First Look: Blue Willy's Food Truck Opens Brick and Mortar Restaurant in Pompano Beach
With a family rooted into the Texas barbecue industry, Will Banks decided to make his way into the family business about six years ago with his highly lauded food truck, Blue Willy's Barbecue, parked just steps from the downtown Fort Lauderdale Courthouse.

Early on in the summer, Banks packed up his truck and made his way toward a new storefront just up the road in Pompano Beach. Now Blue Willy's Barbecue Market offers the same acclaimed barbecue in a traditional Texas-style counter-service -- and air-conditioned -- brick and mortar location.
Banks talks to Clean Plate Charlie about the new spot, Texas barbecue, and family roots in the meat-smoking industry.
