Economics: Reasonable price for no frills menu with three delectable BBQ sandwiches made from prime cuts of meat. Kobe Brisket $9, Kurobuta Pork $8 and Jidori Chicken $7. Sides include beans, coleslaw and potato salad $2 each.

Atmosphere: The New Black BBQ defines itself as the new take on BBQ. While respecting traditions they appreciate innovation. The New Black truck is small but cozy and has an open kitchen concept – no walls and you can see everything that goes on inside.

Taste: The Kobe Brisket BBQ sandwich was delicious. It came with juicy and flavorful Kobe brisket and topped with tangy BBQ sauce, pickled cabbage and a slice of pickle served on a fresh toasted bun.

Service: The service was superb. It was nice to meet Chris Sullivan (Co-owner/GM). He was cool, super-friendly and welcoming. The friendly service added to our great experience.
