Simply Steve's Food Truck shuts down after 10 years

It was one of the earlier food trucks to roam the Twin Cities before the explosion in popularity.

The owner of one of the Twin Cities longest-running food trucks is closing it down after a decade slinging burgers.

Steve Ramlow, the man behind Simply Steve's Food Truck, announced Sunday that his truck is "no more."

"After a wonderful 10 run Simply Steve’s Food Truck is no more. Don’t cry for me, I’ve met so many great people and been to so many fun events it was a blast," he wrote. "I can’t thank you all enough, from my customers to employees and all the people that gave me a chance to serve them, it’s been unbelievable."

Simply Steve's was one of the earliest food trucks to roam the streets in the Twin Cities as it launched in 2010, before the food truck boom of the mid-2010s.

Prior to the food truck, the Star Tribune reported he worked in a cafeteria in an office building that lost its major tenant, prompting him to take to the road.

Now he'll be bringing his cookery talents to a new venue.

"If you ever need to have a Cajun Turkey Burger or Burrito Cubano or Black Bean Burger, all you have to do is check into Osseo Gardens Assisted Living and I’ll hook you up!" he posted.
