Truck Yard is a dive-ish bar garden with a huge backyard, live music and food trucks where everyone’s invited (and their furry buddies, too.) With lots of heavily shaded outdoor space, food trucks on rotation, a kitchen slinging the best cheesesteaks in town, signature drinks, and multiple bars where you’d least expect it (think tree house, ferris wheel, etc), there’s no place quite like Truck Yard.

We’re looking for restaurant professionals that can handle a fast-paced, high-volume service environment while making every customer feel relaxed and welcome. If that sounds like you, see the job requirements below and apply online now.
