A new food truck park called “Uncle Bob’s Roundup” is coming soon to 144 E Cypress Street & Lee Avenue, next to Cypress Flats, in downtown Lafayette.

See Cypress Flats:

Uncle Bob’s Roundup will offer 5 food truck spots (depending on size) and will have full hookups, power and water. Guests of the food truck park will have access to a large covered dining pavilion with seating, large air circulation fans and of course restrooms.

Food trucks are experiencing their biggest resurgence since the early 2010s. If this were 1994, that would be like the early 80s. Yes, just let that sink in. But back then, pioneers like Viva La Waffle operated them on the street and paved the way for what we see today. Today, Viva La Waffle is a more sophisticated concept with an actual brick-and-mortar location. But still, the legend of the food truck scene is in the air as the barrier to entry is lower for those wanting to get into the business. Now, in 2024, there are at least two dozen or more food trucks in and around the Lafayette area with about 3 food truck parks with more in the pipeline operating in conjunction with Food Truck Fridays in Moncus Park. There is also the Acadiana Beer Garden in downtown Lafayette, formerly Wurst Biergarten, which also hosts food trucks, so it’s safe to say the gig is back!

There is also a new restaurant called The Back Yard that just opened in Opelousas.

Tentative completion dates for Uncle Bob’s Roundup have not yet been set. However, it is not a huge undertaking and will most likely be completed by the end of the summer, just in time for the cooler, more pleasant months.

If you are a food truck owner and would like more information, look for details on how to participate closer to completion.
