WINNER: The Fridge-SA
609 S. Alamo St. • (210) 473-0916
> Owners Eva and Gabriel Cardenas celebrated their food truck's third anniversary this month. Located at the Alamo Street Eat Bar on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays (and "bouncing around" the Downtown area all week, too), The Fridge features grilled paninis, corndogs and a host of sandwiches, a menu item Gabriel considers "universal." The Monty Burns contains smoked ham, Gouda cheese, mayo, Dijon mustard and jalapeño raspberry jam. It's dipped in egg, fried, dusted with powdered sugar and served on ciabatta bread. Their signature sandwich is The Hottie, a Hot Cheetos fried chicken sandwich. Recently, they started serving burgers, which include 80/20 ground chuck, caramelized red onions, Gouda cheese and arugula on a Central Market bun. "It's a damn good burger," Gabriel told the Current. "I think our customers like us because we hustle and put our heart into it. It doesn't hurt that we put out a good product."
