Now Open: And Also With ‘Cue, a BBQ food truck with a give-back mission
A new BBQ food truck that officially opened Monday has a bigger purpose than just good food.
When you get a food truck meal at Also With ‘Cue, they feed BBQ sandwiches to people experiencing food insecurity.
And Also With ‘Cue is set up 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday in Downtown Raleigh at the corner of Edenton & McDowell streets in the parking lot of First Baptist Church Raleigh (pro tip: you can park there if you’re not walking).
Some of the menu items include a pulled pork sandwich, ribs, wings, pimento cheese sandwiches and aged cheddar biscuits, plus southern sides like BBQ beans, Mac n’ cheese and slaw.
How it works: For every plate purchased, a meal goes to someone in need, working with First Baptist’s clothing closet and community partners.
Glenwood South just got its new favorite dive bar. Johnson Street Yacht Club is a neighborhood bar from the folks behind Bittersweet and Raleigh Provisions, Offline says. Look for patron-centric programming, including a Bachelor-watching night, and try a Bloody Mary on Sunday.
