Juancho’s Grill is a new food truck located on East Colonial Drive just west of Alafaya Trail, right next to the Bojangles chicken place in a small dirt lot. You’ll know it immediately from the hot red paint job on its truck trailer. The place is owned by Juancho, a young man who decided to strike it out on his own to provide for his family and newly born baby daughter.
The specialty here is the Colombian burger ($4.99) and Colombian hotdogs ($3.99), a unique food unlike their American counterparts. The ingredients of the Colombian burger and Colombian hot dog include potato chips, strips of bacon, lettuce, ketchup, mayo, fried queso cheese, and a special sweet pineapple sauce that lingers on after your first bite. My friend Daniel and I shared them together and loved the symphony of tastes that occurred in each item. We washed it down with some Colombiana soda and manzana apple flavored soda.
Juancho’s Grill also serves hawaiian quesadillas, arepas, salchipapas (frankfurters with potatos), pinchos (grilled meat on skewers), and more.
They are closed on Mondays but open every other day of the week. Tuesday- Thursday 12 noon till 11 pm and Friday and Saturday 4 pm till 4 am and Sunday 4 pm till 10 pm.
