Big Daddy’s Eats and Treats is a local food truck that will catch your attention with its decorated lights and delicious raspas. Gaining their customers through social media, Big Daddy’s Eats and Treats is the most popular food truck in San Antonio, hitting 14,000 followers on Facebook.

Big Daddy’s Eats and Treats have been receiving accolades from KENS5 to FOX San Antonio. The food truck is always filled with smiles, laughter and fun. Big Daddy’s Eats and Treats will soon have a park tour where they will go to each park in San Antonio and bring smiles to children and adults’ faces.

Time spent in line can exceed four hours, but their raspas are worth it. Owners Jaime Morales and Andrew Olvera started Big Daddy’s Eats and Treats in July 2012. The owners’ friendly personalities keep their customers satisfied while waiting for their iconic Mangonada, Piccadilly, Cucumbers in a Bag and their bestseller, Cucumbers Hill.

The mangonada is made with natural mangos and sour, red chamoy. With every spoonful you take, the flavor of chamoy fills your mouth. It will leave you wanting more, so make sure you ask for the largest one just in case.

If you enjoy eating sweet and sour flavors, Morales recommends the Piccadilly. The Piccadilly is a strawberry-flavored raspa made with pickles, green and red chamoy and lucas. It is layered, so you will have all the flavors throughout the raspa. The Piccadilly tastes like a Mexican-Watermelon candy—sweet and sour with a ting of chile on the side. The raspa is only recommended for those who enjoy the sour, so don’t order it if you prefer a sweet flavor.

The cucumbers in a bag contain red and green chamoy and chile lime salt. The crunchy, sour and sweet snack is the perfect combination. It is a delicious snack that all children and adults will enjoy.

The greatest fact of all is that Morales welcomes every customer with his friendly smile and heart-of-gold. The food truck’s hours and locations vary each day and week, so follow them on Facebook at Their prices range from $3-$5.
