Happy Weekend!

It’s pretty much the weekend right? Right. We know you don’t really do a lot of work on Fridays. But we won’t tell anyone. We also won’t tell your boss that you took a long lunch to come up to Concord for a free Roots taco lunch at Fifth Third Bank (871 Church St North). Buuut if you can’t sneak away, we’ll be inside the Duke building on the 4th floor serving lunch. Aaaand if you’re not a Duke building employee, then you can get your Roots fix tonight at Sycamore Brewing in South End!

Here’s what’s cookin’ for lunch in the Duke building today…

Duke Building Menu

Korean Pork Wrap $8

Braised pork with Korean BBQ sauce and jalapeno, apple slaw

Chicken Philly $8

Marinated and grilled chicken with sautéed peppers and onions topped with creamy queso and chopped herbs, served on a hoagie

Veggie & Quinoa Salad $7

Roasted zucchini, squash, onions, quinoa, served over greens with sweet and spicy glaze and fresh herbs


Pasta salad with bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and a sweet oregano dressing $2

Kale, Apple and Bacon Salad $6 lg. $3 sm.

Rawl Farm local kale with golden delicious apples and chopped bacon and a herbed vinaigrette

What the peep?

So some of you have probably heard about Peeps milk. If you’re a curious George type, you’ve tried it. It seems that you either love peeps or you don’t. I’m not a fan, but that doesn’t keep me from thinking up crazy ways we could incorporate this marshmallow milk phenomenon into our menu. I’m thinking a chocolate marshmallow milk infused pancake in the shape of a bunny topped with pastel tie-dye colored marshmallow creme. That’s festive right? I don’t think the chefs will go for it.

In other non-peep-related news…both trucks will be venturing out today! Uptown (across from Duke building) and Innovation Park (7201 Hewitt Associates Dr). Don’t let this gloomy weather stop you from grabbing some Trout Po Boy Sliders or Chicken Enchiladas from Roots! They’ll turn that frown upside down.

Almost forgot! Tomorrow we will be at 2 locations for lunch. One will be a new Friday spot at 2201 Water Ridge Parkway. The other is a one-time event at Providence Baptist Church. So we hope you’ll put Roots on your lunch calendar for tomorrow. Lunch calendar ha. Does anyone have one of those?
