Buttermilk Chicken Burrito, with chicken pieces mixed in spicy and buttery sauce, is one of their most popular burritos.

Mustafa Jones has been around since even before the burger bakar fever began. Hailing all the way from Brooklyn, Mustafa Jones and his business (and life) partner, Molly Jones use southern American recipes for their burgers, a region that’s famous for their grilled food. Their homemade patties are so thick that each one takes about 20 minutes on grill to make sure that all the flavours can seep in. There’s been comparisons of Mustafa Jones to Tony Roma’s, but some actually claimed that MJ is a lot better, and of course, cheaper. Find it out yourself and head over to their truck right away.
