Food truck court soon coming to Pearl District

Quote
TULSA - Mitch Neely and Phillip Phillips both have individual plans to open up their own food trucks. But they’re working together to open up the first and only food truck court in Tulsa.
“They’re popular in other cities like Austin and Portland and I said why not Tulsa,” Neely said. “A lot of people like food in Tulsa.”
A vacant lot on 6th Street and South Quincy Avenue will soon be a one-stop shop for foodies. They hope to have four trucks parked there daily all offering different menus.
Phillips said he hopes to have a miniature 6th Street like in Austin.
“It was my first introduction to food truck eateries,” he said. “There were 5 trucks on the lot with parking benches. It was a fun atmosphere, everyday you could go in there, there was something fun and exciting. The trucks would rotate so you’d have something new every couple of weeks. ”
Phillips, a musician, is trading his instruments for something he’s also naturally talented in, cooking. His Lone Wolf Banh mi truck will specialize in Vietnamese cuisine.
“I have a background in Asian cooking,” Phillips said.  “We started trying some different recipes and discovered we can make a pretty incredible banh mi. ”
Neely, a former accountant will specialize in gourmet burgers, wraps and BBQ tacos among other things. His Grub Truck has a health inspection in a few days and he’ll be ready to hit the road with his new business endeavor.
“I’ve been looking for restaurants in town and I found this was a cheaper way to do it,” Neely said.
The two will depend on social media to help their customers keep up with their daily stops around the city. You can follow Neely on Twitter at @GrubTruckTulsa and Phillips @lonewolfbanhmi.
Both have worked at local restaurants and say they hope to change the negative perception people have about food trucks.
“We have the same health standards as a restaurant. You’ll just be able to get it with no pretension here and at a cheaper price,” Phillips said.
The food trucks are set to open in the next few weeks.

I think it’s a very cool idea and a good way for competent chefs to have a successful business without the high overhead of a fixed spot somewhere.

Plus they will be about 5 blocks from Lola's Airstream trailer.

I've visited the Food Trailer Park in Austin on South Congress.  Great idea for Tulsa and in typical fashion about 4-5 years behind.

I heard that there will be a public education period on Form Based CODES before a final decision is made. I bet they wont reach the audiance that needs the education.

Indeed. I seriously doubt the people who think that form based codes mean they have to move another family into their house, pave over their front lawn, build a second house in their back yard, and run over their dog with their SUV on the way to take it to the junk yard so they can ride the bus from now on will bother to investigate the thing they're upset about.

You are sounding almost as depressing as a lot of Country songs.

Irrational fears are the basis of about half of all the country songs ever written, so I'm not surprised.  Tongue

Some people I know lead lives about like a country song.  They must be the other half with rational fears.

What happens when you play a country song backwards?

You get your wife back, the trailer home back, your job back, and your dog comes back home to the trailer park.

We're so boned.  The agressively ignorant rednecks in this town are the one's really in charge.  Most of the time they aren't looking, so we get our hopes up that things might change.  Then they swoop in just in time to stop anything from happening.  It's the way this burg works.

I know, I'm just a little ray of sunshine.
