Sloppy Joe Food Truck to Open in Boise

By Rachael Daigle |

Sloppy joe sandwiches are coming to a street near you … in a food truck.

Gernika veteran Jason Farber told BW today that he’s about a month out from opening up Archie’s Place, a food truck specializing in the tomato sauce and ground beef sandwich. But don’t get carried with visions of the barely edible meat-filled sammies of your elementary school lunch room. Farber plans to locally source the meat and the buns—the latter from Le Cafe de Paris—and slap it all together to order. Sides will include gourmet salads like potato and quinoa, and for the vegetarians among us, Farber will also offer a meatless sloppy joe option.

Archie’s Place, which is named after Farber’s son, will serve lunch Tuesday through Friday with rotating locations on the Bench and in downtown Boise. To get a jump on the foodie competition for an opening date and location, follow @archies_place on Twitter, check in on the truck’s Facebook page and check back here at Cobweb in the coming weeks.
