Why did the Simonson’s cross the road? To find their passion on the other side! After exploring MANY restaurant options, a friend mentioned that he had seen a food truck with a wood-fired oven on Craigslist that turned out to be a converted Snap-On tool truck. So, naturally, they traded their regular paying, 8 hour a day jobs, with benefits; for a miniscule profit margin, 12-16 hour days (8 on their days off) and no pay at all to follow their dreams.
Together, Kevin and Colin have over 60 years of west coast restaurant experience in everything from dishwashing to bartending to cooking and everywhere from truck stops to 5-star dining experiences. They focus on the food, not the fluff.
Their first food truck, Crossroad Chicken, features weekly changing menus of wood fired oven goodies. Their wood fired fare includes sandwiches, Mary’s free range, air chilled whole chickens (order ahead to make sure you get one) and occasionally, the token taco. They will tickle your taste buds with Rancho Gordo heirloom bean chili, hearty soups and tasty salads. They feature local, seasonal and sustainably farmed ingredients on all of their menu items whenever possible and will create custom salads or sandwiches upon request.
After surviving a year and a half of working side by side the brothers decided to branch out. They got a second truck, roped in their brother Jake and Crossroad Burger was born! This time, specializing in tasty Niman Ranch beef burgers, as well as sandwiches, salads and other tasty eats. With their new truck Kevin and Colin continue to focus on the food and do what they can to support their local farms & communities. Their food, along with their offbeat humor, make every experience an appetizing and entertaining one.
Mother Nature has provided an incentive to visit the Crossroad trucks...hunger! Kevin and Colin continually provide mouth-watering, wholesome foods to satisfy any appetite. Their philosophy is to take the food that’s available seasonally and let the products shine.
As of January 1st, 2015 Crossroad Burger became Crossroad Kitchen!! But don't worry, nothing has changed except the name....for now!
