Catch these 5 food trucks before Houston Grub Park moves their location

3 min read

Among the new foodie spots in the vastly growing city of Houston, Houston Grub Park opened last summer with the aim of highlighting Black-owned businesses.

The park has been operating minutes away from NRG, at the corner of 610 and Fannin, in the old Sam’s Club parking lot, which on the weekends is now filled with food trucks and old-school R&B and hip hop tunes.

This week, Houston Grub Park announced it will be moving and reopening in a different location in June, but patrons have until May 2 to take advantage of the offerings. Here are five food trucks to check out.

Barnes Treats

Barnes Treats serves homemade desserts priced around $4, such as strawberry lemonade cookies that have a soft texture and the right amount of sweetness. Other treats include banana pudding, brownies and blondies.

Fairy Sweet Lemonade

Started by 7-year-old entrepreneur Jaida Leona in 2019, Fairy Sweet Lemonade features various flavors of lemonade such as strawberry-peach. They are served cold in a 16-ounce pouch with a yellow squiggle straw.

Mary Ellen’s Kitchen

This red-and-white food truck’s “It’s the sauce for me” slogan is fitting as the citrusy aromas from Mary Ellen’s Kitchen quickly fill your nostrils. Owner Isaac Mitchell’s sauces have a kick; flavors include Spicy Garlic Parmesan and Cajun in various heat levels. The shrimp and crab plate is a crowd favorite and the truck serves crawfish during the season.

Saucy Nosh

Saucy Nosh’s Southern stuffed eggrolls are the size of a burrito and come with French fries and dipping sauce. The top sellers are the Brisket Mac-N-Cheese and the Crawfish Etouffée eggrolls; the latter is stuffed with crawfish tails and dirty rice. The sweet eggrolls are medium-sized and include Apple Pecan Pie and Peach Cobbler topped with powdered sugar.

Stewart Brotha’s Bar B Que

Chef and co-owner Mike “Big Mike” Stewart has been serving his Texas barbecue at Houston Grub Park since it opened in July 2021. He says he’s proud to have a space dedicated to Black-owned businesses. Stewart Brotha’s combo meals come with your choice of up to five meats, two sides, bread and homemade barbecue sauce. Options include ribs, brisket, baked beans and mac n’ cheese.
