Yadira’s homecooked meals have been enjoyed by many people, Jonathan said.

“When my brothers come for hunting, they seemed to enjoy it,” Jonathan said. “And we have done a fundraiser for a local church.”

They have been stationing the food truck in Bronson on the weekends when it works with his business schedule, he said.

“We are positioned at the old gas station on Hwy. 54 in Bronson,” he said. “The property is owned by the Perry’s of Perry’s Pork Rinds.”

They also do catering.

“We have also set up at the Uniontown Elementary School for their in-service for teachers (in October),” he said.

To discuss the catering menu and prices, please call one month in advance at  (620) 215-4247, he said.

“There are lots of options and pricing would depend on what they would like,” Jonathan said.


The Barbosa’s are a busy family, Yadira is a full-time mom to the couple’s three children and is pregnant with their fourth child.

Jonathan owns a fencing company, and also is a sub-contractor for a Kansas City company that sets up in-ground swimming pools, he said.

Yadira is Lupe Santana’s sister, who owns the La Hacienda Restaurant in Fort Scott. The brother and sister are from central Mexico.
