Fans of very spicy hot chicken rejoice: Tumble 22 is bringing back its food truck, after closing down earlier this spring. The food truck will reopen at owner/chef Harold Marmulstein’s other restaurant Salty Sow in the Cherrywood neighborhood at 1917 Manor Road. It’s unclear when it will open, but it should be relatively soon, since the truck is currently hiring for line and fry cooks.

When the reborn Tumble 22 truck comes back, it will open only for lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for either five or six days a week. This makes sense since Salty Sow isn’t open during those hours.

Marmulstein opened the food truck in the downtown Austin area in 2017, aiming to pay Austin tribute to Nashville’s famous Prince’s Hot Chicken. It had been parked at West Sixth spot Star Bar before it closed earlier this April.

Marmulstein followed that with the restaurant version of Tumble 22, T22, in Crestview on Burnet Road in 2018. A staffer had previously told Eater that T22 is aiming to expand with several restaurants across Austin, including one somewhere in South Austin.
