Stix and Buns at Lakewood Truck Park

The only time Mr. H and I have "dined in" since February was a recent visit to check out the new Lakewood Truck Park.

With plenty of outdoor and distanced seating, fire pits, umbrellas, and a good-sized outdoor bar (in addition to indoor seating and a large bar)...we thought it would be the best spot that we'd feel comfortable at during the pandemic. It was!
We stopped in on a particular Saturday for lunch in order to try the Stix and Buns food truck.
Man, it felt WEIRD to be out in public having a meal and a server bring us a adult beverage. But, oh so good.
That one experience out gave us such a boost in mental health, and I highly recommend checking out the Lakewood Truck Park. You can visit their website or social media for a list of upcoming food trucks (1-2 at a time for lunch and dinner service daily). An east side location is in the works.

But we were really there for the food! Andre, the owner (and one of the sweetest people I've met in a long time) of the 4-month old food truck Stix and Buns reached out to me to come try his menu.

We had The Shrimp Po Boy ($10) and wow the seasoning and hand-breading on the shrimp and the remoulade sauce were so flavorful and perfect. I would order this again in a heartbeat.
I knew I couldn't resist the chance to try this new truck. I mean, come on, half the menu is meat on a stick. This truck was MADE FOR ME! 

We had to try the Chicken & Waffles Pop ($10). Dunk it in maple syrup, and it's a sweet and savory explosion in your mouth.
I've always said there isn't enough meat on a stick.
His most popular item is the Lobster Pop (Market Price), and again the seasoning, breading, and Thai dipping sauce were all fantastic.
Can you fall in love with a food truck? NOT asking for a friend. Currently only doing private catering, events, and the Lakewood Truck Park...track the truck down as it's so worth it.
