Grab & Go Meats, Eats & Treats

There's nothing like a beautiful summer night, good food and good company. At the Beast & Bird Food Truck, you're always met with a smile, good music and great fellow foodies! We feature fan favorite staples like pulled pork, sliced brisket, coleslaw, cornbread and our to-die-for mac & cheese, along with various custom pop-up menu items throughout the season. 

Our home base, where we serve weekly, is in Vinton, Iowa, but we travel frequently to neighboring towns and cities.  We love providing food truck service for local events!
