In the latest food truck news: Short Leash is moving into a brick-and-mortar location (and keeping its truck), you can buy the former Epic Hot Dogs mobile kitchen on eBay, and now, Mike's Kitchen & BBQ is pulling into the parking lot -- permanently.

The food truck got rolling in the spring of 2011, traveling to spots like the Surprise farmers market and cities such as Peoria, Glendale, Phoenix, and Mesa to sell barbecue-centric dishes such as pork and brisket hash and eggs, pulled pork, and barbecue sandwiches.

A farewell post on the company's Facebook page had this to say:

"I have to say sorry for the delay in this post, but I have decided to close up the pit and move on. My hope is that y'all enjoyed the Q and that I may have inspired some of you to get out and throw some meat on the grill.

Mike"

Having kicked the culinary tires of food trucks a few times, here's what tends to go through my mind during the experience:

 "Hmmm, let's see. The pulled pork? Enough already. Pass. Guess I'll have the other thing. Where am I going to eat this? Okay, folding chairs and tables over there. Oh, God; dirty napkins and plates everywhere. Screw that. And how long have all those condiments been sitting out in the sun? I should just get out of line. Do I really want this chicken thing? $8.75. For an extra buck, I could eat this sitting inside somewhere watching Sportscenter. Okay, I'm next. Maybe just the pulled pork. Sigh.
