According to their official website, Born to Fry is often parked by Papa Juan's Mexican Grille and Via Sofia's on Center Point Road in Cedar Rapids, but is "looking forward to partnering with Cedar Rapids, Hiawatha, Mount Vernon, and the surrounding areas to continue providing the community with delicious and authentic Central American cuisine." The mobile restaurant offers cheese curds, tater tots, wings, and fried chicken, as well as "a wide selection of delicious Latin cuisine dishes," including:

  • Tacos
  • Tamales
  • Chuchitos
  • Atole de Elote
  • Cabeza
  • Lengua
  • Pollo
  • Asada

Back in mind-November, local foodie Joe Sample gave Born to Fry his stamp of approval. He tried a lot of different menu items during his stop, and they all look great! Especially those wings...
