The restaurant world’s love affair with barbecue looks to be taking root in the mobile scene too. There’s Raney Bros BBQ, Pinky’s Kitchen in Wallingford, and now Rollin Q. Behind the wheel is husband-wife team Michelle and Darrell Lowe. On Wednesday they had their first run, in South Lake Union.
Front and center on the menu is Texas-style barbecue, something the born-and-bred Lone Stars take quite seriously—their truck is pimped out with a custom wood smoker. Other offerings (he handles the savories, she the sweets) may include chicken and waffles, gumbo (reportedly a must-try), wings, Texas chili, and desserts such as pecan and sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, or banana pudding.
Michelle says the truck is parking at Boren and Harrison on Friday and at California and Edmonds on Saturday. Then it’s the Fremont Sunday Market, aka the new go-to for street food enthusiasts.
