I’ve been awaiting the debut of Jefe’s truck for a little while now since “Burgers” is part of his game. Jefe’s is also about the Fish Taco. I’m not necessarily a Fish Taco type of guy but Mango & Lime had one a few days ago.
I had one of Jefe’s Tacos Carnitas. The Tacos Carnitas were double Corn Tortillas topped with Roasted Pork, Onion, Cilantro and Salsa Verde.
The Taco was served with a side of spicy Red Salsa that caught me off guard when I tried it. It was spicier than the “Hot” at most places so be careful not to pour it on unless that’s your thing. The Pork was scrumptious and the toppings were fresh which made for a great taco.
Let’s get to the Burger (not to undermine the Taco) which was great but I was thinking about the Double Double Miami Style Burger (In-N-Out sent a Cease & Desist letter over the Double Double name, Jefe’s now calls it a Double Cheezer) the entire time I was eating it. The Double Double is 2 patties, 2 deli slices of American Cheese on a toasted Bun with Jefe’s Boss Sauce. Yes, you can get Lettuce, Tomatoes and Onions if you so desire.
You can choose to have it served Miami Style with “extra everything, over the top with Grilled Onions” at no extra cost. Of course, I had my Double Double Miami Style. Those of you familiar with West Coast chain IN-N-OUT will notice some similarities in taste to their Burger and name. I loved the Burger. If IN-N-OUT and Shake Shack had a delicious Burger baby, it would be Jefe’s Double Double.
The Boss Sauce is also perfect for dipping their Fresh Cut Fries (which are served with Capers). Jefe’s is a welcome addition to the Miami Food Truck circuit. To find Jefe’s Original Fish Taco & Burgers Truck’s whereabouts daily, make sure to check out their Twitter and Facebook pages.
