Old Souls Food Truck...
I don't know if they have noticed but Cathy and Mary are hitching a ride on the Old Souls Food Truck. We have hitched ourselves to the grub served up by Tom and Arron and can be found eating here on our off from work weeks whenever we have a chance. I guess we are good customers because Tom will let us play guitar in the ally between the Big Thicket Brewery and the Angelina Hotel. I must be a real good customer because he will even let me play the tuba there also.
Food trucks are something that have become all hip and cool in the big cities and we have quite a few of them in Lufkin. They have their roots in the cowboy chuck wagons of old, the lunch wagons that fed factory workers and the mobile canteens of the army used to serve hungry troops. The modern food truck puts a trendy spin on good fancy affordable eats.
Check out Old Souls for some combination of Cubano sandwiches, the pork and brisket tacos, slider hamburgers, turnip green soup and apple jack grilled cheese on the daily menu. Often times if you stand around long enough, play guitar loud enough or otherwise hang out Tom or Aaron will do a tasty one off treat for you.
The truck can be found downtown usually Thursday, Friday and Saturday lunch and supper but be sure to check their facebook page to see what's going on and given day.
Check out the event sponsored by Big Thicket and Old Souls. It's the singer/songwriter Joshua Black Wilkins who is making a stop on the way to SXSW on March 16th at 8pm.
