Austin’s latest food truck mash-up combines Jewish puns and Tex-Mex takes on burgers with JewBoy Burgers, set to open on Friday, October 21. The melding of the two influences came about with Jewish owner Mo Pittle, who grew up in El Paso.
Clearly the trailer isn’t kosher: it offers five different punny burgers, all with cheese. The Jewish American Princess comes with a latke (it was named by local blogger What Jew Wanna Eat Amy Kritzer). Potato rolls or Texas toast will be used as buns.
Handmade latkes will be served with the traditional applesauce and sour cream, or the unexpected green chile salsa or spicy ketchup. Of course, there’s chile con queso, made with a blend of queso blanco, white cheddar and jack cheeses, plus roasted green chiles, butter, and milk.
Other non-burger dishes include the kosher-friendly hot dog sandwich and vegetarian grilled cheese. For sweets, there will be more Jewish treats: Pittle is working on adding hamantaschen and black and white cookies, which should be available later.
JewBoy Burgers will be open for lunch and dinner from Tuesday through Saturday.
