Buda barbecue trailer wraps family fare in fresh tortillas

The meats at Shugabees BBQ are smoked for 10 hours, until the brisket is ready to fall apart and the chicken has absorbed just the right amount of smokiness.

So says Vic Garcia, who runs the eatery with his wife and three children, and who showed off those qualities inside the tiny interior of the trailer at the corner of FM 967 and FM 1626 in Buda.

Customers have taken notice—Garcia said the trailer has sold out of its product nearly every day since it opened on St. Patrick's Day in 2011.

"We wanted to do something different from what was out there," he said. "Everything is [served] on a homemade tortilla."

Garcia and his wife modified a family recipe to create the tortillas that are rolled, one at a time, by hand every day.

The name for the trailer comes from a Cajun song and was the nickname Vic and Sarah used for their youngest daughter.

"I love serving other people, and I love watching the expressions on people's faces," he said.
