Lo Salvaje Food Truck

Lo Salvaje (loosely translated, ‘The Wild’) is the brainchild of James Beard award winner Jesse Griffiths, chef Stephanie Stackhouse and Josh Crumpton. The concept was born from a desire to bring locally sourced ingredients and wild-game-inspired fare to a broader audience. The menu at Lo Salvaje is deliciously inventive - think street tacos meets haute cuisine with a wild game flair.

Open Thursday 4-8 pm, Friday & Saturday 12-8 pm, Sunday 12-6 pm

“Drove about 4 hours specifically to visit, taste and tour this distillery. It was beyond worth it. KB is a phenomenal tour guide and did an incredible job explaining every detail. Getting to try the Sotol in different parts of the process was very unique. The bar is also amazing!"
