Three world-class food trucks will drive to Ponca City Sept. 12-13 to set up their mobile cafes at the Ponca City Arts Festival. Keeping with the theme of “art around the world” the festival committee worked hard to find exotic tastes that bring world tastes to Ponca City, promising this is “not your typical fair food.”
Making the announcement is Kelsey Wagner, Ponca City Art Center executive director.
On the menu this year is a truck called Masa, a popular food truck based out of Tulsa. Masa labels its cuisine simply as “South American Fusion” and strives to bring a Latin food infusion to the Oklahoma street food scene. This truck promises the best empanadas, arepas, bacon bombs and more. Masa is owned by Robert Carnoske and Chad Wilcox.
The first thing people will notice about Stella Reaux is that this truck is completely covered in chalkboard paint, giving it a hipster look and feel. Stella Reaux labels its food as “Cajun Southern Fusion” and specializes in simple yet intense Cajun and southern style cooking. They also offer a unique take on food such as “walking nachos” and chimichurri fries. Their menu usually includes jambalaya, Cajun hash, banana Foster bread pudding and fried pies.
The third food truck scheduled to serve at the Ponca City Arts Festival was voted “Best Food Truck in Tulsa” by Tulsa’s People Magazine in 2014. Mike’s BBQ, a truck out of south Tulsa, is proclaimed by many of his customers as the best ‘Q’ in Tulsa. “The ribs are smoked to perfection, his brisket juicy and tender, and the pork butt is genuinely pulled and doesn’t disappoint. The yummy goodness doesn’t stop there – he’s got all the traditional sides: potato salad, made from scratch baked beans and coleslaw that’s the perfect mix of sweet and crunchy. The serving sizes are ample and won’t leave you feeling hungry either,” Wagner shared.
The Ponca City Arts Festival is held on the ground of the Ponca City Art Center on Saturday, Sept. 12, and Sunday, Sept. 13. Stella Reaux and Mike’s BBQ are scheduled to serve both Saturday and Sunday, and MASA will be serving Sunday only.
