Going to a concert at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheater in Tampa? Do not settle for weak cocktails and over priced frozen corn dogs. Instead, visit a yellow truck advertising a die-hard foodie’s Kryptonite: Fried pickles and an inventive cross between a Cuban sandwich and a Monte Cristo, known as the Monte Castro.
Forsake the corn dogs and wander over to Dochos Concession, where concert goers are greeted by a friendly boy with the confidence of a herald who knows, with food wisdom beyond his years, that patrons are about to have a spectacular sandwich revelation.
After chatting with Debbie Guy, the creator and mistress of Dochos Concession, diners will be completely charmed and eager to sample her favorites, The Monte Castro and The Twisted Italian. Fans of food truck fair will fall in love with her and her family immediately; even die-hard Michelle Faedo fans will be impressed by Debbie Guy’s deep-fried version of Ybor City’s beloved Cuban Sandwich.
Debbie does the Cuban sandwich proud in new and inventive ways that give Michelle a run for her money. The deep-fried Monte Castro is a cheap food favorite. The Monte has just the right balance of traditional pork flavor and unexpected Sriracha kick. A meal from Dochos will cost the average diner less than $10 and easily feeds two.
Dochos Concession is not a diet-friendly stop, but it will satisfy hungry concert-goers for half the price of any other concession in the amphitheatre.
Not headed to a concert anytime soon? Tampa food lovers can find Dochos Concession at most Tasting Tampa Rallies.
