Lillie's Q Meat Mobile Launches Tuesday

lillie's q meat mobile

I was all set to tell you to keep an eye out for the latest food truck to hit the streets, the Lillie's Q Meat Mobile, at lunch today, but I received an email this morning letting me know its launch has been delayed until tomorrow due to mechanical difficulties. Which just means now you have more time to prepare.

The Meat Mobile will arrive at Ampco System Parking lot located at 28 N. Franklin St. around 11am. The wheeled outpost of the popular Wicker Park barbecue restaurant will serve Chef Charlie McKenna's pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches on brioche. The sandwiches are $10 (cash only) and come with either coleslaw or baked beans and a choice of one of Lillie's Q's five housemade sauces (Smoky, Hot Smoky, Carolina, Carolina Gold, Ivory) on the side.

Keep an eye on Facebook and of course Twitter for updates.

I don't know about you, but I'm just so excited to have more TRUCKS on the streets. Especially in the loop. There's a ton of space down there and really, no real options for fast food.

I definitely agree, Donna. And the more there are, the more seriously City Hall will have to take the trend.

As someone who works in the suburbs, I'm totally jealous of how many food trucks are in the city.
