Warm weather got you feeling a little antsy? Why not take it outdoors for lunch this week or next, at one of the Bangor area’s many food trucks, all of which are opening in the next two to three weeks — if they aren’t open already.
After a successful inaugural season on the Bangor Waterfront, Melt owners Alexis Walls and Amanda Smith will return to the Waterfront beginning May 4, offering up grilled cheeses, patty melts, Philly cheesesteak fries, mini chimichangas and amaze balls — fried mashed potato balls with bacon, scallions and cheese. Hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., and during concerts.
Celebrating its sixth year on the Bangor Waterfront, Pompeii Pizza will start firing up the mobile wood-fired pizza oven on Monday, May 7. Owners Steve and Dawn Carey and crew will be slinging crispy gourmet pizza all summer and early fall, with initial hours set for 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. They plan to expand their hours later in the summer, including during concerts on the Waterfront.
The official opening date remains a bit squishy, but owner Gabriel Muro Solis expects Casa Mexicana, his taco truck, to open on the Bangor Waterfront during the week of May 7. Solis offers up an array of fillings — from chicken tinga to barbacoa beef — served on authentic homemade tortillas, with an array of salsas and hot sauces on the side. Hours vary, but it is reliably open for lunch from Tuesdays through Saturdays, as well as during concerts.
