Forks on the Road is the second food truck to be approved under Knoxville’s Food Truck Pilot program. The Forks food truck began operation in May 2014 and is a collaboration between businessman John Gabriel of Knoxville and Chef Noah Allen, who studied under Chef Deron Little CEC of Seasons Cafe. The planning for the truck was two years in the making and one year in construction. While not affiliated with Seasons Cafe, the Forks On The Road truck utilizes Seasons Cafe for its commissary needs. Chef Deron Little also provides culinary input in menu preparation.
Forks on the Road is a Sliders and Fries specialty truck that also provides a lunch time Blue Plate Special for area businesses. All sliders and fries are cooked to order and the fries are hand cut daily. A sampling of the sliders offered include the Route 66 burger which is the Chefs interpretation of an all American burger and is served with lettuce, tomato, onions, bacon and cheddar cheese. The Forks Team has also developed a slider to pay homage to our East Tennessee heritage with the Cooper Head slider—utilizing an Apple Pie Moonshine reduction to create a unique ketchup, this slider is topped with gouda cheese and caramelized onions.
In addition to lunch time service, the Forks food truck also provides curb-side dinner service in area communities. Billed as “mom’s night off,” the Forks team provides meal service to residents and has proven to be a great social event and gathering point.
The Forks on the Road food truck will be at Hops & Hollers on Tuesday 5/13 from 4pm to 10pm and on the corner of Main Street and Locust in front of the Bank of America building on Wednesday’s from 11am to 2pm.
