A new food truck is in town, and it’s readily finding a gourmet slow-roasted niche on the South Coast.

Georgia’s Smokehouse debuted in Santa Barbara this month under owner-chef Brian Parks, formerly executive chef of the Coast restaurant at the Canary Hotel.

His wife, Alissa, is also working in the mobile kitchen, which serves up home cooking with a spicy, saucy kick.

Parks told Noozhawk this week that business is gaining momentum at several weekly lunch and dinner parking locations, including at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital and Jordano’s on Eckwell.

A schedule of its parking locations can be found by clicking here.

The couple, who have been planning to roll out the truck for a year, also cater for special events.
