7th & Fig To Welcome Food Trucks; Barbecue King Closes


A bunch of lunch news for the people who work Downtown… first off, the bad.  The Original Texas Barbecue King (on 7th btw. Grand & Olive) has closed down.  It wasn’t the greatest BBQ of all time, but it was all we had in the area!  They are trying to find another location to relocate to in the Downtown Area.

And that’s not all the area lost over the holidays.  Because of construction on the new Target opening Downtown next year, the entire food court in the 7th & Fig complex has been closed down. But don’t get too upset, there’s a silver lining to this part of the story…

The plaza is working with “a local food truck association” to bring mobile eateries to 7th & Fig during renovations to make up for the lost options in the food court.  Already comfirmed: food court fave “George’s Greek Cafe” will be opening a food truck on the upper plaza Monday through Friday from 11am to 2pm.

  • I think the original one up on Fig is still open, right? I used to come here but then I realized I just didn’t like the bbq as much. Too bad though, it was nice to have the option in that area. Gentrification, what can you do about it.
