Because they wanted to get on the road without risking Dean Moriarty banging their girlfriends, 305 fave Pincho Factory decided to hit said thoroughfare in a dark brown truck with graphics of its eats on the side, following a year of peddling its “did they really do that?” (they sure did) burgers, pinchos, and kabobs in South Miami.
The menu'll be rotating in new stuff regularly, and in honor of the Burgie Awards this week'll be even more patty-heavy than usual thanks to creations like the Tostone Burger with two fried plantains serving as buns to house-certified angus, Muenster, roasted garlic, and cilantro sauce; the famous Pincho (onions/housemade pink sauce/shoestring potatoes); as well as two patties, four slices of American, and two strips of turkey bacon piled high on two grilled cheese buns, altogether known as The Foreman, which's weirdly named not after George, but Steve, some guy who heads construction.
Meanwhile, standby staples'll include kabobs and single pinchos (chicken, skirt steak, beef) with pitas smothered in cilantro or mango sauce, plus "flavorful experiments" like the Tots n' Turkey (deep-fried turkey breast served in a bowl of puffy sweet potato tots drizzled with Copperpot's homemade apple butter), and the bacon-stacked Double Decker Goober Burger that subs in PB&Js for the buns, and somehow doesn’t even have delicious fattening Goobers in it. Geez.
For drinks, they're staying rooted with natural-sugar goodness like Virgil’s Root Beer and Orange Cream Soda, plus Fanta and some Mexican Coke, which's also why Dean Moriarty liked those jazz clubs so much. Blow! Blow!
