Margarita trucks are the adult version of the ice cream trucks that bring joy to many young kids in the neighborhood
The joyful melody of ice cream trucks attracts the attention of both children and adults. Everyone could use a delicious and refreshing treat in hot summer days, right? Well, adults will definitely love this version of the “ice cream truck.” Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the margarita truck!
Locals in San Antonio, Texas, got their very own margarita supply. Chef Johnny Hernandez owns La Gloria, a restaurant, and he decided to make people feel better. What’s better than getting a freshly made margarita right around the corner.
Quarantine would be way different if instead of ice cream and nursery rhymes, the truck drove around selling margaritas to mariachi.

“Our Margarita Trucks are another fun and creative way to adapt to the ever-changing business landscape,” the restaurant owner said. “Today, safety is top of mind for everyone, and many of our customers are simply not ready to dine out; however, we know that doesn’t mean they don’t crave one of our famous margaritas.”
People in San Antonio can enjoy La Gloria’s house margarita (served frozen or on the rocks), the Blue Margarita, the Prickly Pear Margarita, and the Mango Margarita. La Gloria’s truck serves drinks in 16-ounce cups, and the price starts at $10. The booze is spiced up with a 50-millimeter add-on of El Jimador tequila.
Hernandez owns another restaurant, The Fruteria, and offers Taco kits, street corn, chips, salsa, and queso. Everything that goes with a fresh margarita.
The margarita trucks don’t drive from one neighborhood to another though. They function like regular food delivery service. Customers place orders in advance and pay online. The minimum order is set at $40.
“Delivering to our customers’ homes does not only make enjoying our signature margaritas safer and more convenient, but this new avenue of serving our customers also helps to rebuild our business, in turn allowing us to hire back more members of our team,” Hernandez explained.
The food is delivered cold. If customers want it warmed up, Hernandez charges an additional $5 delivery charge.

San Antonio residents are more than excited about the opportunity.
