Local Eating – Munchie Mondays with LiveBuchanan

Review of the First Munchie Monday with LiveBuchanan

by Thomas Hoyt, Writer, and Rebecka Hoyt, Editor & Photographer

“Mmmm, Munchie Mondays!” said my husband Tom as we went down to Days Avenue’s new Food Truck Alley. We were (and still are) excited for this to be happening here in Buchanan as it can give us all some more food options on a day when other restaurants are closed or have different operating hours.

The food trucks that were there around dinner time included Don Chepe’s, The Munchie Man, Arepas, Michiana Concessions (the hotdog stand), and more! Some trucks closed up a little early, probably due to selling out of their food. We got lucky for hotdogs, as they only had one bag of buns left and we were there just after 6:30pm. Do food trucks take debit/credit cards? Some may and some may not, so you might want to have some cash on hand. There are ATM’s at United Federal Credit Union and Honor Credit Union here in town that are close enough to drive or even walk to if you need cash.

Planning your time to come here is a good idea. You may not know if the vendor will run out of their food or how long a line will be. If it’s a good weather day, then there will be lines. If you’re in town during the day, stop by for lunch starting at 11:30am. If you want some music to go along while you sit in the dining area of the lawn, come for dinner till 7:00pm! You could also enjoy your food in the grass at the Common or the tables that line the side of Buchanan District Library. However, you can bring your food home if you want.

Every Monday, there may be different vendors at different times. You can check out the LiveBuchanan Facebook page for more information on Munchie Mondays. If you attended this past Monday, let us know in the comments of the article on our Facebook page and tell us what you liked!
