If you can’t beat ‘em, stare em down. Last year, Burro Cheese Kitchen tried to get El Burro Tex-Mex to change its name. That didn’t pan out at the grilled cheese specialists hoped. Now, they can keep their eye on the restaurant that trolled them with a harassing person dressed as a donkey.
The grilled cheese truck has opened at 1105 S. Lamar Blvd. next to the Gibson Bar and the new Stonehouse Coffee + Bar, across the street from El Burro. The truck has expanded operations and is now serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, opening daily at 7 a.m. and closing at 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and midnight on Friday and Saturday. Burro customers can take their food to the patio area or inside the new Stonehouse Coffee + Bar, the new all-day shop from operator Matt Luckie and FBR Management. The sleek shop built in a 117-year-old stone house serves a nice selection of wine and beer, along with pastries from Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery, gelato from Austin Gelato Company and more.
