Get that napkin tucked into the collar of your shirt because the vegan powerhouse on wheels is stopping by the Old Pueblo.

The plant-based junk food truck by Vuture Food is making its annual trip to Tucson on Saturday, October 29. The sandwiches, which look like they’re straight out of an old Carl’s Jr. commercial, will be served from 1 – 5 p.m. out in front of Tap & Bottle at 403 N. Sixth Ave. #135.

Like in previous years, there will not be any pre-orders and they’re accepting both credit cards and cash. Also, the menu will be shared the morning of the event, but you can expect to find Crispy Chik’n Sandwiches and Loaded Fries comin’ in hot.

Additionally, Vuture Food posted the following on Facebook:

“We cook all of our items in oil that contains soy. We are entirely nut-free. All of our loaded fries are made with GF ingredients. Our patties are made from a combination of soy, wheat, and peas.”

To wash it all down, Tap & Bottle has tons of great local, regional, and national beers on tap. Also, don’t forget to check out the multiple fridges to be sure you get a brew that’ll pair perfectly with your grub.

If you’re craving even more beverages, Crooked Tooth Brewing Company is right around the corner and The Royal Room is serving up craft cocktails left and right.

Back in 2018, the food truck out of Northridge, California started serving up vegan burgers and fries. After high demand from all over the country, Vuture Foods ventured out to festivals all over the continental U.S. and built relationships with breweries on the road. As of late, the company has three teams that visit more than 50 different cities all year long — Tucson being one of them.

Tap & Bottle is located at 403 N. Sixth Ave. #135. For more information, follow Vuture Food on Facebook
