The five-stop, experimental food truck lot is about to be operational.

The long-awaited Zocalo Food Park (636 S. 6th St.) will be open for business July 13. The food truck conglomerate features five food trucks and a bar that will be serving up a wide array of food and drink for up to 300 people at a time.

Zocalo is a collaborative effort by Mazorca owner Jesus Gonzalez and developer Sean Phelan. In addition to four permanent trucks, Zocalo will also feature an incubator truck that allows young food entrepreneurs to test out their business models in a truck. Ruby’s Bagels acts as the park’s debut trial truck. 

Zocalo is planning to remain open from July 13 to the end of November, and will feature a bar that serves beer, ciders and rail drinks upon opening. A full-service tavern is set to open in two weeks. All of its vendors will be closed Mondays. 

Cuisines converge at this collective, that couples the convenience of food trucks with the community aspect of an eatery. In the mood for tacos? A gourmet burger? Ice cream? All of your bases are covered, and many of the staple sellers are brand new to the business.
