Wood Truck BBQ

As one of Beechwood Grill’s food trucks, Wood Truck BBQ serves up slow-smoked, tangy barbecue dishes. Try the Asian pork tacos, made with smoked pork, chipotle barbecue sauce, Asian slaw and sriracha. The pork parfait is also a hit — layers of smoked pork and beans topped with coleslaw. The truck also serves up a new special every week as well as signature sides — try the mac and cheese, you won’t regret it.

Located across from Cityside Middle School in Zeeland, Wood Truck BBQ operates Tuesdays–Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit Wood Truck BBQ’s Facebook page.
