In the latest food truck news: Short Leash is moving into a brick-and-mortar location (and keeping its truck), you can buy the former Epic Hot Dogs mobile kitchen on eBay, and now, Mike's Kitchen & BBQ is pulling into the parking lot -- permanently.
The food truck got rolling in the spring of 2011, traveling to spots like the Surprise farmers market and cities such as Peoria, Glendale, Phoenix, and Mesa to sell barbecue-centric dishes such as pork and brisket hash and eggs, pulled pork, and barbecue sandwiches.
A farewell post on the company's Facebook page had this to say:
"I have to say sorry for the delay in this post, but I have decided to close up the pit and move on. My hope is that y'all enjoyed the Q and that I may have inspired some of you to get out and throw some meat on the grill.
