People are enjoying the grassy area to sit and eat. This is really nice to have at the Food Pod.

Treehouse Burger – Two 5 oz. beef patties with 16 spice house blend, cheese, sauteed onions, mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, mayo, fresh arugula.

This monster of the burger will definitely fill you up and make your stomach happy. The burger is so tasty because of the spice blend.

Red Eye BBQ

The Doophin – A Texas Toast grilled cheese w/ hot dog, brisket, onion rings

I watched this custom order come out and HAD to take a photo.

The customer @TheDoofin who created it says: “Imagine, if you will, you are about to experience an epic meal. At first you get a taste of perfectly buttered and toasty bread, followed by a rush of gooey cheese. Next is the the smoky, savory flavor of tender brisket mixed with onion rings in all their crunchy and sweet goodness. Last but not least, you get the saltiness of a grilled hot dog. And in one singular moment these flavors all combine into grilled cheese perfection. Now quit imagining and go to Red Eye BBQ Truck and order up The Doofin. Finally, your life will be complete.”

The Crooked Spoon

‘420 burger’ – candied spicy bacon, honey whole grain mustard, fried onion ring, pineapple relish, swiss cheese

This was a hit this night. I tasted it and have to agree, it was awesome.

Korean BBQ Taco Box

Spicy Pork taco box

Always a popular stop is the Korean BBQ Taco Box truck. Here is a box meal with sides. Try the spicy pork taco, one of my favorites here.

Big Wheel Truck

Smoked Lardo Toast
This basically was like butter on toast. There is a technical process of how the Lardo is made, in short its pork fat that Big Wheel Truck has worked their magic on and it is delicious. If someone really wants to know, I can do a follow up. Leave a comment below…
