Mike Minor likes to describe his Truck-U Barbeque as "meat candy on wheels." The former executive chef at Border Grill debuted his rolling "urban hipster" barbecue two weeks ago with a sticky molasses sweet sauce. Call it Mexican food with a Southern twist, all set aboard a tattooed truck designed by HGTV star Luca Paganico. Most items on the menu are in the $10 range. Follow the truck on Twitter here.
