There's not much to see when you are traveling down US Hwy 87 S. but when you make it to Eden, Texas, you may come The Burrito Lady food truck.
"I came home and told my husband and said we are going to make burritos and he's like,it's not going to work," Cindy Gonzalez, owner of The Burrito Lady, said.
Cindy has dreamed of owning a restaurant since she was a little girl. Her journey to where she is today began when a nurse at a hospital asked her to start making burritos. She was in between jobs at the time, so she decided to do it with the help of her husband
"My husband has been a cook for 20 plus years, so I think it has just been good teamwork," Gonzalez said.
Fast forward six years, she is cooking out of a food truck that a friend told her about during the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo.
"She didn't tell me anything there,” Gonzalez said. “She called me a week later and she was like, do you think she wants to buy my food truck?"
The menu started off as just basic breakfast burritos, but Cindy listened to her customers and started serving several items created by them. One item was the breakfast quesadilla, which was thought of by a traveling trucker.
"Bacon, sausage,eggs, grilled onions and jalapenos and cheese," Gonzalez said.
If you are in the mood for lunch, try the shrimp quesadilla. The staff grills shrimp and covers it in homemade hot sauce, onions, jalapeno, and cheese. It all goes inside a fresh tortilla.
"Our salsa is very well liked,” Gonzalez said. “I would love to package that someday."
When you come to The Burrito Lady, you are going to get much more than great food and friendly service. You can enjoy the old school vibe by taking photos and looking at the menu, which is a window from a 100-year-old house.
"I love antiques, I love the old fashioned look I just love it," Gonzalez said.
The future of The Burrito Lady is definitely a bright one. Gonzalez has purchased a storefront in hopes of one day moving into it. She said she could not have done this without the support of her friends, family and the community.
"It takes a village to raise a child and we have had the best people able to support us," Gonzales said.
