Street food without the hassle of waiting outside. Street food without the worry of unsanitary conditions. Street food without the lack of consistency. Street food at what should be normal street food prices. Street food that should become a Friday afternoon tradition.

Del Campo is turning Friday afternoon lunch into an early weekend treat. Their Street Food Friday menu excellently executes the ideas of food trucks, but keeps it indoors. Different from normal take-out, this six item menu is only available for three hours on Friday afternoon and is meant to be enjoyed outdoors.

The Argentian inspired empenadas are a steal at $4 for Swiss chard, spinach parmesan and bechamel and $6 for skirt steak, carmelized onions and romesco. Each serving of two is enough for one person and makes an excellent appetizer for two.

Two skewers of beef heart anticucho will open your eyes and palate to the joy of eating a cow’s heart. Cows have delicious hearts.

The three sandwiches offered on Street Food Friday are what makes this special destination worthy. The Chori-Pan is what you wish a hot dog would be, if you’re into things like hot dogs and chorizo (you should be). The Peruvian inspired Pan Con Chicharon Sandwich with pork belly and sweet potatoes is an absolute steal for only $7. The Chivito Sandwich with seared ribeye, mortadalla hamd and a fried egg is enough food for two but is nearly impossible to share because of a FRIED EGG and you won’t want to split it.

Del Campo features Street Food Friday on Fridays from 11:30am to 2:30pm. If the food doesn’t draw you in, maybe the grilled lemonade will. Or their 8-hour happy hour.
