LYNDLEY’S FOOD TRUCK
Lynn Marks own’s Lyndley’s food truck.
Lynn Marks told me as a young boy he would watch his mother and grandmother cook, for big groups of people. He remembers the accolades they would receive and the words of encouragement we all love to hear. His inspirations were like magicians of cuisine. He would hear; “how did you do this?” “What’s your secret?” “How did you get this to come out so good?” As a child, he remembers the encouraging words and how they made him feel. It felt good that others recognized when love and passion were put into the dishes that were made.
Like most of us, Lynn didn’t jump on his calling right away. He got a job as an inspector in the oil and gas industry. He worked for someone else to pay the bills and to feed his family, although he did still dabble in the culinary arts. He remembers fondly working at Bluebonnet Café in Old Town Spring in the 1980’s. An eatery that has been long gone and forgotten by most, except him and the memories and the food that he created there.
Lynn became more mature and his kids grew up. but his love for food, however, never abated.
A little over 2 years ago, Lynn spent his life savings on Lyndley’s, a beautiful BBQ truck. He designed it himself, with an enormous slow smoker on the back end and T.V’s on one side. He had a company in Georgia specially make it just for him. There are no other food trucks that are anything like it. Once completed, he drove to Georgia, paid cash and hooked it up to his truck and drove it back to the great state of Texas. Lynn had a dream of making great BBQ and he rode that dream all the way through.
He started doing catering and took his new truck to events, like Bareback. Eventually, he wound up as my friend and neighbor at Bernie’s. There was already a BBQ truck at Bernie’s, so Lynn had to come up with a back-up plan. He started serving Cajun food that was truly legit! I remember having the best Mountain Oysters of my life there. I wish he still served them!
After a few months, he left Bernie’s and reemerged at Cash County Line. I knew how good his food was and wanted to check how good his BBQ was. I ordered some to take home and I was hooked. Lynn is a master smoker, yet if you ask him he says he’s just an old man who likes to cook. Lynn Marks believes in his dream of serving great BBQ and his food is what dreams are made of. He can be found often at Deacon Baldy’s 5447 FM 1488. Follow him on Facebook for his schedule and delicious specials he’ll be featuring. Tell him Matt sent you!
