Can I bring my own food or drink?
No. We work really hard to provide a wide variety of food and drink options every day, so we ask that our customers eat and drink from our on-site vendors only. All outside food and drink must be thrown away upon entering the park.
Do you serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks?
Yes! Our on-site bar serves a carefully curated selection of craft beers, ciders, and non-alcoholic beverages. Our rotating menu is served in packaged cans which we recycle on site to be more sustainable! Keep an eye on our Facebook & Instagram accounts for drink specials and guest features from your favorite Knoxville breweries.
How can I find out which Food Trucks will be serving and when?
We partner with 30+ different food trucks, and typically host 3-5 trucks at a time. Wednesday & Thursday, we are open for dinner only. Friday & Saturday, we host a different group of trucks at lunch & dinner. Sunday, the trucks stay all day. Please refer to the calendar above for a full schedule of our food trucks and special events. We also do our best to update Facebook & Instagram with our food truck lineup & any last-minute changes.
Is food available all day?
On Friday & Saturday, the food trucks rotate between 3PM - 4PM, so there may not always be food available during that one hour. If any trucks sell out of food during lunch or dinner, we do our best to post updates on Facebook & Instagram. Our bar is always open every minute that the park is open!
Do you have a Happy Hour?
Yes! Every day of the week from 3-6pm all alcoholic beverages are $1 off.
Can I take food to go?
Absolutely. You are welcome to take food truck food and non-alcoholic drinks to go.
Do any of the food trucks have vegan, vegetarian or gluten free menu items?
Yes! Like restaurants, most of our trucks are able to accommodate a variety of dietary preferences & restrictions. In the “our trucks” section of our website, we have identified trucks that typically have these items on their menus. However, since food truck menus can change daily, we recommend reaching out to them individually regarding food allergies, or for more specific information about their menus.
Are you family friendly?
Absolutely! We are 100% family friendly and have a fun play area for the little ones.
What about pets?
Yes, we love them! Please just keep them on leash at all times.
Do you take reservations?
Nope. Seating is on a first come first serve basis, but we have tons of seating options so you should always be able to find a spot quicky!
Do you take credit cards?
Yes. Our bar and all of our food trucks accept both cash and credit cards.
How do I get to Central Filling Station?
Our favorite ways to get here are walking, biking, public transit, and ride-sharing. KAT bus lines #13 (Beaumont), #20 (Central Street), and #24 (Inskip/Fountain City) all stop right in front of the park! Bus lines #21 (Lincoln Park) and #22 (Broadway/Fountain City) have stops very close. Click here for more info.
I have to drive, where can I park?
Personal vehicles are not allowed inside of the food truck park. There is plenty of street parking just outside our gates, along Bearden, Irwin, Bernard, and Hazel streets. We also have a small number of designated spaces at 126 Bearden Place, adjacent to our north gate, but they fill up fast. Please do not park in any of our neighbors' designated parking spaces. If you choose to park in another business' lot after hours, you do so at your own risk!
What happens when it rains?
We usually stay open! We have a large covered seating area for exactly that purpose. If the weather is really bad, especially during the winter months, check our Facebook or Instagram pages to make sure that we have not decided to close for the safety of our staff and food truck partners.
