Food trucks came roaring onto the Huntsville scene a few years ago, propelled by Downtown Huntsville’s Street Food Gatherings and updated zoning laws which are slowly making more areas available to them. The gatherings were hugely popular, which meant a long wait in line for the early birds and sold out offerings for late comers. Some food trucks had default locations or regular schedules, but many varied day to day and week to week, making it difficult to know where to find them.So I was delighted when Pinhook Provisions opened up.
The concept is a simple one–they are a “street food park”. Various food trucks and tables set up on a rotating basis in the outdoor space. Indoors, in the “Canteen” is a permanent dining area which allows you to dine in climate controlled comfort. In addition to heating and air conditioning the space offers restrooms, televisions, a dedicated kids area with a box of dress up items and a large chalkboard area, and free wifi. There are plans to add permanent coffee and beer vendors to the indoor space however currently all food and beverages are sold by the vendors outdoors.
The decor is minimal, playing up the reclaimed/distressed style which is so popular right now. One wall is covered with reclaimed wood, which extends down onto a bench seat. The tables are made of wood and the seats are a mix of wood and metal. Strands of overhead bulbs supplement the ceiling light panels.
