The food is in the northern style of cooking and is cooked with a wood fire; apple or mesquite. The previous owner of the restaurant grew up gathering wood for his family. His grandfather told him on day he would be the largest wood gatherer in the world. When he started the original restaurant he used wood to cook. The restaurant furniture and decorations reflect his history with wood. The new owners recently changed the name to pay homage to the wood; Tronco literally means piece of wood. They also added art work by Mexican artists as part of the d├ęcor.

There is 2,300 square feet of patio for diners to enjoy great food and the company of family and friends, along with a variety of cocktails, drinks and appetizers. In the kitchen the chef shares the secrets of a featured burrito and tops it with the famous chipotle tomato sauce, decorates it with sour cream and sliced avocado. It is a delicious northern Mexican dish ready to be enjoyed.
