TJ opened this cart in mid-March, choosing to specialize in Texas BBQ. He has three types of meat on hand: pulled pork, chicken, and tri-tip. A little surprised I didn't see brisket, which tends to remind me of Texas more than tri-tip (usually associated with California). The tri-tip cooks for about 1.5 hours, the chicken for three, and pulled pork gets a 9-hour prep.
I opted for the "Slow Hand" pulled pork sandwich with the Sonoran sauce ($6). After a few minutes, I received a good-sized sandwich, fluffy bun and all.

I like that TJ doesn't have a ridiculously spicy option just for kicks. He cares about the flavor so his customers can enjoy the food. But he seems open to considering a custom spicy concoction.
You can add a side to any sandwich for $1.50 more. Sides include homemade mac and cheese, BBQ beans (slowly simmered with smoked pork shoulder), or buttermilk cornbread (served with honey and butter). The sides are $2.50 a la carte.
I definitely wish TJ the best with his food cart! Definitely head out and try his food! 8.5/10
