San Antonio Food Truck Showdown

Here at The Box Street Social, we don’t mind participating in some healthy competition. Last year we took part in the San Antonio Food Truck Showdown hosted by egCollaborations & sponsored by San Antonio Magazine. We were honored to be granted 1st place in the People Choice Award, two times in a row. This year, we will participate in the 3rd Annual San Antonio Food Truck Showdown on October 28th from 11am-4pm at Alamo Beer.

1st Annual San Antonio Food Truck Showdown at Alamo Beer

The first Food Truck Showdown took place at Alamo Beer Hall where six different food trucks prepared our fare for the public to try. We entered our Pulled Pork Sandwich entree into the race. This braised pulled pork sandwich is served in a sweet poppy seed bun on a bed of sweet slaw, topped with chipotle bbq sauce and house made pickles. Pair this with an Alamo Beer Pale Ale and you have got a winner for sure. Surprisingly, that is exactly what happened. The people cast their votes and we took home the award of San Antonio’s #1 Food Truck for the People’s Choice Award.

Later in the day SA’s Top Instagram Foodies judged to find out who would win the top Foodie Flavor Award. Sadly we did not take first place, but another just as worthy food truck did, Umamita. They focus on organic, locally grown and free from GMO’s, hormones and antibiotics food.

2nd Annual San Antonio Food Truck Showdown at UIW

We came back to defend our title as San Antonio’s #1 Food Truck at the second San Antonio Food Truck Showdown. This time the competition took place at the University of the Incarnate Word. We came to win again, but this time with our stuffed avocados. This entree consists of stuffed avocados with either spicy crab or pulled pork. The Spicy Crab is served on an avocado sliced in half with cream cheese and topped off with green onions and sesame seeds. The Pulled Pork Avocado is stuffed with our braised pork, and topped with chipotle BBQ sauce and fresh cilantro.

After everyone tried what the food trucks had to offer, and the votes were counted, we won again! Being San Antonio’s #1 Food Truck for the People’s Choice Award is something we hold close to our heart. We make food for the San Antonio community, and we wouldn’t be successful without the love the city gives us each and every day. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, San Antonio!

Get To Know Daniel Trevino

At The Box Street Social, there is no I, there is only we. The creation, execution and future of The Box Street Social is all a result of team work. A strong and essential member of this team work is restaurateur, Daniel Trevino. His role as part owner and entrepreneur is crucial for the everyday activities of The Box Street Social. So, lets learn more about this important and awesome guy!

About Daniel Trevino

At the age of 13, Daniel Trevino and his family found growth, opportunity and success in the city of San Antonio. It was within this time frame that Daniel was exposed to the restaurant industry. His father worked as a manager at a local restaurant and would teach his sons how to do well within the business. At first, Daniel felt that the culinary field wasn’t for him.

Daniel’s education was received at Clark High School and Texas State University where he double majored in Mass Communication Marketing and Spanish. His first desire was to be on TV and broadcasting on Spanish stations. Luckily, Daniel’s brother contacted him in 2006 with dreams of opening a restaurant in Harlingen, Texas. Of course, Daniel answered to his brothers calling and together, with dad’s help, they opened La Playa Mexican Café.

This was the “ah ha!” moment for Daniel Trevino. This was his passion. This is what he loved to do. From that moment on, he moved in to the restaurant industry as a professional restaurateur. He felt importance not only for himself but the community around the eatery to bring the best service and food to that culture.

Daniel Trevino and Edward Garcia III

In 2013 Daniel moved Downtown to be closer to the culinary transformation starting in the heart of San Antonio. There, he joined a gym and met this cool guy named Edward Garcia III, and they instantly became friends. Once they found out that they both shared enthusiasm for the culinary field, an idea was formed to open a restaurant together. Daniel provided the managerial, financial, and operations experience while Edward provided the talent and chef driven fare; it was destined to become a success.

The creation of The Box Street Social started out as an idea. Kinda like, “hey, we should do this one day.” But Daniel decided that the one day would come soon enough after he saw Edward’s magic at a Sunday Social event. The Sunday Socials were tastings that Chef Edward would host to share his talent with close friends and family. But Daniel saw this as an opportunity. Edward had the ability to serve a mass quantity of people all by himself without losing the flavor or quality of his food. As a culinary professional, Daniel saw this as a rare talent and knew that The Box Street Social was ready to go.

The two men became the perfect dynamic, like Kanye and Kanye. They both have the drive to ensure that The Box Street Social is not only successful in the present but also the future. When we asked Daniel what his favorite meal from The Box Street Social he stated that this week it was the Pulled Pork Avocado, but before that it was the Thai Chili Wings, and before that it was the Fish Tacos.

Of course though, this power couple is ready for the future. Currently, the team of The Box Street Social is searching for the perfect building for a storefront. This is a very careful process. Both, Edward and Daniel, have high expectations and requirements for this location. The Box Street Social restaurant must be in a location that reflects the qualities of community, culture and food.
