Oklahoma’s first food truck park, The Bleu Garten in Oklahoma City’s Midtown District, was a luxurious experience. Why? The Bleu Garten provided room for several food trucks with clean restrooms, two bars, shaded seating, games, and big screen TVs in a repurposed and recycled environment style. I can also compare the feel of the place to local stores like Plenty and Verdiris (both of which are nearby and worth a visit).
The Bleu Garten will be a different experience each day with rotating trucks–like going to the same place but with a different menu each time. It’s best to visit their web site to see what’s available before hand as the max amount of trucks they park can hold is around six at this time.
When I spoke to Founder and Operations Manger, Hunter Wheat, during my visit I asked him about Blue Garten’s winter plans. He hopes with more expanded covering and heaters, the place will give food trucks a place to sell when they would normally close up for the season.
At the bar where, according to their white board, “babies are born, not served,” the Bleu Garten offered beer by the bottle or can, drafts, wines, and speciality cocktails. There were two bars with one for cocktails and another cash only bar for canned and bottled beers and non-alcoholic drinks. One doesn’t have to come here for the food.
The Bleu Garten is an experience that must be tried and is a place to keep a watch on.
