The Charcoal Grill- Gainesville, Florida

I have never tried Nicaraguan food until today. Right near the Post Office in Newberry, is a food truck called The Charcoal Grill. There is a small amount of parking, and they have some benches and stand-up tables for eating. I took mine home. They have a decent menu. I took home the Carne Asada, and the beef tacos. The Carne Asada is delicious, and the meat was seasoned well. I had white rice and sweet plantains. It also came with a sweet, vinegar type slaw. The beef tacos were perfect. They also came with the slaw, and sour cream. They offer 9 menu items all together, plus a kids meal, which is chicken strips and fries. The truck is clean, the staff is very nice. You can tell they love cooking, and are proud of the product they put out. It is really nice to have something different in Newberry. I know this place will do well. So go out and try something different. Support it.

They have since moved permanently to Gainesville!
