In another era, the area of Pecos Street near the railroad tracks known as “Tank Town” served a purely utilitarian purpose. The tall metal tanks on the property were used by grain brokers who stored grain and sold it when the price was right.

Pecos purchased by Amanda West and Ian Stowe in 2019 will take a step toward becoming an open-air community gathering place with the opening of pop-up food trailer Ocaso, Tank Town’s first commercial food establishment.
Lockhart’s newest pop-up eatery will feature Argentine-inspired cuisine by chef Mike Torres, who is perhaps best known locally as the owner of the Gold Epicure, a downtown eatery that once famously made its home in a 1957 Chevrolet truck.
