There is a new restaurant in Wilson. Street Food at the Stagecoach opened last week in what was formerly the Stagecoach Grill and is a perfect stop after a bike ride on the pass or tube along Fish creek. New owners Marcos and Amelia Hatchard took no time at all getting the old restaurant transitioned. In only 24 hours, they made it their own, featuring some amazing street food from around the world.
With extensive culinary experience between the two of them, working at the Four Seasons, Sweetwater, and the Fine Dinning Group, they have a great grasp on what goes into opening up a new restaurant. They wanted to showcase international street food creating a food truck feeling in a permanent location. The food was reflective of this with some favorites like a cuban sandwich, banh mi and street tacos. Don’t worry if you made the trip out there for gyros, either. They kept them on the menu at the previous owner’s request.
I arrived shortly before noon and apparently the word had already gotten out as it was just starting to get busy. I could see already that the two made a great team, with Amelia jumping behind the line and helping out when things got busy.
The first thing I tried was the empanadas. They were flakey and delicious, served with a homemade chimichurri sauce. They make a great finger food and are offered in potato and cheese and beef. Next on the docket was the cuban sandwich. Perfectly pressed with house roasted pork, the sandwich was great. It wouldn’t be complete without the delicious house cut fries, too. The biggest thing I noticed was the fact that everything was being made in house whether that be the salsa verde that comes with the tacos, the slow roasted pork, or the chili garlic aioli on the banh mi.
They are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Feel free to call ahead and pick up your order too at 307-200-6633.
