I remember the first time I laid eyes on the BC Tacos food truck. BC Tacos food truck was making their Miami-Dade County debut at my event in Miami Lakes way back in 2011. It was also the same day I met the head caveman, Brett Chiavari.
My first thoughts were, these guys got the whole great food with great branding in the bag. At this point in the South Florida food truck industry, folks who had the whole package were beginning to dwindle. So, of course, it was great to see this really well-thought-out brand.
Three years later, he would open the BC Cafe in Davie, Florida, which is still going strong today. The BC Tacos food truck can still be found today in Broward & Palm Beach County, with Miami-Dade visits sprinkled in between serving up its unique and tasty menu.
BC Cafe in Davie, Florida
July 18th, 2014 – You gotta love how Brett Chiavari, the proud papa of the BC Tacos Food Truck & its younger sibling BC Cafe (4801 S University Drive, Davie), can keep the caveman theme running throughout both of his businesses, that includes the tip jar.
If you’re not familiar with the BC Tacos Food Truck empire, they’ve won multiple awards, including most recently the People’s Choice Best Food Truck at my 2014 Burger Beast Burgie Awards. BC Tacos is known for creative tacos and names that stay within their caveman theme (as mentioned earlier)—the cafe expands on the food truck menu with burgers, salads, wraps, and even breakfast.
The first time I stopped in, I had the Bacon Cheddar Onion Specialty Burger & their regular burger with cheese. Let’s get to the point, skip the regular and go straight for bacon cheddar onion burger. What makes this bad boy special is that it’s stuffed with cheddar cheese and bacon & caramelized onions. It’s essentially a Juicy Lucy. I’m thinking about adding a slice of cheese on top next time; what the hell, right?
The second visit was for breakfast. I may have titled the picture a Turkey Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Breakfast Burrito, but it’s really a quesadilla in my heart of hearts. We can agree to disagree, but it was as my friends Bill S. Preston Esquire and Ted “Theodore” Logan would say, “Excellent!” Another winner was the Steak, Egg & Cheese Taco on a flour tortilla.
National Hamburger Month
I finally made it out to one of their themed nights, this one being the National Hamburger Month edition of their burger Night (every 3rd Saturday), and they loaded it up real nicely. I was with my neighbor Mario, so we ordered 3 Burgers to share along with fries, sweet potato fries & tortilla chips with salsa. Back to the Fries for a second, you’re now able to go half order of regular and half order of sweet so keep that in mind.
The truth is if you’ve shared an odd amount of items with friends, you kinda become territorial over one of them. In my case, I was protecting the Fred Burger (topped with braised beef short rib & mozzarella) as if it was a virgin in a jail full of nymphomaniacs. Mario’s eyes kept wandering towards my Fred Burger, but at the same time, he was enamored with his Breakfast Burger (topped with cheese, sweet potato pancake, bacon, fried egg on challah bread, French toast buns).
We did also have the Korean Burger (Korean marinated beef, housemade kimchee, grilled scallions, spicy mayo, and a fried egg) situated between us, which we used as the dividing line. You really couldn’t go wrong with either of the three, but no disrespect intended; keep your eyes off of my Fred Burger. Got that?!?!
If you’re a fan of the B.C. Tacos, then you’ll love what’s going on over here at the cafe. There really is something for everyone on the menu, including PAC Pastries who make their Vegan Desserts for B.C. Cafe. Yes, they’re vegan, and they’re great. And yes, I really did just say that.

BC Tacos Food Truck
May 19th, 2011 – BC Tacos can normally be found in Broward County but will occasionally visit Miami. All of the tacos on the BC Tacos food truck have catchy names. One interesting thing to note is that there are only hard corn or soft flour tortillas available.
One of their specialties is the over-the-top Caveman Taco which involves tons of meat, hard and soft tacos. It’s as good as it sounds. Another great one to check out is The Gatherer that features fried avocado
