Stuff’d Wings, a Houston food truck devoted to chicken wings stuffed with Southern sides, will open its first brick-and-mortar south of the Third Ward this summer.
Proprietor Jarrod Rector plans to debut the new expanded Stuff’d concept with additional menu items at 6402 Tierwester Street in June. He’s been road-testing the new location since last fall when he bought the building by serving up stuffed wings from his food truck parked in front. The 2,400-square-foot space will seat 100 diners within interiors that feature black-and-white, industrial-meets-farmhouse decor. The space touts an open kitchen and a patio separated from the indoor dining room by retractable garage doors that will be opened during nice weather.
Currently, the Stuff’d truck serves up chicken wings stuffed with mac ‘n’ cheese, four types of New Orleans-style boudin sausage, and a couple of dirty rice varieties. Once Rector’s brick-and-mortar opens, his menu will expand to include burger patties stuffed with cheeses and jalapeños, salmon and catfish stuffed with etouffee, and loaded stuffed fries. Stuff’d’s permanent location will also offer up beer and wine, plus desserts like a stuffed banana pudding that Rector sold out of when testing it at the food truck recently.
Stay tuned for Stuff’d official brick-and-mortar opening date, and in the meantime, snag its stuffed wings at its food truck parked at 6402 Tierwester Street.
