Truck Yard will once again be allowed to host its namesake food trucks after getting a green light from the city of Houston.
The Dallas export for cold beer, frozen cocktails, and food truck fare debuted in EaDo last May at 2118 Lamar Street, only to be told by the city in August that the food trucks that inspired its name had to go. According to reporting by Houston Food Finder, the city’s health department alleged that Truck Yard didn’t have the correct permit on file to allow food trucks to operate on the premises, an allegation the bar flatly denied. The fire marshal also found a potential fire hazard with one of the structures on Truck Yard’s site, which the bar has since remedied. Apparently, it took six months for Truck Yard to sort out all of the issues with the city.
Come this weekend, drinkers will find a rotating assortment of local food trucks parked on the premises, legally, including El Guajillo and Muiishi Markirritos on Friday, Twisted Catfish and Coreanos on Saturday, and Wokker and Rich Boy Po Boys on Sunday. Truck Yard will also debut a new private karaoke room in one of the shipping containers on site. The “Karaoke Container” can fit up to 15 people, costs $25 to reserve, and comes with a hourly drink minimum, so no sober karaoke allowed, apparently.
