Mobile Mexican restaurant up and running in Rapid City


The food truck craze has reached Rapid City, the form of mobile Mexican food.

Sisters Pressie and Frances Velasquez grew up cooking in their mother's New Mexican kitchen. Years later, they fell in love with the Black Hills and moved everything they had from their homes in Colorado.

The sisters now own Cordilia's restaurant and a food truck to go with it. Cordilia's features a "take–and–bake" style menu—customers can buy premade food in bulk and heat it up at home.

Cordilia's has only been open for two weeks, but the sisters say it's been so busy that they have only been able to take the food truck out once—up to Belle Fourche. They say they hope to hire more employees to take the truck out to more events.

"We had a lot of fun with it," says one o the owners Pressie Velasquez. "It's nice meeting different people from different backgrounds, and letting them enjoy our food."

The restaurant features many traditional New Mexican dishes. They even import some of their chili peppers straight from New Mexico.
