What to Eat at the Meatyballs Popup Restaurant in Evanston

Poping up in Evanston this weekend.

With the Meatyballs Mobile still in the shop, Phillip Foss and family have been devising all manner of ways to get the meatyballs to the people. And this weekend the slightly profane restaurant will actually be setting up shop at a real restaurant. It’ll be taking over Sarki’s in Evanston. It is a cherished breakfast institution, which serves out huge portions of breakfast and lunch classics to long local lines. It’s usually closed for dinner, so for this Friday and Saturday Meatyballs will keep the joint open and serve a special menu. Considering the limitations of not being able to actually cook in the truck, this might actually be the most pure and delicious way to get your fill of Foss’s Meatyballs. Check out the full menu below.

As befitting the randy concept are a whole new host of borderline offensive dishes. Our favorite happens to the Thai’d Balls, which feature turkey, coconut milk, sweet chili, and lemongrass. Though the Crabby Balls aren’t far behind.
