Mr Sizzles - Guac-ing Dead

Truck: Mr. Sizzles
Location: Baileson Brewing Company, 2322 Bissonnet Street Houston, TX
Date: September 23, 2017

Mr. Sizzles was one of the first trucks I ever reviewed for this blog back in 2013. Back then their menu featured stuffed burgers. They were good but because they take longer to cook and more meat I'm guessing they were a problem to cook fast.  The menu has now changed to doubles and singles with big flavor toppings.

Guac-ing Dead burger
Guac-ing Dead - (single) $10 (double) $13

Loaded with fresh guacamole that tames the jalapenos. Blue cheese crumbles brighten up what could be a lot of "soft" flavors. Honestly I didn't even notice the spicy ranch dressing. The bun was a nicely toasted brioche bun. Fresh lettuce and tomato complete the ensemble. Synopsis: A solid fresh burger.

Clutch City Fries
Clutch City Fries - $10

More a meal than a side. Fries topped with a chopped burger patty, crispy bacon, pickled jalapenos, Monterrey Jack and Cheddar cheese, guacamole, and ranch dressing. Its a good combination but eat it fast, the cheese turns hard fast and is less appealing. This is easily a meal, a big meal. I guess the one thing i would change is making a cheese sauce instead of melting cheese. I think it would be nicer towards the end of the meal instead of hard cheese. Or return to its Houston roots and add queso, we do love our queso in Clutch City. Synopsis: Eat'em while they're hot.

Wylie St. Tacos - Green Chili Quesadilla

Truck: Wylie St. Tacos
Location: BAKFISH Brewing Company, 1231 Broadway St., Pearland, Texas
Date: September 15, 2017

Pardon the dust, its been about 18 months since my last review. I'm trying to get back into the groove of regular reviews. Look for more coming soon. I've never stopped eating from food trucks, just got out of the habit of writing the reviews.

Green Chili Quesadilla with Pork

Wylie St. Tacos has a pretty simple menu. Tacos with your choice of beef, pork, or chicken, and quesadillas with your choice of beef, pork, or chicken. I always think a quesadilla is one of your best food values so I got the green chili quesadilla with marinated pork. I wasn't disappointed it was a healthy size. Mine was nicely browned and very crisp. Loaded with cheese too. the green chilis had a nice amount of heat and there was a satisfying amount of pork. The cheese in this makes it plenty filling. Plenty for two to split if you want a light meal. I often finish up my wife's order when she is through but this wasn't an option this time, I was stuffed. Synopsis: Solid execution and a great value.
