Fans of smash-style burgers and Nashville hot chicken have a reason to get excited about two new offerings from Meat & Co., the sandwich-centric food truck at Zocalo Food Park, 636 S. 6th St. in Walker’s Point.

The new menu items, which include a smash-style burger and a deli-style Nashville hot chicken sandwich, will roll out beginning on Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Here's what's in store

The Zocalo Burger will feature two 3-ounce smashed patties, Cooper’s Sharp American cheese, shaved red onion and burger sauce on a pillowy soft Martins potato roll ($13). Expect a classic smash burger with crisp, hard-seared patties and a classic burger flavor.
