73. The Food Truck Depot, Delaware

There are certain buildings in town that you just have an affinity towards and the old freight depot at Central and Potter Street has been one for me.

When it came up for sale, we weren’t in a place to buy it. But, the group that did must have been in my head at some point. The result is The Food Truck Depot on the East side of Delaware, Ohio.

The concept is quite ingenious and based upon the attendance during a non-pandemic summer night, I’m not the only one that thinks so. The old freight depot has been renovated into a bar with great seating on a chilly night.

The Cousins Maine Lobster food truck visited in February.

However, outside of getting drinks, most people that visit the Depot do so for the exterior amenities. The most obvious being the food truck themselves – we recently featured Scratch Italian Fare and Cousins Maine Lobster food trucks on this series – as they continue to bring unique flavor concepts to the Delaware food scene. It is a great opportunity to experience flavors different from your normal taste pallet.

In addition to the food trucks, the location offers one of the few places to play sand volleyball in Delaware and leagues go all year round except when the snow postpones a few games. And it even has bands – The Blue Limestone Project will be playing Friday, March 19, from 7 – 10 p.m.

So take a few minutes and give The Food Truck depot a try at 59 Potter Street in Delaware, Ohio.
