding a brick and mortar location in the River District (off Richards Blvd.). Now they have an opening date for their new location -- Jan. 9 (and they're hiring too).
As much as I like chasing mobile food trucks around the city, I'm glad that another one has found a stable place to sell their food from.
Speaking of mobile food vendors finding a more permanent home, El Matador Mobile Mex, a food truck who doesn't visit the downtown region enough, is teaming up with the VFW hall in Folsom to serve food every Tuesday. According to their owner in an interview earlier in the week, they already use the space as their commisary, and have added regular food service. They will continue to operate the rest of the time as a standard food truck, including their weekly Thursday visits to the Loomis Basin Brewery.
Matador is going Brick & Mortar! We are teaming up with VFW 6604 1300 Forrest St. in Folsom to provide delicious food and drink! Catch us tonight for Taco Tuesday and some ridiculous drink specials. Happy Hour 4-7!
Beers on draft for $1.75 (Wow!!!)
And, a Margarita pitcher for only $12, that's right......$12 bucks!!
