I learned Achilles' Grill was also at December's "Eat the Street" event a couple weeks ago (12/16). The number of food trucks/vendors continues to grow for such an occasion!

And of course, I asked for their hottest (10+) sauce. This was basically a mix of sweet chile sauce with freshly minced red Thai chiles and habanero peppers. An excellent sauce here, perfect for me. A great blend of sweet and heat!

The crispy exterior of the meat is just heavenly. While I got a nice portion of ribs, there was a lot of fat on here, which I did not like -- and more of a disappointment than anything else. The potato salad contained some sliced sweet onions...delicious and nicely seasoned.
Reviewers on Yelp apparently have had mixed feelings on the Pad Thai. I usually avoid the noodles when I can, so I'll defer to other people on this one. On the other hand, the curries are tempting.
Extremely friendly chefs/owners here. Kudos for a nice portion size, but they'd get such a considerably higher score with meatier ribs. 7/10
