Editor’s Note: Sadly, Truck has closed as of July 31st, 2015.
The northeast corner of the Mission is something of a dead zone. It’s basically Best Buy, the place where MUNI buses go to sleep and Truck. That relative lack of NIMBY neighbors is probably what allows Truck to do what it does, which is, more or less, get rowdy. Rumors about this place abound, and some are true; yes, it does get steamy at times; and yes, there are onion rings. In fact, the kitchen is what keeps patrons upright, as the drinks are strong and happy hour deals unbeatable. A barebones smoking area facing 14th Street allows for prime people watching, and the interior is decked out in chrome and trucker mud flaps for maximum butch vibe.
