From local breweries to festivals, nothing beats a tasty meal made from scratch from a restaurant on wheels. We found three that can be found locally with interesting background stories and mouth-watering menus.
Heffernan BBQ has been in the Cypress area for over a decade. Run by a mother-and-son duo, Jeannie Heffernan and her son Evan, Heffernan BBQ was originally started by Jeannie’s husband, Bob, in 2009. When Bob passed away in 2017, Jeannie and Evan took over. They offer traditional BBQ including brisket, ribs, pulled pork and sausage with Bob’s homemade sauce. Jeannie uses her own recipes for the sides and desserts and Evan serves as pitmaster, staying true to Bob’s original concept while adding his own slant. Heffernan’s BBQ is regularly at Bridgeland’s Friday Night Bites and the Rosehill Beer Garden.
Funnelocity doesn't offer your average funnel cake. Instead, they create gourmet experiences! Established in 2020 by then fourteen-year-old Kayce, she along with her best friends, served her cakes from a tent for a year. Being a business-savvy teen CEO, she leveraged her profits to purchase her first food truck. The menu includes indulgent funnel cake creations with ice cream, cheesecake bites, peach cobbler, brownies, fresh strawberries, and many other decadent toppings over always-hot and always-fresh funnel cakes. The Funnelocity truck can be found at local festivals, private and community events, and even weddings! Check social media for weekly updates on locations.
Frank and Richard’s Food Truck is owned and operated by Troy Young, who named his Food Truck after his late grandfathers, the father figures and role models in his life. “They always told me to put forth my best, and that’s what I decided to do with this food truck.” Troy says “They taught me to work hard and the importance of taking care of family.” Sadly, both men have passed, but they left a lasting impact on Troy. He’s proudly living out what they taught him, through the flavorful dishes he serves from his food truck. Frank and Richard’s offers creole food with a twist, defining its cuisine as American-Creole, and offering delicious favorites like fried lemon pepper oxtails and birria oxtail tacos. The food truck can be found at local breweries.
