The Pavilion Food Park & Events – Best Location for Food Trucks in Boerne, TX
Where: 826 Johns Road, Boerne, TX
The Best Place to find Great Food Trucks including Chilito’s Express, Latin Fusion Kitchen
Al Maldonado doesn’t sit still for long. As the owner of Chilito’s Express, Latin Fusion Kitchen, Al cooks, organizes and promotes. His latest venture: to draw more food trucks and clients to The Pavilion Food Park & Events location at Johns Road and Interstate I-10 West. As always, he’s doing a bang up job.
On a recent Saturday night, four food trucks offered a wide range of menu items — from seafood to sliders, from Peruvian quesadillas to chili dogs. I tried the Southwest Philly Cheesesteak sandwich from the Chef’s Kitchen truck out of Kerrville. I didn’t think I could finish the more than 1/2 lb. of tender beef, smothered in melted cheese, sauteed banana peppers, onions and jalapenos. But I managed. My husband enjoyed some of Al’s “Crazy Good Tamales” with his special Peruvian rice and beans. And my son wolfed down a huge cheeseburger also from the Chilito’s wagon.
Seeing how tips are appreciated but not required and you’re encouraged to BYOB, the delicious dinner for three set us back less than $25. Dinner and drinks in a lot of other Boerne hot spots would have been twice that. Add to that free, live entertainment and a children’s playground for those families with young ones, and you’ve got a deal.
A sampling of the other trucks includes:
Goodie Central (Bandera, TX) – Jalapeno Grill Cheese with cheddar cheese, provolone cheese, Black Forest ham with Tomato Crema or Hot Dawg, an all natural beef dog served Chicago style or anyway you like it.
Grill-N-Kitchen (Bandera, TX) – Shrimp Po Boys, Seafood Platters for Two and Pulled Pork Sandwich
Even though it was January and the temperature hovered in the low 50s, the glowing heaters, food and fellowship drew a crowd of 30 or so folks. I figure, when the weather warms up, this place will really will be a hit and Al will meet his goal of six food trucks on a regular basis.
