I've never been to Curbside but it's basically a burger/sausage truck that travels to different locations in BR for lunch/dinner/late night crowd. Never been but supposedly it's the best burger in BR. I've been wanting to try it.

Went to the Curbside truck on Wed and I have to say, I was disappointed. Felt like the burger quality fell off a little. Didn't see Nick or any usual guys working, I'm assuming they were at Barcadia. The real problem was the fries. I did not get a single fry that was even an inch in length. It was a bunch of inedible scraps. I've never been huge on their fries but this was absurd

went there for lunch and had the KGB. The patty was small compared to the bun. I thought the patty was really dry. The egg added nice flavor to the burger. Fries were a abundant serving and pretty decent.
I left unimpressed but I'll try it again at some point
I ate there at around 2 today and it was empty. By the time I left about 15 people had shown up. Half tourists, half meat heads. I skedaddled when I heard the bartender tell a couple from out of town who were looking for a poboy "oh go right down the street to Mothers, it's like the best poboy ever."
My girlfriend and another couple good friends stopped in there today. There were three of them and the employee took two of the orders and then told my third friend the kitchen was closed. He also charged my girlfriend's card twice and then apologized and said he was drunk. When they did get their two burgers they said they were small and lukewarm. One of my friends is a big fan of the truck in BR and he said it was terrible compared to the truck.
I understand it's mardi gras, but that's no excuse to have drunk employees and sub-par food.
i went there during Bacchus, and despite spending like $100, the bouncer wouldnt let me back inside the bar to use the bathroom with the drink I bought in their own bar. fricking ridiculous. this went on everytime i tried to reenter. I even showed him my receipt.
dont think im going back there, it was very off-putting
That's ridiculous. Don't owners realize doormen are basically the face of their business? Sounds like some dude on a roid trip. Or he's too stringent on enforcing management's policies. Either way that's some BS.
