If you’ve only been following Rickshaw Stop for a short period of time, you may not realize that we like to bring our truck to a lot of events supporting local craft breweries. For example, you will find our truck this Saturday (March 8) at Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling for their 1st Quarter Open House << RSVP HERE >> Next Saturday (March 15) we will be posted up with our good friends at Branchline Brewing Co. for their open house.

No matter how you spin it, food trucks & craft breweries compliment each other perfectly. Whether the brewery asks the food truck to incorporate their beer into a menu item or if the menu items are simply being paired with different varieties of beer: it all works!

We haven’t even mentioned how the culture you find at breweries matches perfectly with the food truck world. We are like a giant network–NO–a giant family that support each other in a fascinating symbiotic relationship.
San Antonio Beer Week is coming up May 10-18th and you will be pleased to find a significant amount of events that will be including local San Antonio food trucks. Be sure to follow on Facebook and/or Twitter to stay up to date on when everything will be happening.
But we’ve got to be honest: there’s no way we could have done this without YOU.
Thank YOU for ‘taking a chance on that Pakistani truck’ and finding out that yea…you really DO enjoy ‘ethnic’ food! Thank YOU for telling all of your friends about us. Thank YOU for explaining our menu to new customers while you wait in line. Thank YOU for posting your reviews of our food/customer service on Yelp, Urbanspoon, Google and other online sites. Thank YOU for taking awesome pictures of our food and sharing them on Twitter, Facebook, Foodspotting and Instagram. Thank YOU for the face-to-face conversations we have at the truck, when you see us out & about in San Antonio, and also for the ‘virtual’ conversations we have via social media.
See – this award is more about YOU, and less about us. You should be proud to have the #7 rated Food Truck in America here in San Antonio. Next year, let’s make it our goal to get even MORE San Antonio food trucks on these lists!
Thank you so much for being our loyal “foodie” customer. We’ll see ya around the truck again soon!
#2. LOTS of fun San Antonio Peeps to hang out with!
#3. LIVE Music!
And last, but by no means least, the AMAZING food trucks that will be there including US!
So RSVP, and then plan on spending a fun afternoon with us & Ranger Creek this Saturday!
Helpful tips to ensure you have an AWESOME time:
Arrive EARLY. The event starts at 2:00pm, but we recommend coming around 1:30 to ensure you get in first so you can “stake your spot” in the back.
Bring a CHAIR. There are some folding chairs, but the seating is limited so bring your bag chair & get comfy. Bring a canopy as well, if you want – you can set it up and you’ll probably make some friends wanting to get out of the South TX sun!
Bring SUNSCREEN/Hat/Etc. A large portion of the event is outside, so for those who burn, be sure dress appropriately and bring sunscreen.
Bring CASH. Most food trucks accept credit cards (we always do), but we definitely LOVE the money that folds!
March 30, 2013 will be the last day you will have regular access to our one-of-a-kind authentic Pakistani food at the Boardwalk on Bulverde (BoB) food truck park.
Why? Well, we realize that our food truck has wheels and there are quite a few folks around San Antonio who have not had a chance to taste our amazing food. So, we’re embracing the essential benefit of being a food truck and becoming truly mobile so we can share our addictive samosas, “The Tony” and our other tasty bites all over town. You just might see us on the highway heading to our next location, or we may even turn up for the day at another area food truck park. (For example, we’ll be at The Point on Boerne Stage Road in April!)
Be sure to follow us on Facebook & Twitter so you know where and when to join us.
We truly appreciate all of our loyal BoB customers along with Cameron, Josh and the crew at Cruising Kitchens/BoB and we hope you will look for us around town starting on April 1. ( And no, this is NOT an April Fool’s joke!)
Please stop by during our last Saturday dinner service at BoB (3/30 6-9pm) so we can thank you for your support.
San Antonio Food Trucks will have a much stronger voice in the very near future.
Keith Hill from K-Hill BBQ Company & Sameer Siddiqui from Rickshaw Stop spear-headed the San Antonio Food Truck Association by creating a non-profit 501(c) in 2012 with the hopes of organizing and unifying the local food truck, trailer and cart vendors into a single, united community. The goal of the association is to bring professionalism and credibility to the Mobile Food industry in San Antonio. With the help of Jon Lindskog (Cheesy Jane’s), Joseph Jackson (Lagniappe Today) and Neil Hajji (Wheelie Gourmet & Culture Cafe) membership by-laws have been written, including a code of conduct & ethics, and SAFTA is now accepting membership applications. As with any other trade association, we will offer a full array of services and benefits to our members.
Founder members. Provides full association benefits for food truck owners only.
Associate members. Provides no voting rights, but is open is to anyone.
Please keep in mind we are a new organization and we will all grow together. Whether a rookie or seasoned veteran, we highly recommend attending one of our meetings for further information.
We are currently in the process of creating our SAFTA website; so in the meantime, for membership details, the latest SAFTA news/events & information on upcoming meetings please:
The truck will be closed until after the New Year. Please check our schedule the week of Jan 1st for our updated schedule. If you need information regarding catering, please click “Contact Us” and send us a message with all of your event details.
