Since it hit the road in late September of last year, White Eyes Fresh Fry Bread, the food truck from Alice Roach, who founded the company six years ago, has been serving up her signature recipe for fresh (and frozen) fry bread topped with anything from beef and beans to honey and Nutella.
But as of late, Alice, who operates the company with her husband, John, has been looking for a more permanent home for her popular snack. And she's found one -- in Glendale.
At 11 a.m. Friday, February 1, White Eyes Fresh Fry Bread will open a permanent location at 20219 North 59th Avenue (59th and West Beardsley Road), in Glendale.
"It was time to give our loyal following a place they can find our authentic fry bread on a daily basis," says Alice.
To be open from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. from Monday through Saturday, the new 1,400-square-foot café will offer indoor and outdoor seating, carryout orders, and, on grand opening day, will give away free dessert fry bread between 2 and 5 p.m.
Diners can expect fry bread topped with savory ingredients including ground beef, carne asada, chicken, and red or green chili as well as sweet favorites such as chocolate, cinnamon sugar, honey, ice cream, and Nutella. Prices will range between $5 and $9.
The Roach's will continue to operate their food truck at festivals and events. To see where they'll be next, follow them on Facebook.
