Red Hot is certainly one of the coolest looking food trucks in town, a converted 1971 airstream trailer with an 80 sq ft kitchen. Red Hot is run by husband and wife team Craig and Jane Langworthy. Chef Craig has a background in food service and catering and is looking forward to having more direct contact with his customers. We stumbled upon Red Hot at their first event the Upper Arlington Arts Festival and you may have also seen them at the Megacity Music marathon this weekend.

For their first event Red Hot offered four different types of tacos and we tried the three meat options. Our favorite was the steak tacos with black beans, cheese, salsa verde and caramelized onions. Craig plans to introduce other dishes as he gets established and will focus on tacos, quesadillas, soups and salads. Some of the other menu items we’ve heard about are roasted asparagus and goat cheese quesadillas, hoisin rib tacos with cabbage slaw and pumpkin jalapeno and feta tacos. The menu will change with the seasons. For a kick try their signature Red Hot sauce.

As well as tacos Red Hot offered chips with either salsa or guacamole and for the sweet-toothed cupcakes from Sweet Scetti. The Mexican inspired flavors tres leche, sweet polenta green chili and dark chocolate chili cupcakes with cream cheese cinnamon butter cream were a good complement to the trucks savory offerings and great value at $1 each.

Red Hot are planning a regular downtown lunch location at Gay and Grant. We’ll update when we know which days of the week.

    Saw the truck today serving lunch in the parking lot outside of 2500 Corporate Exchange Dr, off of Cleveland Ave, one light south of I-270 in the north east side of town. This is the first building in the office plaza where the Embassy Suites is located.

    I never leave comments, but today, after eating at the red hot food truck, I had to. I was a little disappointed, actually. After hearing all of Monday how amazing it is, I was psyched, naturally, so I walked
    My lazy butt down the street and ordered a carnitas burrito. I did not get a carnitas burley, I received a chicken burrito, which happened to be very dry. Like I said, I was a little disappointed. However, the flavors were all there, I was just really wanting some carnitas!!
