FLINT, MI — The journey toward opening J&B’s Chuckwagon started in Thelisa Anthony’s kitchen. Her sister, Teresa Anthony, would hold fish fries at their Flint home.
Eventually, they tried serving tacos. Friends and family enjoyed the food so much they encouraged Teresa Anthony to make a business out of her cooking.
Her cousin Billy Anthony is the CEO of the truck, she said. He wanted to help with the business.
One day in 2019, he drove her to check out the former JJ’s BBQ food truck, which was on sale, Anthony said. He agreed to buy it if she, her sister and family would run it. Since then, the truck has gained a following from locals.
J&B’s Chuckwagon, located at 4301 Saginaw St. at the corner of Saginaw Street and East Stewart Ave., is open noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Hours may change as it gets darker earlier.
