What’s a good margarita on a warm summer day without a decent meal to pair it with? Luckily for Margarita Fest, fine catering is being provided by two of Lansing’s best food trucks — The Smoke N’ Pig and Maria’s Cuisine.

Pitmaster Gabe Jones started The Smoke N’ Pig in 2016, after 15 years of working in the food industry. Since the truck got its bearings, The Smoke N’ Pig’s finely roasted meat has earned numerous awards and accolades. It’s been voted the best barbecue, or best ribs, by the patrons of several festivals, including the Michigan Rennassaince Fest and Smokin’ Jazz & Barbecue Blues. The Smoke N’ Pig’s fiery red truck will be on deck at Margarita Fest whipping up all the tasty meat one can possibly eat.

Don’t think barbecue meshes well with margaritas? Don’t worry, Maria’s Cuisine is the absolute natural pairing for the wide variety of margaritas being offered. No sane person can argue that tacos and margaritas are not a match made in heaven.

Maria’s Cuisine is an Old Town staple and consistently delivers delicious authentic Mexican food, earning high praise from both locals and people coming in from out of town. They’ll be parked alongside the festival to provide an ever flowing stream of tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, nachos — you name it.
