By Jennifer McInnis | jmcinnis@express-news.netCameron Davies refurbishes and outfits custom cars as owner of 210 Customs and Cruising Kitchens. He is also the proud new owner of Boardwalk on Bulverde, San Antonio’s first mobile food truck park. Initial vendors include Bistro Six, Cambo’s Cantina, DUK Truck, G&G Mobile Bistro, K-Hill BBQ Company, Saweet Cupcakes, Tin Can Tacos and Wheelie Gourmet.

Nearly 250 people turned out for the soft launch last weekend, and Davies has big plans for his “little white trash heaven.” Davies is planning to celebrate New Year’s Eve with dinner service and a toast.

Hours of operation are 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, with most of the trucks serving lunch and dinner with a break between. Each food truck’s hours and social networks are listed on Boardwalk on Bulverde is at 14732 Bulverde Road. Tip: The best route to take is Wetmore from Loop 410.

What made you decide to open Boardwalk on Bulverde?

I saw how much money that they put into building these trucks, and then they could only go out a couple days a week at Pearl or around town. … I wanted to build a place that is just ours. They don’t have to worry about being bothered. Health inspectors will still come out here, but they (the trucks) don’t have to worry about being too close to somebody or doing the same food.

How many trucks are here?

There are eight, including Cambo’s Cantina and four or five more that want to come onboard. I could have up to 15 to 20 trucks if I really wanted to.

What has been the reaction so far?

They love it. I’ve had, honestly, probably 15 or 20 groups of people say that they drive to Austin once a week just to do what they get to do here locally. Everybody who has come says they love the concept, they love the idea, they love the food. The response has been amazing. … It’s cool because the majority of the people that have come get something from every truck.

You are planning to have a bar set up?

Cambo’s Cantina. We’re waiting on the final paperwork from TABC. It will probably be the end of January, mid-February. Until then, it’s BYOB. And the bar’s going to be cool. If you come in and buy a bottle of wine, I’m going to give you two wine glasses. You give them back to me at the end and I etch your name on them and hang them in the bar. Same thing with beer mugs.

What kind of special events will you do?

We’re going to do a movie night. We’re building a 16-by-16-foot screen. I want it to look like a drive-in. All the tailgating games for the Spurs, the Cowboys, the Longhorns. We’re working out the logistics.

What else are you planning to add?

We’re going to add another playscape, we’re going to add a dog run. … There are sand pits that we’re going to put bartops and barstools over there. Horseshoes, washers, we’ll eventually put a gaming station in for kids so they can play video games.

Are you going to have a grand opening?

Grand opening is Jan. 8. Ranger Creek and Miller Lite are supplying all the booze.
