J11 Gourmet Burgers is a family owned and operated food truck, serving at multiple locations in Texarkana.

With locations distributed both on the North and South sides of town, folks will find J11 as convenient as it is delicious.
On the menu, at the moment there are six outstanding burgers to choose from. All burgers are made from a 73% / 27% fresh ground chuck blend that ensures a juicy burger. The buns are baked fresh daily by a special process making the Artisan-Kaiser bun firmer and less likely to fall apart during the eating process.
“These are not kitchen sink burgers with flavors randomly thrown on there, they are crafted to reference memories. The Mama burger, for instance, will remind folks of eating at a Japanese steakhouse, while the Big Rock Burger is a tribute to Hawaii and is like an island vacation,” Rocky imparts.
Check out j11gourmetburgers.com for a full menu of options, ingredients, and sides; also keep up to date by checking their Facebook page. Rocky says he is happy for all the support on Facebook, but “likes” don’t keep the lights on, and “we need people to come out.”
The Lackman family does not see being in business as a one way street. “We intend on this being a community-business. We need to pay our bills, but we are also focused on giving back to the community. We are in the business of staying here and supporting the community. Family, community and church are our priorities,” Rocky said.
These values are reflected in the name “J11,” which is a reference to the first chapter and verse of the Gospel Of John.
As for future plans, Rocky and Sarah would like to one day have a brick and mortar hamburger and pizza place by the Texarkana A&M campus, while continuing to serve burgers around town in their food truck. Also, they are looking to expand the menu with more inspiring creations, yet Rocky stands firm,” We will not serve chicken.”
