For a few set times during the week, Hey Joe! and other mobile kitchens won't be parking as much as they'll be popping up.
Brian and Margita Webb, who own Hey Joe!, the food truck serving Filipino cuisine, have purchased a 1920s bungalow, at 2237 North Seventh Street in Central Phoenix, and turned it into a kind of food truck pop-up restaurant. The converted space will serve as a dining room for guests who can enjoy street eats for lunch, dinner, or both, seven days a week from a Valley food truck parked outside. And Brian Webb tells me he's lining up some brick-and-mortar chefs to get in on the pop-up action as well.
Here's the Seventh Street bungalow's current food truck schedule, along with two special events from Hey Joe!
