Real Bandits food truck challenges fast to-go staples

Geoffrey and Ana Lockley started Real Bandits late in 2016, though the truck itself didn’t open until mid-June of this year. We hear about them as a burger truck, but they also serve a sizable selection of Mexican food and breakfast options, and Geoffrey tells us they rotate in a wide range of seasonal items, from tortas to grilled peaches.

We eye a prominently advertised charburger, and Ana suggests their popular BBQ bacon avocado charburger ($8, $11 with fries and drink). As on most sandwiches, slippery avocado slices evacuate all other toppings, but the bacon, grilled onions and beef pack a savory punch under barbecue sauce that isn’t too sweet. It’s in the vein of Drifter’s/In-N-Out, though the patty’s thicker. Those who don’t mind paying a few bucks extra to avoid toting a bagged burger will find satisfaction and no small measure of freshness. Just skip the fries; they’re nothing special.
