The new PK’s Smoke House and Soul Food Kitchen restaurant grew out of the successful food truck started by Pat Sutton and her husband, Kelvin, about three years ago, she said.

“My husband ran the food truck, and I still worked [in insurance] full time and worked part time on the food truck,” Sutton said. “About a year ago, we decided to work the business full time together.”

That paid off, she said, as the food truck’s following convinced them to open a permanent restaurant July 28 at 909 W. Spring Creek Parkway, Ste. 460, Plano.

PK's menu includes smoked ribs, brisket, chicken and sausage as well as pulled pork, sandwiches, wings, fried fish and more. However, what has become most popular for the restaurant’s clientele is its “SoulFood Sunday” dinner line, Sutton said.

“People are definitely loving the ox tails, fried catfish [and] our barbecue, of course,” she said. “We sell a lot of ribs [and] a lot of brisket too.”

The restaurant is open Wednesdays through Sundays, and Sutton said PK’s plans to begin offering online ordering in mid-August. 469-601-5134.
