FOOD TRUCK: Big Ron’s Curbside Bistro

Just when you thought the curb outside your office building couldn’t get more crowded with food trucks, along comes “Big” Ron Jones, formerly a bar manager at Dawson’s on Main in Speedway, offering up Big Ron’s Curbside Bistro. For the last two week, the mobile food purveyor has been offering up unique takes on hearty sandwiches, loaded hot dogs, soups, and salads, as well as tasty gumbo and cornbread. Jones’s pulled pork sandwich definitely made for a “big” weekday lunch: thick shreds of pork shoulder slow-cooked with Sriracha piled on thick-cut wheat bread with garlic butter and plenty of Carolina-style tangy-sweet coleslaw.

Ultra creamy mac ‘n’ cheese made with white cheddar on shell pasta completed this stick-to-your ribs workingman’s lunch, though we had to give a selection of cookies and bite-sized desserts a look before we headed back to work.
