Dining With Monkeys: MarksGrill FoodTruck | Restaurants
On Saturday, the fam and I went over to Overton Park to check out the lovely new dog park, Overton Bark. It took our old dogs a few minutes to figure out what was going on, but soon they were happily sniffing butts with the rest of Midtown's dogs.
Along with the grand opening, there was a food truck rodeo. That means they had the parking lot blocked off and several food trucks parked together. I find that very exciting. I was hoping to score some Fuel Truck tacos, but they were still at the Memphis Farmers Market with a few of my other favorite trucks--Central BBQ, Rockin Dough Pizza Co, and Healthylicious. On the bright side, it gave us a chance to try a new truck--MarksGrill. Yes, that's one word.
Satchel cannot resist any opportunity to eat a hamburger. He insisted on putting in his own separate order, and judging from this picture, pretending like he was not there with his lame family.
Jiro wanted a cheeseburger and I was sure Warren would eat whatever I ordered, so I took a minute to peruse the menu.
I had recently spoken to owner Mark Hamilton about his truck for a story I was working on for Edible Memphis. He told me that his truck is the most elaborate in the nation because the generator is on top. He also said his Philly Cheese Steaks are the real deal and that he gets the rolls straight from Philly, so it seemed like an obvious choice when deciding what to order. I forgot that he told me the BBQ pita was pulled pork on naan bread, or I might have gone with that. I love fish tacos, but I don't know about ordering them from a guy named Mark. (Kidding. Sort of.)
