Rollin’ with Flavor: Introducing Davilas on Wheels at El Camino Food Truck Park

–News Direct–

Theres a new food truck in town, and its powered by third-generation pitmaster Adrian Davila! This award-winning restauranteur and cookbook author is taking his mouth-watering menu on the road with his new food truck, Davilas on Wheels.

Starting in July, Davilas on Wheels will join the lineup at the famed El Camino Food Truck Park. Adrians latest concept expands his family-owned restaurant with a fresh take on catering that includes Texas barbecue with a Latin spin. For Adrian, the food truck is a way to bring his family's barbecue tradition to new audiences in the city and allows him to share his passion with more people than ever before. Whenever we had the opportunity to be a vendor at the AT&T Center for the Spurs, we received a great reaction from the community of San Antonio. The Spurs reflect the people and culture of the city, and found they truly connected with our food and story. We were invigorated more with having a presence there and being a part of the rich history and are very excited to be a part in a new way.

The menu will be South Texas Tejano-inspired cuisine thats a mix of modern Mexican comfort food. What you would expect from the menu is something you enjoy from your abuelas kitchen but with a modern twist infused with the classic smoke and spice known from Davilas BBQ. Approachable and made for sharing, dine on items like peanut butter mole wings, lamb barbacoa tacos, brisket grilled cheese, and more!

Adrian Davila is a nationally-recognized barbecue restaurateur, chef, and pitmaster at the acclaimed Davila's BBQ in Seguin, TX. His grandfather, Raul Davila, opened Davilas in 1959, more than a half-century ago, and passed on the secrets of his smoked BBQ to Adrians father, Edward Davila. The Davilas are deeply proud of their Mexican-American roots and family tradition of creating the best barbecue in Texas.

Adrian credits his grandfather and father with teaching him the value of hard work. They laid a wonderful foundation and footprint for Davilas. They are men of little words, but their dedication to their business and family to put food on the tables has inspired me since I was young. My grandfather put in the early hours getting the restaurant started, and my father expanded into catering, and sought different opportunities for business. Their entrepreneurial spirit set me up and allowed me to be able to travel and cook all over the world, write a cookbook, and continue to expand the brand.

Most of his youth was spent in the kitchens of the barbecue restaurant, learning all the special techniques until he could prepare everything on the menu to perfection. Adrian still practices those skills today and has since created unique barbecue recipes for the restaurant and their extensive catering business, including his new venture, Davilas on Wheels.

Adrians cookbook Cowboy Barbecue: Fire & Smoke from the Original Texas Vaqueros is the perfect inspiration for your next backyard barbecue. He was also featured as a judge on the Travel Channels show American Grilled, as a contestant (and first-place winner) on the Food Network show BBQ Blitz Texas Takedown, as a guest chef on the Food Networks The Kitchen and as a judge on the Food Networks BBQ Kids Champion. Adrian is also frequently featured in publications, including the San Antonio Express-News, MySA, San Antonio Edible Magazine, and the Seguin Sizzle Gazette.

You can also find Davilas BBQ at the AT&T Center for the 2022-2023 Spurs Season and during the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo.

So if you're looking for some life-changing barbecue in San Antonio, check out Adrian Davila's new food truck. With his passion for barbecue and commitment to using the best ingredients possible, youll want to line up Thursday morning ahead of the rush for his next food truck appearance.

In 1959, Davila's BBQ was first opened by Raul Davila in an old abandoned school house in Seguin, TX. With no decorations and no cash register, the Davila family nestled in the back two rooms of the restaurant and opened for business. Nearly sixty years and three generations later, Davila's BBQ has continued to grow and been nationally recognized as one of the top BBQ places in Texas. Third generation Pitmaster Adrian Davila now leads the restaurant and continues the tradition with passed down family recipes. Adrian celebrates traditions of Latin America and Texas, taking inspiration from the vaquero lifestyle of his own family history, infusing classic brisket, ribs and sausage with Latin flavors and ingredients. In 2018 Adrian released his first cookbook, Cowboy Barbecue, which has been featured on the Today Show, The Washington Post, and Texas Monthly.
