“It’s always evolving,” says Michelle DeLoy, brand, internet and marketing business officer for the 15,000-square-foot, indoor-outdoor Truck Yard. That’s thanks to constant additions to the vintage, eclectic restaurant design. Even under a cloud of local curfews, the result is a lively atmosphere.
Much of the decor is repurposed junk: Old kegs serve as stools; the gutted Airstream trailer, now a bar, was a Craigslist find. The “Eat Here” marquee was made by rearranging the letters of a discarded warehouse sign. To save on food, Truck Yard sells only cheesesteaks out of the former garage space. A rotating cavalcade of food trucks dishes out sliders, hot dogs and more.
