There’s no park like a food truck park, and with so many yummy food options in one place to choose from, we can understand why! Just when you thought parks couldn’t be any more fun, am I right?
And now, members of the Everett community can join in on the excitement of such unique foodie experiences by visiting the city’s very own Beverly Food Truck Park and trying all the yummy food options they offer!
All About the Beverly Food Truck Park
Back in 2020, it was simply an unused city lot across from Fire Station 5 in central Everett, but now the lot at 6731 Beverly Boulevard is home to a myriad of local food trucks.
Since the city owns the large gravel lot that the park sits on, Beverly Food Truck Park has been the city’s first attempt to establish a food truck park. The City of Everett’s Economic Development Department teamed up with the Washington Food Truck Association to make the park possible.
Those curious about what trucks are at the food park can keep an up-to-date watch thanks to the Association’s website that hosts the rotating schedule of trucks, giving patrons a chance to try something new with each visit. The website also has information about the trucks, including viewable menus, directions, and reviews for those looking for those five-star dishes. Patrons can visit the park anytime Monday through Saturday from as early as 4:00 a.m. until 7 p.m. There is even an app available for mobile orders, so you can skip the lines and order ahead at your favorite trucks using the Street Food Finder app.
And since there’ll be so many trucks to choose from in the app, here’s a brief run-down of some trucks that frequent the park.
The Big Red Truck
Owned and operated by Chef Tony’s Catering is the Big Red Truck. Chef Tony has more than 29 years of culinary and hospitality experience, so you know you’ll be greeted with a smile and some delicious food. Whether you’re stopping in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you’ll taste hints of Italian, Spanish, Asian and American classic cuisine, depending on which dish you pick. They’re famous for their homemade lasagna, BBQ pulled pork, chili lime street tacos, and loaded mac n’ cheese. Don’t forget to try their sandwiches, too — they’re big and delicious!
Split Open and Melt
Keeping it simple but oh-so-delicious is Split Open and Melt. Serving Seattle cheesesteaks is what they do best, and boy do we agree! All their cheesesteaks are made with fresh ingredients from scratch, including their mouthwatering fries. They make appearances at the park throughout the month, with their assigned days to be there on their online monthly schedule. Stop on in and try their signature dishes, such as the spicy “Been you to Habenero, man?,” their vegetarian “Crimini,” or the namesake melt the truck is named after, “the split open and melt.”
Captain’s Cod Company
Founded by Alaskan fishermen for seafood lovers everywhere is Captain’s Cod Company. Captain Bay Lloyd and Captain Shaun Andrew frequently set sail with the finest and most advanced fishing vessels to catch 100% sustainable Wild Alaskan cod to serve the good people of Everett and more. Captain Shaun is the captain of the 187 ft., F/V Northern Leader, the flagship where the absolute finest cod is harvested year-round. Each fish is processed and frozen at sea within one hour of being caught, sealing in the freshest quality possible. Once it is shipped from the Dutch Harbor Alaska docks to Captain’s Cod Company, it is hand prepared specially for their customers. It’s from their boat to your basket, no matter which menu item you pick, they’re all fin-tastic dishes!
Offering a delicious fusion of Mexican and Cuban heritage in the form of unique dishes with a fusion of flavors that best represent both cultures is Mexicuban. The food truck is the first of its kind in Puget Sound to offer such a Latin blend and has devoted itself to bringing its patrons nothing but the best. It’s as if the truck was born to bring an explosion of flavors to your taste buds, which is evident by everything from their signature creation of Fluffy Tacos to their famous Cuban sandwich. Check their website’s calendar to try them yourself the next time they’re at Beverly Food Truck Park.
Being the first in the Pacific Northwest to bring authentic Central Asian street food, spices and flavors to the region is Tabassum. They first rolled out their halal food truck in January 2017 and have been happily serving in Everett at various new places and favorite event locations. The Beverly Food Truck Park has made its way to their location list, where you can stop in and get a taste of their comfort food called Samsa, with roots nearly as far back as the routes of the Silk Road, coming from a region tucked between the Caspian Sea, China and Russia. Today these tasty buns are one of Asia’s most popular street foods, and they can’t wait to share this experience of authentic Asian cuisine with you!
Since 2015 Zaytoona has been Puget Sound’s favorite choice for Mediterranean eats. The colorful truck provides a variety of tasty delights, from lamb and beef gyro salad to Arabic shawarma sandwich, Greek fries, dolma, handcrafted falafels, and of course, that famous flaky pastry made with honey and chopped nuts, baklava! Stop in and let them transport your tastebuds across the seas while enjoying the beauty of Everett at the food truck park.
Of course, these are just a few of the many food trucks we expect to see grace Beverly Food Truck Park with their presence, so be sure to keep an eye out on their Facebook page and Washington Food Truck Association calendar. We’re confident you’ll have a new food truck favorite for every day by the time the week’s over!
