It's street food with a mexican twist. Wholly Frijoles is getting ready to showcase their authentic Mexican cuisine at the "Food Truck Friday: Radio Roundup" at the Akron Radio Center this Friday.
Owner and operator Juan Gonzalez launched Wholly Frijoles last year with his wife.
"Eventually, we want to have a restaurant, so a food truck is the way to start," said Gonzalez. "So, here we are filling one taco at a time."
Gonzalez was born in Mexico and was raised in Los Angelas, California where he worked with several local food trucks. He then moved to Ohio to work as a kitchen manger.
What's one of his favorite items off the menu? Vanilla Flan. Wholly Frijoles also a several different taco options including carnitas, seasoned calabacitas and chicken nachos.
Sushi on the Roll, Stone Pelican, Zydeco Bistro, and Orange Truk are also lined up to bring their food to the Akron Radio Center on West Market Street on Friday, August 9 starting at 11:00 a.m. until supplies run out.

Sushi on the Roll - Established in 2007, Sushi on the Roll evolved from a vision to bring sushi to the masses. Specifically, to bring a fresh sushi product to corporate America cafeterias as another healthy option for lunch. We immediately began setting up new infrastructure to facilitate the processing of sushi at our state-of-the-art kitchen to produce a high volume of sushi. We also secured a high profile retail outlet right in the heart of a large corporate parkway in Akron, Ohio. Our quality product is recognized as the pinnacle of excellence for taste, freshness, consistency and value for money. This has assured continuing company growth as the popularity of the sushi product has and continues to escalate beyond all expectations. www.sushiontherollonline.com
