We are proudly Chef Owned! Chef Scott Buchanan creates with an intensity. His food is anything but boring. He enjoys creating an experience, & pulling people from comfort zones. Whether it's through Fun Street Food or Upscale Multi-Course Dinners. With over 20 yrs experience working with Michelin Star & classically trained Chefs, Scott's passion for food is immeasurable.
Yellow City Street Food officially began when Husband-Wife team, Scott & Rin Buchanan, began selling gourmet tacos to the bar crowds in early 2013. A month later, they opened a tiny drive-thru spot with their best friend, Elliott Crews (rest in power, dear friend). After 3 yrs, it was imperative for Yellow City to expand. So, in 2016, Yellow City Street Food relocated & became YCSF Craft, incorporating a craft beverage program.
YCSF has since been featured on the Travel Channel, Texas Bucket list, & more! (LINKS BELOW!)
We're not only a team, we're a family! Each individual is a strong link in our Yellow City chain.
