Hello, FORT WORTH FOOD PARK!!!
As a devout follower of Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race,” which recently completed its second season, I was thrilled to find out that I could scratch road trip to NYC so that I can consume a grilled cheese sandwich bought off a truck from my to-do list (OK, I still want to do that, but you know what I mean). Heck, hitting the various food trucks in Austin (which has had its own race representative), has typically been a highlight of any of my trips down I-35.
Now, a north Texas denizen has to trek no further than Fort Worth for a moveable feast. The doors (and windows) to Cowtown’s new food truck park have officially opened. Shoot, Fort Worth might now be considered the states food truck capital soon enough.
For now, the park will be open for dinner on Thursday and for lunch and dinner on Friday-Sunday. Located in a lesser urbanized area of Fort Worth, tenants are hoping to expand their services to six days a week as the spring season and even other developments move in. Plans are also in the works for a horseshoe pit and a children’s sandbox, in hopes of creating a destination spot for families. But for the time being, the six food trucks currently slinging burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, tacos, and cupcakes, will create quite the destination spot for me and anyone else with a similar food truck obsession.
Here’s some of the trucks offering up their brand of goods…
