Potato Potahto taking Gourmet Spuds to the Streets

The fleet of Dallas/Fort Worth Food Trucks & mobile concepts is hovering somewhere around sixty-ish, but Potato-Potahto is setting out to prove that you can still have an original idea despite the numbers. Proprietor Chic Henderson was reared in the restaurant industry and has always had big dreams of opening his own place. After being inspired by Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race, he turned his focus to opening DFW's only spud truck. Potato-Potahto is taking a cheeky approach to their menu; the "Potato" side consists of either a sweet or russet potato topped with all the traditional fixings while the "Potahto" is a fancier, gussied up version topped with rotating offerings. One month you may see a Buffalo Blue Cheese & Chicken potahto and the next could be a Chicken Fried Steak or Brisket and Pickled Onion option. They're also baking up Chic's mother's original recipe of Reba's Sweet Potato Pie for dessert. Potato-Potahto will be permitted in Dallas and Fort Worth with plans for public stops mixed in with private events. They've already got a few stops planned including the Dallas Arts District and we'll add them to our schedule when they launch in about a week!
