The Eat With Me food truck in front of the Old Station Brewery Co. is serving up some food in a trial run over the summer.

The food truck opened June 20 and Dan Kucera, and his partner, Darcy Azure, said they encourage the community come down and enjoy the food.

The food truck will be open Tuesday through Saturday at 5 p.m. through the summer, and will eventually be replaced by the Old Station Brewery kitchen, Kucera said. He added that it's great opportunity for the owners of the Brewery so they can see what kid of food they want to serve.

Azure said that he might consider running the food truck again next summer.

Kucera said he worked with Azure in the kitchen at Murphy's Pub for five years.

"He enjoys the creative part of cooking, instead of just cooking," Kucera said.

"Up at Murphy's we always talked about a food truck," Kucera said, "and there is a few of us up there that we always thought it would be fun."

He added that Azure was the only person that he was really thinking about for the position and that "this is his chance, so I got to get (this) going."

Kucera said that the food truck allows them to experiment on things, such as the Andewy sausage bowl with mango cilantro salsa last week.

"I didn't even have any plans on it until I made the salsa, then I was tasting it and was like 'wow that's good,'" he said.

"You run with it," he added.

He said they will be coming up with two or three new things a week for the community to try, and hear customer feedback on what dishes they liked.

This week the truck will be serving a hangover burger, curry chicken bowl, Carolina style pulled pork sandwich with homemade coleslaw and the option of sauce on the side or on the burger.

Kucera said that their food comes from a variety of places, including some from local markets such as Bear Paw Meats, the farmers market and local garden clubs. He added that freshness makes a difference.

He said they have a large variety of possibilities of things they can serve. Azure's creativity is an asset, he added.

"The one thing that makes Darcy different (from other cooks) is that he's partially crazy," Kucera said. "He's willing to try anything. He enjoys the research part of it and that's it."

Azure said that he wants to make the customer happy and have them try his food, adding that he wants to "let the food speak for itself.".

"Ideas will get stuck in my head. I'll be shopping and I'd see something or I'll find something to work with it - like 'aw man that's awesome, I can do something with that,'" Azure said.

Kucera said that the owners of the brewery are great to work with and that business is already starting to pick up.

Azure said that he people who are at other bars have been Facebook messaging him, placing orders that they then pick up.

He said he is happy for the business.

Kucera agreed.

"I want people to eat with me," he said.
