A food truck park featuring road trip-inspired eats served from vintage autos is now open in St. Paul.
You can visit the new Seventh Street Truck Park starting at 5 p.m. Friday, to chow down on pizza, tacos, chicken and ice cream – plus there's a beer and wine spot to quench your thirst.
A news release promises "funky menu offerings" that will rotate in and out, so you get a different experience on each visit. And everything is served indoors under a "quirky campsite-style atmosphere" that COO Brian Ingram says should harken back to vintage road trips.
Here are the current menus:
Highlights the organizers mention include buttermilk fried chicken, Kool-Aid-based cocktails, and pizza with "bizarre toppings."
“With our old-school vibe and groovy décor, we invite our guests to flash back in time to piling into the family station wagon, cranking up an eight-track, and spending hours on end playing the license plate game, all while enjoying their favorite road trip fare," Ingram says in the release.
The space includes several classic vehicles, including a 1979 Winnebago and a 1970 VW Bus, that have been retrofitted to be full-service kitchens (like a food truck).
The truck park is the work of M5 Management, the company that owns New Bohemia Wurst + Bierhaus. The park is located at 214 7th St. West in St. Paul, just a block away from the Xcel Energy Center.
