Hot wheels: Flaming Amy's gets food truck
September 6, 2012By Liz Biro
Flaming Amy’s burritos are hitting the road.
The popular Mexican restaurant at 4002 Oleander Drive will introduce a food truck this fall, said Amy Muxworthy, who owns Flaming Amy’s Burrito Barn with her husband, Jay Muxworthy.
Plans are to serve a selection of burritos from Flaming Amy’s list. The truck’s size prevents the couple from serving the full menu, Amy Muxworthy said.
Where the truck will roll remains under consideration.
“At this point, we’re still kind of trying to figure out the best way to do it in terms of whether it will be a regular route or catering,” Amy Muxworthy said.
For now, the couple is revamping the truck that chef Christopher Dupre had operated as Port City Sliders. Dupre and the Muxworthys are friends, Amy Muxworthy said. When Dupre abandoned the truck to take a job out of town, the Muxworthys decided to step aboard.
Amy Muxworthy said she hopes the truck will be serving food by the end of October.
