South Philly Barbacoa is getting a storefront.
South Philly Barbacoa, the Mexican food cart sensation from Ben Miller and Cristina Martinez is getting a storefront. The cart has been a weekend destination at 8th and Watkins since early 2014. But Saturday was the cart’s last service at 8th and Watkins. But on the very good side, Miller and Martinez are going to be getting a storefront at 1703 S 11th Street, the former home of Vegan Commissary.
Eater reports that the barbacoa storefront could open as early as the first weekend in July. As for Vegan Commissary, they closed as of May 31st and are looking for a new, larger location.
