An LA Food Truck Serves Up A Heaping Helping Of Mobile Comfort Food
It's getting harder and harder to start a new and unique Los Angeles food truck. Everything from ice cream to gourmet Latin fare has already been taken. Now you can scratch Southern BBQ off the list, thanks to the Barbie's Q truck that's been rolling around the city.
John Bowler's restaurant on wheels usually hangs out on the westside, though a glace at @BarbiesQ shows they've also been putting in decent time on the Miracle Mile and around USC. There's an embedded Google Map on the main site that's supposed to be up to date, but you should still check Twitter for up-to-the-minute updates.
The sandwich menu starts with Hot Links at $5.95 and goes to Tri-Tip at $8.95. There's a sides menu of yams, beans, and something called cobblers. Both the website and various internet reviews strongly advise leaving room for the heaping side helpings, which offset sandwiches exactly the way they're supposed to.
Individual ribs can be bought for $2.25 for the St. Louis ribs and $2.50 for the Baby Back. If you buy 6 or more of either you get a 25 cent discount per piece. That's more than enough incentive for us.
