There's a jazzy splash of color among the sleek glass and chrome of Mission Bay these days, as the new food truck McGees Creole Cajun rolls out on weekdays from 8 am to 2 pm.
Owner Betty McGee is the real deal, a Louisiana-to-Bayview transplant with a stockpile of recipes from her family kitchen. Right now she's keeping the menu simple, with four varieties of seafood po-boys: grilled shrimp, grilled salmon, fried oyster, and fried catfish.
Each $8 sandwich is served on a soft sesame roll with pickles, tomato, lettuce, and tartar sauce and a side of fries. You can also skip the bun and get each item in a basket for $9. And for the time being, McGee is throwing in a home-baked beignet with all lunches.
