Food truck owner: ‘That big old gust could blow tacos all over the highway’


Outdoor businesses were also dealing with some strong winds Wednesday night. 

Local food trucks were feeling the impact. 

“It’s pretty windy,” said Dustin Presley, owner and operator of Gaga’s Grub. “As long as it’s not blowing 60 to 70 mile per hours, we should be alright.”

Sometimes it can be worse than others.

“Especially on K-96. Yes, definitely,” said Anthony Graham, chef apprentice for Gaga’s Grub.

“That big old gust could blow tacos all over the highway,” said Presley.

Wednesday, it was more the customers who had to deal with the unwanted breeze.

“I am having a bad hair day,” said Lance Garrett, a Wichita resident. “It’s blowing it all over the place. But, with this taco truck here, we’re having fun.”

And, while it takes some extra effort to keep your hair out of your face while enjoying your meal, customers say the trip to the food truck is still worth it. 

“Going from 20 to 30 degrees, you know in the 70s, this is awesome,” said Nick Bombardier, a Wichita resident. “I’d be outside no matter if it is windy.”

Presley says if it gets too cold or windy, they just shut the truck down for the day. 

If they can work around the weather they will, just to keep customers fed.
