"The fact that people took time out of their day to cast a vote for us means we are accomplishing our goal. I am glad to see a Georgia food truck acknowledged on a national level, because this state has some amazing trucks operated by some amazing people."
About 7,000 people voted, and after votes were counted and recounted, Blaxican came out on top.
"Blaxican" is a slang word used to describe biracial people of Mexican and African-American descent, and Turner says on his website that it was the perfect word to describe his Mexican soulfood fusion.
But Blaxican serves more than just collard green quesadillas and barbecue sweet potato fries. Using tips received on the food truck and donations made on the website, Blaxican said it serves the community by helping to feed people at a number of Atlanta shelters.
On Easter, for example, the Blaxican team fed about 100 foster children and families at United Methodist Children's Home in Decatur, using tips from customers.
