Since October of last year, Tony and Anna Escribano Tapia have been providing authentic Mexican food from a mobile food kitchen. You can find everything from burritos, tacos, quesadillas, tamales, tortas and more!
By day you will see Tony working at Big Timber, "but he has a passion for cooking and he finds joy in people enjoying his food creations. He has 10 plus experience in being a chef, and he is now excited that he can work for himself," said Anna. Anna works in a dental office during the week. The food truck is a family project that the kids can also be part of. "It's truly a family business and we enjoy being able to spend time with our kids while we work!" she continued.
During the summer months of May thru October, the truck is located in the Dollar General parking lot. During the winter months, the couple sells from their home address at 403 West 2nd Street in Vinton.
The business announced new hours: Thursday 5-8:00 p.m., Friday 2-7:00 p.m. Saturday 12-7:00 p.m.
Antonio's also caters special events, weddings, birthday parties, graduation, and just any kind of get together. Call us for pricing and dates available. 319-551-1008 for Spanish (espaol) 319-540-9963
