As Texas natives, David Larraga and Sam Sanchez are bringing the flavors of the Southwest to Destin as the owners and operators of the In The Bag food truck.

"We wanted to be able to share what we love," Sanchez told The Log. "Just being able to bring these flavors to this area is really cool."

Slinging made-from-scratch tacos at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 98 and Airport Road in the old Destin Diner parking lot, In The Bag offers a carefully planned out menu with simple, but delicious tacos.

The four "signature" items all draw inspiration from what Larraga, Sanchez and their wives, Tristen and Bobbie like to eat themselves, whether it's the "956," the "Novia," the "Cuatro," or the "Sissy bowl."

The 956 features diced steak with cilantro, diced onions, sliced avocado, caramelized onions and queso fresco on a corn tortilla. Larraga said that 956 is the area code from where he grew up in Texas. The Novia, which means girlfriend, was created by Sanchez's wife and packs marinated chicken, shredded cheese and guacamole into a flour tortilla.

The Cuatro is Sanchez's signature creation and combines steak, guacamole, sour cream, queso fresco, and pico de gallo. The Sissy Bowl is served sans tortilla and offers up shredded lettuce, steak, refried beans, guacamole, diced onions, salsa, queso, and pico de gallo.

"There are only three meats on the menu, but they are so flavorful," Larraga told The Log. "They are all marinated for at least 3-4 hours."
