Food trucks morphing into brick-and-mortar operations is becoming more and more popular. Just ask the team behind Aioli Gourmet Burgers, which started six years ago as a restaurant on wheels. Now, the award-winning burger joint has three stationary eateries across the Valley, including inside Fry’s Marketplace in Litchfield Park.
Its sister company and fellow mobile culinarian, Modern Tortilla, is now following in its footsteps. The Aioli team’s second food truck concept is now setting up shop in the West Valley Fry’s food court.
“To have the opportunity to offer our southwestern style cuisine alongside our other brand is going to be an incredible experience,” co-owner and executive chef Tommy D’Ambrosio says.
That cuisine includes best-sellers like the El Ranchero taco with 24-hour marinated beef skirt steak, white onions, cilantro, chipotle salsa and fresh lime on a homemade corn tortilla, and Flew The Coop – a chicken tinga taco featuring cinnamon, tomatillo, chipotle, roasted bell peppers and salsa verde on a cilantro-lime corn tortilla. The menu also boasts burritos, quesadillas, flautas, elote and churros. A cold case will offer taco kits and grab-and-go items.
Its location is ideal for Fry’s guests to snag something fast and fresh while shopping.
“Our customers are looking for convenient meal options,” says Fry’s Food Store’s deli and bakery merchandiser, J.J. Mattison. “Solutions like Modern Tortilla, Aioli Gourmet Burgers and others offer customers a variety of already prepared or easy-to-prepare options that they can easily enjoy.”
