An owner of a truck stop alley across from the old San Francisco Transbay Terminal building decided to fill his alley with food trucks during lunch time every Monday to Friday from 11am to 2pm. Each day there are three food trucks in the alley. Today was The Rib Whip, Mama’s Empanadas, and Pacific Puffs. Since The Rib Whip rarely comes to this side of Market Street, I decided to try them out (which also happened to be the longest line).
The Rib Whip is a Midwest-Style BBQ food truck with a smoker on-board in the back. They’ll smoke their meats for 12+ hours before serving them for lunch the next day.
When you get up to the front to order, they have an iPad hooked up to a metal arm running Square in which the cashier and punch in your order on the spot. It’ll accept credit card payments as well.
I ordered the Kobe Beef Brisket Sandwich (a bit pricey at $12) which contained perfectly-cooked/smoked meat and wasn’t drowning in BBQ sauce so you can taste the tenderness of the meat. The meat was tasty and tender even without the BBQ sauce. The BBQ sauce was sweet and tangy and more could be added from the side of the truck.
Baked Beans with burnt ends was my side and it was scrumptious with bits of chicken and onion in there as well. This was chili-sized…..well worth the $3.
