Wild Barley Kitchen Co. — a San Antonio food trailer known for wood-fired sourdough bagels, bread and pizza — will expand its footprint by taking over the spot occupied by the recently shuttered Lee's El Taco Garage.
On Tuesday, the food truck operator announced that it will locate Wild Barley Kitchen and Brewery in the Broadway-corridor space, establishing its first brick-and-mortar location.
“It’s been a long few years and we are excited to take the next steps forward towards reaching our dream,” its Instagram post read. "Over the next few months we will be building out our Kitchen and Brewery in the old Taco Garage location.”
Lee's El Taco Garage closed permanently in February. Its operators didn't state a reason for shutting down the restaurant.
Until the permanent Wild Barley location opens, the business will continue selling sourdough-based wares from its food trailer at 2202 Broadway St. The mobile kitchen is open Thursday through Sunday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
