Will ‘Whole Hog’ Food Truck Debut on Allen Street Tonight?

By BuffaloNews.com |

Late-night noshers are hoping the answer is yes.

Barbecue pork sandwiches and crispy sweet potato fries will join the menu on Allen Street tonight, if the debut of “The Whole Hog” goes as planned.

Right now the truck is on a bigger truck, headed for Buffalo, owner Kathleen Haggerty said early this morning. But she’s a seasoned professional with restaurant and catering experience, who has obtained her permits and prepped her food, so she expects to serve. A little rain isn’t going to change her mind.

Haggerty, a Buffalonian who has returned after selling her Buffalo-centric deli in Seattle, aims to use local pork, vegetables and bread in all her dishes.

The menu includes barbecue pork sandwiches at $7 and $5, regular and sweet potato fries at $5, $5.50 beans on greens – vegetarian for now – and more.

The truck will be parked at Holly Farms parking lot, 233 Allen St., from 8 p.m.-2 a.m., and Saturday at the Buffalo First Indiesound music festival, from 3 to 6 p.m., she said. She’s going to try to do one festival per weekend.

Her regular spot will be Tuesday through Friday,  10 a.m.-2 p.m., downtown in Fireman’s Park, across North Division Street from the bus station.
