“Back in August, when we soft opened, we were excited about what we were doing, but we knew we weren’t yet able to fully offer everything we’d envisioned.” shared co-owner Bria Perozzo. “We knew it was time to get the doors open to start seeing some dollars come in to get to the next stage. And now we’re so thrilled that the next stage is here!”
El Viejon had some early struggles with getting a food truck licensed in WA State – a process that can take 8-16 months depending on the waiting list at WA State’s L&I Dept. This was a list El Viejon owner, Eldy Prado, couldn’t wait for any longer. After operating for 8 weeks under a “Booth/Tent License” in Clark County, Prado purchased a 2nd truck already certified with the state and is now open every day Vice is open (Tuesday-Sunday) until 9pm.
“I’m excited to be open every day serving the full menu we dreamed of for El Viejon,” said Prado. “We’ve still got the quesabirria, the tacos, and the burritos, but now the full kitchen allows us to serve our mariscos (Jalisco-style seafood), shrimp empanadas, and massive Coctel de Camaron (Mexican shrimp cocktail).” And watch for weekly specials like Birria Ramen and burrito bowls.
