Bad to the Bone BBQ food truck back full time

May 15, 2019 GMT

Less than a month after we reported that the Bad to the Bone BBQ food truck owner had reopened the biz and was looking for a permanent spot, he’s found one.

Hector Cabello now is parking his truck at the corner of Nacogdoches Road and Loop 410, just inside the loop, at a former gas station turned food truck space. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Cabello, who used to the work the Smoke Shack food truck when it was parked in the lot.

Cabello, who signed a lease and started serving at the location Tuesday, originally shuttered Bad to the Bone back in September after a short stint on Cevallos Street in Southtown.
