The Rail Yard, the East Village knockoff of the Texas Truck Yard in Dallas, will hold its grand opening from 4-9 p.m. tonight at 1212 E. Sixth St.

The venture by three Little Rock women, which opened softly to the Progressive Arkansas Women’s PAC on election night for its watch party, includes the brick-and-mortar home of food truck Count Porkula BBQ and food trucks in rotation.


Thursday’s official opening will feature music, games and food trucks Say Cheese (featuring gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches) and Pinches Tacos authentic Mexican food outside and barbecue and drinks inside.

Sisters-in-law Murry and Linda Newbern and their cousin Virginia Ann Young conceived The Rail Yard after they visited the popular Dallas food-truck-surrounded beer garden. Count Porkula will feature 10 beers on tap, including local craft brews from Lost Forty, Flyway, Rebel Kettle, Diamond Bear, Ozark and Core.


Hours will be 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
