New S.A. food truck serves up Cajun faves
From fried boudin balls to gumbo, etouffee, and a lineup of seafood po’boy sandwiches, a new Cajun-themed food truck has joined the San Antonio street eats scene.
The husband-and-wife team of Carlos and Tiffany Graves have launched Saint Queenies, a truck they have branded as Cajun food with a Texas twist. Carlos said the truck is named after Tiffany, who goes by the nickname “Queenie.”
In addition to traditional Louisiana menu items, Saint Queenies also offers fish and chips, fried chicken and waffles, fish and shrimp tacos, and a unique snack of Fried Piggy Mac, a dish of fried mac and cheese topped with bacon.
The truck made its debut in late December 2018, but is now operating with a more consistent schedule of Thursday through Sunday service at area food truck parks such as StreetFare SA (1916 Austin Highway) and The Point Park (24188 Boerne Stage Road). The Graves’ continue to hold day jobs in the medical field, so their schedules can vary from week to week.
