A friendly neighbor sent this picture of the pieces of the mural being installed on Wednesday.
South Philly Barbacoa was previously located at 8th and Watkins with a food cart. At the end of June, the cart closed to prepare for this bigger move to Vegan Commissary’s former storefront.
Prior to opening their cart in 2014, South Philly Barbacoa was proposed to open in Zagar’s mural warehouse. Since they never opened up shop there, it’s only fitting that they get the proper Zagar treatment on this new spot.
Benjamin Miller, co-owner of South Philly Barbacoa, told us that since they’re renting the space, the pieces of the mural are being bolted on.
