Smoke BBQ to Take Over Past Motorbar Space on King

From vegan to extra meaty.

When faux meat dive Motorbar shuttered just four months into its stint at 487 King St., no one was exactly shocked — the menu didn't sit well with critics, and it was serving a small niche market. Now it seems the address will be the opposite of a hipster vegan spot as Smoke food truck takes over the space to serve "elevated" barbecue.

We would like to thank EVERYONE for being a part of our dream these past 9 months! From day one, the support and love...

Talk about a turnaround. Smoke serves a menu of brisket, burgers, and hash from its mobile kitchen — a far cry from the tofu and non-dairy cheeses previously doled out at the former Motobar. Eater reached out to Smoke for more details, like the opening date and the fate of the motorcycle paraphernalia. Check back for updates as they come.
