The Bacon Truck to Open a Brick-and-Mortar Restaurant in Charlestown

by Marc Hurwitz

The people behind a food truck that features a beloved food item will be opening a brick-and-mortar spot in an historic section of Boston.

Boston Magazine is reporting (via a Facebook post) that The Bacon Truck will soon be joined by a restaurant in Charlestown, with the people behind the business saying that the new eatery could be opening sometime in February. Little other information has been given on the place--though it appears that it could be called The Bacon Truck Cafe based on a hashtag--so stay tuned for more updates, including an exact address.

Sam Williams and J.J. Frosk debuted The Bacon Truck in the fall of 2013, offering a variety of bacon-based items such as candied bacon, bacon scallion hash, and several sandwiches containing bacon. The website for The Bacon Truck can be found at http://www.bostonbacontruck.com/

[January 3 update: An update added to the Boston Magazine article mentions that The Bacon Truck's brick-and-mortar restaurant will be located in the former Prescott space at 50 Terminal Street, which is by the start of a small peninsula formed by Little Mystic Channel and the Mystic River at the northern edge of Charlestown. The update also says that the new spot will be a commissary kitchen and cafe offering breakfast and lunch.]

[April 6 update: A Facebook post from the business says that The Bacon Truck Cafe opens on Saturday, April 14.]
