Alamo Street Eat-Bar: What to eat when you can (seemingly) eat anything

Jason Dady talks to a Duk Truck customer at Alamo Street Eat-Bar.


The Duk Truck: Jason Dady's Duk Truck's menu includes banh mi and duck tacos. Dady's been known to make some delicious food, and his endeavors here don't disappoint. A moist baguette eliminates the need to fight a crumb war with the banh mi, though Sriracha sauce is essential.

Wheelie Gourmet: The lone Greek-inspired truck at the Eat-Bar, Wheelie offers several variances on your classic lamb gyro. The "OG" is a delight, with pita bread, lamb full of flavor, and your traditional spring mix, feta cheese, and pickled onions, all drizzled in homemade tzatziki sauce.  

Where Y'at Food Truck: New Orleans Street Food has found a home on South Alamo. Serving up fresh beignets and café au lait, it's an easy choice to get a head start on that hangover cure. If you're hungry for more, you're in for a treat. The BBQ shrimp has to be eaten to be believed: head on, served over broth and crusted bread.  

Of course, food is only one half of the equation here at the Eat-Bar. Offering 14 Texas-Centric beers on tap, the bar is the ace in the hole for this food trailer park, ranging from cheap comfort brews such as Lone Star and Pabst Blue Ribbon to more refined fare such as Lawnmower, Ranger Creek Lucky Ol' Sun, and 512 Wit.

"People love to be outside," says Jody Newman, a concept that she has tapped into with great success. The Alamo Street Eat-Bar looks to continue this tradition with its excellent location, quality food, and ice-cold Texas beer. •
