An Emporium of Pulled Pork Arrives on the Scene

Troy Walter has been working to find his niche for several years now.  He's peddled sno-cones at the beach...delivered restaurant meals in a third party transaction for folks who like to have door to door service...and now he has landed in a space that he hopes will become his second home away from home.  He calls it The Flying Griddle, and he's anchoring the prime position at the top of the Orchards Mall Food Court in the space originally designed for hot pretzels.

Walter and his business partner Matt Schwadron are bringing what they contend is arguably Pulled Pork Perfection "like nobody else!"  The small walk-up restaurant invites you to sample the pulled pork "Afterburner" sandwich...Thai-style pulled pork and lots of other sandwich and taco variations.  

The Flying Griddle smokes its own pulled pork daily in a smoker-grill alongside the Dairy Queen located on the front lot of the Fairplain Plaza. You may very well have tried some of their smoked meat options there under a pop-up canopy last summer, and now they've landed indoors at the Mall.

Offerings on the menu currently include:
  • Pulled Pork Sandwiches
  • Thai-Style Pulled Pork Sandwiches
  • Pulled Pork Tacos
  • Greek Wraps
  • Grilled Chicken Gyro Wraps
  • Pulled Pork Wraps
  • Grilled Chicken Tacos
  • Sides including chips and warm cookies

They would already have fountain-style soft drinks in the house, but installers are very busy and promising arrival of that equipment shortly after the start of the New Year.

Walter tells me that his partnership with the crew at Dairy Queen also provides the opportunity for him to sell DQ Treats like Dilly Bars and Buster Bars in house at The Flying Griddle.

Both Troy & Matt continue to experiment with other culinary options and promise that the menu will grow as the new restaurant advances. You can expect to find The Flying Griddle matching the regular hours of the Orchards Mall, seven days a week.

Best of luck, guys...and keep us posted on your advancements.
