baba's porch

Dan & Caroline Kraus of That Food Truck would like to present Baba’s Porch for an unofficial public release. The last 4 years with Big Red had been tumultous at best and she (the big red food truck) decided she had been through her last service and refused to start up again. In her death was the birth of a new concept and new beginnings for the family business. Baba’s Porch is a direct extension of Baba’s with familiar foods executed with deep love and appreciation. An edible thank you to all that have supported the Kraus’s many projects in addition to all of their new friends! They ask you to join them on this evening full of great food, outstanding beers, beautiful lighting and humble hearts.
