Episode 280- Guerrilla Street Food

The other day I caught up with Joel Crespo & Brian Hardesty of Guerrilla Street Food. We recorded this episode inside of Civil Life Brewing so you'll hear quite a bit of background noise along with a killer soundtrack.

If you haven't made it out to Guerrilla Street Food yet, I would highly encourage you to take a trip over there and grab some lunch or dinner. They are open 6 days a week at their location on the corner of Arsenal & Grand in St.Louis, or catch the food truck coming to a neighborhood near you.

We talk about how they started in the food truck industry, choosing to serve Filipino food and what's next for Guerrilla Street Food.
