Food Trucks

Latin Burger Breaks Down, Weekend Truck Tracker UPDATED

Latin Burger's Jim Heins rolls with the punches, literally. The Latin Burger truck broke down right in the middle of the intersection of I-95 and I-395. Instead of throwing a fit about wasted revenue, Heins took out his camera, shot a photo and sent it to Miami New Times. Heins is waiting for a part for the ailing Latin Burger, but still expects the truck to make a portion of Street Food Friday. (Updated: Latin Burger is fixed and back on the road.)

Meanwhile, trucks are expected to make appearances in several different locations this weekend, including Gold Coast Railroad Museum, Wynwood and Tobacco Road. (Please see updated list for additional truck locations for the weekend.)
