Food trucks have been popping up all around town, from the Green House Truck, to the Good Luck Food Truck, and the ever-so-kitschy Grillenium Falcon. Now, expect to spot another four-wheeled culinary wagon cruising around Dallas, as Jack's Chowhound is set to hit the road in the next week or two.
"The menu is something I have been working on for about six months, and what you see is something all my friends enjoyed the most," Jack Mooney, the mastermind behind Jack's Chowhound, tells us. The truck's menu offers everything from burgers to pulled-pork grilled-cheese sandwiches, meatball sliders, ice cream floats, pepperoni egg rolls and much more.
Mooney has been talking to the owners of Inwood Tavern about the possibility of parking his truck behind their building on the weekends. Other than that, he plans on "doing events, tailgate parties, catering, late night, festivals, you name it." As for now, keep an eye on his Facebook page and Twitter for details.
