Where Y’at is one of San Antonio’s most popular food trucks, and serves up Cajun and Creole food that is as delicious as anything you’d find in Louisiana. Owned and operated by a couple who loves to food, you’ll get what tastes like a home cooked meal when you eat at this street vendor’s truck.
What They Serve
The menu is subject to change daily based on the creativity of the chef and what’s available locally, but, here’s an idea of some great things you’ll be able to find on the food truck:
- red beans & rice
- shrimp, catfish, and pulled pork Po’Boys
- Boudin balls
- “Charc” plates, featuring gator, smoked duck, and hog bacon
- hand-cut french fries
The truck also serves cafe au laits if you’re having a coffee craving, or if you need some java to accompany one of your hot and perfectly-dusted-with-powdered-sugar beignets.
What to Expect
You shouldn’t expect anything less than the best when you go to Where Y’at, as they’ve earned their reputation as one of the best food trucks in San Antonio by providing food that’s as fresh as it is delicious. People rave about their crawfish (which are kept live and are cooked right in front of you), go on and on about their Po’Boys, love their muffaletta, and can’t get enough of the beignets! When you go here, expect their to be a wait, because people line up early to get in on this food.
When & Where to Eat
The truck is stationed on the Alamo Street Eat Bar on Alamo Street every Tuesday through Saturday. Closed Sunday and Monday, you’ll be able to eat here during the other days of the week from 5 PM to 12 AM Tuesday through Thursday, and 5 PM to 2 AM on Fridays and Saturdays. Beware of the late night rush: when people leave the bars, this is a favorite place to go for some late night grub. If you’re set on going here and want to get the best that there is, be here at 5 PM!
While some food trucks have no where for their patrons to sit, you’ll find a couple of tables set up at Where Y’at. As some of this food can get messy, having a place to chow down at is definitely a plus of this truck!
What You’ll Pay
The prices here are really reasonable, especially considering how popular it is. For a full meal that fills you up, expect to pay just about $10 per person. As cajun food is normally pretty cheap–at its made from cheap ingredients–Where Y’at got it right by keeping prices in line with their food, despite the high quality and level of flavor.
Finally, the staff here is super friendly, and the owner is smiley, nice, and ready to answer any questions about the food. For a really good, and feel good, eating experience, this truck is a must-go to.
