It’s a Big Dill That Bridge City Brinery Has Wheels!

Bridge City Brinery (BCB) is hitting the streets to barrel towards breweries, wineries, neighborhoods, and farmer’s markets galore as not your typical, “Run-Of-The-Dill-Pickle.” Savory, sweet and spicy, two chefs and co-owners of Bridge City Brinery, Mark Mammone and Joe Bardakos, are serving up a pickle-packed food truck with an expanding, new menu and other food offerings through their custom-built food truck. 

“We wanted to do a food truck before starting with pickles, and creating a menu concept to serve scratch, handmade menu items is becoming a reality,” says Mark Mammone. “Our pickles had such a great response, and we had wiggle room to build out a food truck, so we said, ‘let’s finally do a food truck!’”

Pickles are just the beginning for the creative culinarians. In just a few months, the full-scale food truck, decked out with BCB’s keystone label, a Smithfield Bridge inspired smokey backdrop, and sleek, black paint is ready to be noticed and savored with its dill-licious menu.

Everything on the menu will be made from scratch, including sauces, and meats are marinated to delectable and devour-able perfection. The menu consists of “sammiches” and sides, “N’at.” Some sammiches include BCB’s “The Graceland” consisting of fried chicken thigh, chili peanut glaze, banana ketchup, pickle, and home bread, and their “Seoul of Pittsburgh,” stacked with bulgogi, kimchi mayo, Korean seasoned fries, bok choy slaw, and home bread. Other charming classics will be hot and ready fried pickles, in which patrons can choose from BCB’s signature fermented Smithfield Sour or Smoky Hot Metal pickles, served with fried dill mayo.

Mammone says, “We’ve always had a passion for food and cooking. It’s fun for us and equally fun for the thought of interacting and seeing people’s faces when they enjoy our food.”

Plus, the BCB food truck will offer fresh, cold-packed pickles that will be jarred up straight from the built-in fridge. Pickle lovers can relish in the fact that it will be fermentation from BCB’s fridge straight to their fridge! The loaded food truck will also be serving homemade breads and pastries; it’s a win/win for foodies looking for an abundance of options from a versatile food truck.
