This was the second stop on our South Food Tour. It's a food truck but the owners are 100% foodies and totally into what they produce. They are constantly thinking about how to improve and what would be interesting to try.

We tried a burger and seriously, one of the best, most tender, most flavorful burgers in my life.

They are totally farm to table and absolutely are committed to putting out healthy, flavorful, interesting food that is fun to eat.

They are open only 3 days a week so check their schedule but check them out. You will not be disappointed.

I was a bit put off when the chef wouldn't let me get ketchup with my burger. However, once I had the first bite, I realized it wasn't jut a burger but rather a culinary experience. While the burger itself was the best I've had and would have tasted good with simply ketchup, the combination that was created far exceed my expectations. It's ok to try something new every now and then.- It was off the chain.

The 100% Awesome Burger wasn’t a lie! Best burger I’ve had in a long time! We ate here as part of the food tour, and my only regret is that we couldn’t go back a second time. The hours on their website were not updated so we were too late on Friday and they were cleaning up. We’ll definitely try again on our next trip!

We stopped here after looking up quick places to eat after a long morning of exploring. My husband had the Pulled Pork Sandwich, and my son had a hamburger. My daughter ordered the hot totties (which is tater tots with jack cheese). All meals get a thumbs up.

There are several trucks here to choose from, and all the food from any of them looked amazing.

The truck sits in a lot next to a large building with different vendors, giving it a high end flea market feel. Also had the cleanest rest rooms out of all the ones we have used.

We have been delighted to have Kickshaws at our timeshare once a week this winter. We have tried most of their menu and have enjoyed everything. Favorites would be the 20% bacon hamburger and pork belly sandwich. We have never tried food from a food truck before so were very skeptical but have thoroughly enjoyed this food.
