First Look: Court Louie food truck court in Tower Grove South

St. Louis’ first food truck court, Court Louie, officially opens for business at 4001 Utah St. in Tower Grove South on Monday, Jan. 22.

The court will be the semi-permanent home for four area trucks: Farmtruk, Go! Gyro! Go!, Steak Louie and Locoz Tacoz. As The Scoop reported in June 2017, Court Louie is the brainchild of Steak Louie truck owner Paul Listenberger.

Court Louie integrates the food truck and restaurant worlds into a single experience. Customers order indoors at the counter, which is divided into four stations – one for each truck. The food is made to order on the trucks, which are parked behind the building. Customers pick up their orders from the counter and grab one of 49 seats inside or another 25 on the patio.

Listenberger said at least two trucks will be onsite during lunch, and three or all four will normally park for dinner service. Other area trucks will make occasional guest appearances, too. The daily truck lineup will be available online and on each truck’s social media sites.

Fans of roving meals need not fear. All four trucks will continue to operate on the street and at special events. Court Louie will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Here’s a First Look at what’s in store at St. Louis’ first food truck court.

The Scoop: Food truck food court to open in South City

A new “food court” for area food trucks is in the works in South City.

Earlier this year, Steak Louie owner Paul Listenberger bought the 2,200-square-foot building at 4001 Utah St., which formerly housed Annie Moons Bakery. The space has served as a commissary kitchen for Steak Louie, as well as fellow trucks Farmtruk and Go! Gyro! Go! Now, Listenberger plans to turn it into a one-stop shop where food truck fans can indulge in their favorite fare in one central location.

According to Listenberger, the actual rehab of the space will be minimal. “It’s a great building as-is,” he said. “We’re just doing basically cosmetic changes.”

Listenberger said the plan is for customers to order at a counter, and then food will be brought to their tables. Inside and outside seating will be available, and he plans to serve beer as well.

Steak Louie, Farmtruk and Go! Gyro! Go! have all signed on to participate in the venture, and Listenberger said he hopes to have Holy Crepe on board soon, as well. He also intends to eventually bring in other trucks for collaborations and events.

Initially, Listenberger said the food court would be open for Friday dinner service, and breakfast, lunch and dinner service on Saturday and Sunday. The space, which has no official name as of yet, is about four to six weeks from opening. “We want to get the patio open as soon as we can,” he said.
