    Best burrito you can find in NC hand down !

    I live in Raleigh but travel to Morehead City and Beaufort many times in the Summer and consider myself a Dankster, these guys really know how to do a burrito with local flavor so it’s good to see them coming to Transfer Station. There really isn’t another NC food truck operation in the State that has it going on like this group.

    I travel NC a lot, live in Asheville and ate at the restaurant and at a mobile location when I visited Morehead and can tell you there is not another NC food truck operation experience like these guys are doing. Given the move to Transfer St, is the long-term goal to branch out in to all NC cities?

      I reached out to the marketing team, and they gave no indication that the long-term goal is (or isn’t) to branch out in to other cities in NC. I think right now they are focused on Transfer Co. in Raleigh and will go from there.

    Are they also going to have a mobile food truck in Raleigh and Wake County or just a restaurant?

    • October 22, 2018 at 9:34 am

      The truck primarily services Morehead City, Beaufort (all of Carteret County), Havelock, New Bern, and Jacksonville NC. The truck is taken to Raleigh, NC for special events and other functions, but as of today there are no plans to have a dedicated truck traveling Wake County and Raleigh. The short answer is Dank Burrito’s market, for now, will be Transfer Co.
