The Boneyard Food Truck

The Boneyard Food Truck

Q: What sparked the interest to start The Boneyard?

A: Owning a full service commercial kitchen on wheels was the natural progression for me because I have always loved to make great food in the strangest places.  My friends have enjoyed my efforts for years. Sharing that food with the public was only a dream.  From parking lots to fancy homes, corporate headquarters to wedding receptions, preschools to University Campuses, The Boneyard food truck has allowed me to fully realize my love of food and people in the most unpredictable places.

Q: What kind of food does your truck serve and what inspired that choice of cuisine?

A: Inspired by the SF Bay Area’s best Backyard Barbeques and a primal urge to feast together, the Boneyard Food Truck celebrates our position at the top of the food chain. Our meats are smoked and roasted to succulent perfection every day. Paired with fresh homemade breads and seasonal side dishes, we create exciting flavor combinations that are sure to awaken your inner carnivore. Meat your destiny.

Q: What do you recommend first time visitors try at your truck?

A: Our slow smoked Barbecue alone is really amazing with slaw and BBQ beans. Take it to the next level by adding a seasoned fried egg and some spicy bacon aioli.  Order the Cally Bowl.

Q: What’s the best part about serving at the SF State campus?

A: The best part about serving food on the SFSU campus is meeting the great variety of students and staff members that make up the community there.  Everyone seems so positive and excited.  Maybe exam schedules will change that?

Q: What’s something most people don’t know about your truck?

A: The Boneyard Food Truck was built as a catering truck in 1983.  It has over 430K miles.  I always wonder about her past lives.
