UPDATED: Cedars Food Park, a food truck venue, nixes lunch
Dinner starts August 16.
Organizers Brad Friedman and Steve Jordan said that the food park represents the beginning of a collaboration between food trucks and Dallas Heritage Village.
"We're both enthusiasts of the Cedars area -- we're looking at building a development here," said Friedman. "We've both always thought the food truck thing was cool. We went to Gary Smith, who's president and executive director of Dallas Heritage Village, and he said that they were always trying to do things to get people over there. It's a phenomenal park."
The park has 20 acres, and Dallas Heritage Village is home to 38 historic 19th-century pioneer and Victorian homes and commercial buildings which have been moved there from throughout North Central Texas. The buildings will be open for touring at the grand opening.
Cedars Food Park will be open
every Wednesday-Friday for lunch, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Thursday evenings 5 to 10 p.m. starting August 16.
[UPDATE: Lunch has been nixed because of the heat. The park will be open Thursday nights starting August 16. Friday nights will begin August 31.]
It'll also be open on various days and evenings throughout the year, and can be reserved for private functions. The trucks will be parked under giant Cedar Elm shade trees, and the venue will provide air-conditioned eating areas.
Featured food trucks include: The Butcher’s Son, Café Con Leche, Cajun Tailgators, Crazy Fish, Coolhaus, Enticed, 4 Seasons, Free Wheel’n Café, Gandolfo’s, Good Karma Kitchen, Jack’s Chowhound, Nammi, Rock N Roll Taco, Rockin’ Ricks, Rockstar Bakeshop, Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, Ssahm BBQ and Three Lions. The Park will showcase a variety of local gourmet mobile food trucks and trailers, serving a wide range of food including street tacos, gourmet sliders, vegan and gluten-free dishes, deserts, ba’hn mi sandwiches, classic Italian, BBQ, and sushi.
