The Tin pig
The Tin Pig is a relatively new endeavor for Yvonne and Jack Tate who moved here from Tucson, Arizona in 2016 to open Immersion Brewing. Yvonne with 22 years in the restaurant business and Jack with 27, they decided to go out on our own and open The Tin Pig food cart in April 2018.
With both families from the south, Yvonne's from Alabama and Jack’s from Tennessee, they found their new home in Bend, was lacking in some southern down-home favorites. They pay respects to their individual homes by adding flavors from Tucson sprinkled in with a little Virginia for Yvonne. Their goal as a food cart is to give Bend some of thier favorite things to eat from their families. Growing up eating southern food, they feel a special connection to that cuisine but we also like to put their own twist on other dishes as well.
Both Yvonne and Jack feel very lucky to be at the Podski Lot. It’s a fun atmosphere with a lot going on, surrounded by awesome neighbors who serve amazing food! With the area growing the way that it is, it’s becoming one of the most happening places in Bend!
