Local food trucks, taps, and a full bar.
And a heated patio.
T&T is based out of an old Sonic building on 108th & Q Street. The indoor area is used as a kitchen for 3 resident food trucks to cook out of, and also houses a full bar. The food trucks are parked around the perimeter of the building outside, so guests can order food from any of the trucks, grab a drink from the bar window, and eat on the patio (or take food to go!) In addition to our resident food trucks, we have rotating guest trucks.

Big Green Q
Location 5402 S 108th St, Omaha, NE 68137
Inspired by BBQ food coming off the Big Green Egg, Kevin & Gail began thinking about potentially opening a restaurant. After some debating, researching, and getting advice from friends & family, K&G decided to open a food truck first. A food truck allowed them to get up & running quicker, without being tied down to a brick & mortar location.
And then the hardest part began… what to name it?! Ideas started floating around their minds about bbq, the Big Green Egg, this need to be “Green” in an eco-friendly way, and eventually Big Green Q was born.

The best authentic Mexican food in south Omaha NEBRASKA
Location 4001 Ames Avenue, Chicago St, Omaha, NE 68104
Phone: +1 402-618-8274
When conversations about regional barbecue get started (and they can get heated), you hear a lot of talk about places like Kansas City, Memphis, Texas, and the Carolinas. These places have world-famous destination BBQ restaurants, and you can get some damn good food there. Every part of this great country has it’s own style of barbecue, and Nebraska is no exception.
At 402BBQ, we use locally sourced Chicken, Pork, Buffalo, and (of course!) USDA Prime Nebraska Beef. We slow-cook all of these prime meats over a Mulberry and Apple wood fire, just like Nebraska folks have been doing for generations. Add the locally farmed vegetables, wild-caught fresh and never farmed catfish, our one-of-a-kind “Big Red Sauce,” and fresh Rotella’s bread, and now you’re talkin’ Real Omaha Barbecue!

How to Find the Best Local Food Trucks
There are a number of local Facebook pages in Lincoln that have discussions about local food trucks and where to find them at any given time.
Talk with locals
Use word of mouth to your advantage. If you’re visiting, don’t just pick up brochures at the tourist bureau, ask the people who work there what their favorite food trucks are and why. Do the same at your hotel, gas stations and shops.
Search by city at Yelp for food truck reviews by locals in hundreds of locations. The site has discussion forums and a blog. Sign up for Yelp Mobile to have information delivered to your phone.
Cleanliness and Food Safety
When you arrive at the food truck be mindful of the cleanliness of the food truck and the hygiene of the cook/server. The cook/server still needs to wear gloves, hair net and follow local health department sanitary guidelines. Additionally, the food temperatures per local health department standards should be observed both in holding and once the food is served.
