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!
