Seventh Street Truck Park in St. Paul officially opens its doors to their 1970 VW bus, 1979 Winnebago, and the rest of their iconic lineup of vintage vehicles turned food-trucks today at 5 p.m. to the public. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., patrons should fasten their seat-belts because the great American road trip has been brought indoors in what is destined to become one of the area’s most sought after hotspots. With a quirky campsite-style atmosphere and a menu chock-full of guilty pleasures, Seventh Street Truck Park delivers the ultimate communal dining experience.
The retro food-hall was brought to life by M5 Management, the parent company behind New Bohemia Wurst + Bierhaus, one of the fastest-growing concepts in the area. Inspired by a cross-country trek to unearth the nation’s best local eateries, M5’s executive team collaborated with Shea Design to channel the most memorable meals and one-of-a-kind experiences from each city into the concept of Seventh Street Truck Park.
“We couldn’t be more excited to share our vision for Seventh Street with the public,” says COO Brian Ingram. “With our old-school vibe and groovy décor, we invite our guests to flash back in time to piling into the family station wagon, cranking up an eight-track, and spending hours on end playing the license plate game, all while enjoying their favorite road trip fare.”
Serving up great American road trip-inspired classics with a twist such as crispy buttermilk fried chicken, giant ice cream sandwiches, Kool-Aid based cocktails, tacos with all of the fixings, and pizzas with bizarre toppings, the funky menu offerings will rotate to give guests a unique culinary experience from one visit to the next. Seventh Street Truck Park captures the nostalgia of childhood summer breaks spent pitching tents, roasting marshmallows, and catching fireflies mixed with visits to the county fair’s snack windows between Ferris wheel and bumper car rides. With live music and tailgate party games, there is plenty of entertainment to be found and, rain or shine, summer camp is in session all year long at Seventh Street Truck Park.
