I’d been eager to visit Inc Street Food. The food truck movement is hot right now and while things are slow to progress here in Atlanta with food trucks, Inc Street Food decided to take the concept of street food and move it indoors.
For months I had anticipated going and the opportunity came along on a Friday afternoon late last fall, after a particularly strenuous hike with my besties, Kim and Tim. I hadn’t been to the Roswell square in so long, I had missed the openings of a bunch of cute restaurants all lining one of the small streets near the square. And all are complete with outdoor patios to boot.
We three were sweaty and hot from hiking and chose the indoor seating with it’s cool air over the lovely patio. Inc Street Food is small and narrow but makes the best of it’s seating. Stepping inside Inc, the first room has close seats against the wall which face the bar. But it’s a bit more roomy in the back where we chose to sit.
Margaritas looked good but I didn’t want anything but H20 as I felt quite dehydrated. Still determined to go back on another day for one of their margaritas. Looking at their menu, many of the appetizers are just about as much as tacos – $8 – $9. We started with Yucca and Cactus fries – unusual, nicely salted and tasty.
I chose the chicken tostada. Kim got veggie burritos and Tim got chicken sandwich. When ordering, I could tell there was so much more to explore on the menu – like veal cheek tacos, ahi tuna tacos and much more. Their website has been down for months otherwise I’d tell you to check it out.
The chicken sandwich was a rather large portion and tasted pretty good. They definitely jazzed up what could be a boring dish, and the potatoes served beside it were tasty and filling as well. My chicken tostada had the appearance of being small, but it ended up being a pretty filling dish. Filling – yes, but not really a standout in the taste department in any way. Kim felt the same about her veggie burritos.
I was expecting bold and unusual flavors and I certainly got them. Certainly wasn’t like a visit to Willy’s. But at the same time, it wasn’t anything that intrigued me enough to go back. I could take it or leave it.
