C&S Brisket Bus Sliders at upcoming Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival 2012

It’s coming, brisket on the beach! The popular Orlando food truck C&S Brisket Bus will be heading down to Miami’s South Beach to serve their sliders and more sandwiches at the closing party for the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival 2012. The festival runs from February 23-26 and C&S Brisket Bus will be joining more gourmet food trucks on Feb. 26th at The Official Festival Closing Party “Trucks on the Beach” hosted by Andrew Zimmern.

The event will feature food from a number of Miami food trucks and food carts, with the C&S Brisket Bus solely representing Orlando. This is a sneak peak on one of the menu items they plan to serve during the festival’s closing party. The Brisket Bus team decided on serving 2 sliders as samples of their popular sandwiches, The Rachel and The Reuben. I got a taste of the slider duo during a recent event and it is a perfect bite to sample both sandwiches. The meat to bread ratio is on point, with just the right amount of complimenting components and sauce.

The Rachel was the first sandwich I tried from the Brisket Bus and is still my favorite. The house made pastrami is paired well with creamy cole slaw. It is definitely a good match.

This is a Reuben sandwich with the classic flavors found at many quality American style delis.

About C&S Brisket Bus

The guys at C&S Brisket Bus make all of their meats and condiments from scratch. They use the same process that has been used in the tradition of the American Deli since the early 1900’s. The product is made as it was in the original process, curing the brisket for 3 weeks in a recipe that was used by the original American Deli’s.

They do not compromise quality, they never have and never will.  As a result, they occasionally go extended periods of time without pastrami on the menu. This makes the people who love the product, but do not understand the process, very mad. It would be easier, cheaper and more readily available for the Brisket Bus to go to the restaurant supply store and buy mass produced factory pastrami, but in turn would undermine their integrity and there would be no point of that. Simply put, they make everything in house and will only serve the best products. This is the real deal in brisket and pastrami, make sure to try the sliders at the festival or have a whole sandwich at a local food truck event.

  • I am craving a Rachel after seeing this. We don’t have food trucks here. It’s such a shame.

  • The Rachel is awesome! Make sure to stop by the Brisket Bus if you ever are in Orlando 🙂 Food truck culture is spreading like wild fire, so hopefully it hits your city soon!
