Rip's Rib Shak a new bbq food truck

Rip’s Rib Shak is among the latest additions to the ever-growing food truck fleet in Wichita.

This one is owned by Steven Pittman, who has worked at several barbecue restaurants over the years, and his father-in-law, Kevin Smith. It’s been running since August and for now has a regular parking spot. Pittman opens the truck from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at  at Builder's Inc. in Parklane Shopping Center at Lincoln and Oliver.

Eventually, Pittman said, the truck might be open more often, move around and participate in food truck gatherings around town.

Pittman serves St. Louis-style spare ribs, pulled pork, hotlinks and more. One of his specialties is chicken legs cooked on a Himalayan salt block.
