Truck Yard on Lower Greenville is where I'll be parked

Mixologist Emily Perkins with Jason Boso
Jason Boso, Chef and Proprietor of Twisted Root Burger Co. and Tacos and Avocados, hosted a media "hard hat tour" on Tuesday for his newest venture, Truck Yard.  This new food truck park is slated to make its debut sometime mid-to-late August (fingers crossed) on Lower Greenville, right across from Trader Joe's.

Truck Yard will feature rotating food trucks serving lunch and dinner to area diners, as well as a permanent restaurant and bar where Boso will serve cheesesteak sandwiches. Located on a 15,000 square foot lot, the Truck Yard will accommodate four rotating trucks, patio furniture, picnic tables, fire pits and various bar games – as well as plenty of shade trees – giving locals a fun and unique spot to hangout on the popular Greenville strip.

Boso has also announced that he’ll introduce his own restaurant at the park. Converted from a former mechanic’s shed, the 2,000 square foot space will serve thinly sliced ribeye cheesesteaks grilled right in front of customers.  In addition to the food, the restaurant will feature a full bar with 18 mostly-local draft beers and outdoor-friendly cocktails like sangria, mint juleps and margaritas.

Eater Dallas published a fun list of Ten Things You Should Know About Truck Yard today. My favorite is #6 which talks about a treehouse in one of the trees in the Yard. Sounds like it will be more of an elevated deck than an actual treehouse that will hold about 14 people - which is still way cool.  This is where you will find me.

 “Dallas has really embraced the food truck concept, and I’m so excited to create a permanent space for food trucks in Dallas as well as to unveil my new restaurant concept,” said Jason Boso. “In creating the Truck Yard, I’m hoping to continue the revitalization of Lowest Greenville and to build a community where diners can experience great food in a comfortable, fun setting.”

 The Truck Yard will be located at 5624 Sears Street, Dallas, TX 75206,
