The Little Black Food Truck's mobile eatery stays parked on Paxton Street, beckoning patrons and freeloading noses with the scent of barbecue wafting from the nominal trailer that recently gained notice from the Patriot-News. Carolina-style pulled-pork barbecue is hickory smoked for 14 hours, then mixed with a slightly hot, vinegar-based mélange and bookended by a bun. Half-pound Angus-beef burgers come crowned with customizable toppings; diners can align the timeless pairing of ketchup and mustard or introduce pickles to pickled jalapeños. Mobile cooks slice up french fries before dipping them twice in peanut oil and tossing the pile of hot, salty morsels beside each sandwich. The black trailer is emblazoned with the magenta silhouette of a high-heeled waitress, who occasionally springs to life to snag a fry from waiting baskets.
Official BBQ & Burgers
Since opening in 2012, Official BBQ & Burgers has satisfied Harrisburg's loyal following addicted to slow-roasted Carolina-style barbecue and homemade sides. The celebrated, yet simple 35-seat restaurant on Lyters Lane serves up a small menu, which includes half-pound Black Label Burgers with brisket-sirloin patties and choice of toppings, sandwiches stuffed with tender beef brisket slow-smoked for 16 hours, and sides of fresh-cut fries cooked in peanut oil. Famished diners can also take on 1/2- or full-racks of baby back ribs slathered in house-made barbecue sauce.
