Timothy Stevens e-mailed us today with an update on his up-and-coming Tiki Tim’s Grill:
This giant aluminum Twinkie is the whole enchilada!
The “giant aluminum Twinkie” Stevens is referring to is the 1970s Airstream trailer he converted into Tiki Tim’s Grill. It is expected to open as early as this weekend at the Hut (305 N. Fourth Ave.).
Stevens says a couple of signatures from the Pima County Health Department are all he needs to get things started. He expects to hold a soft opening this weekend and says he’ll spend the rest of the month “working out any kinks where needed.”
Tiki Tim’s Grill will serve foods inspired by surf and island culture. Think burgers topped with pineapple, purple Peruvian potato salad and grilled pizzas, to name a few.
Stevens says a grand opening featuring live music and exotic flavors—including “the essential Kahlua pig”—is expected to take place in early September.
