The KRAV Food Truck set up for business in the parking lot off Court Street, between the old County Court House and the Lorain County Justice Center, on Thursday.

The truck, based in Avon Lake, specializes in Mediterranean food made from scratch prepared by Chef Todd Berry.

Hours will be 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays. Menu items sold out during the truck’s first day in Elyria.

    That’s the way to stick it to Donna’s Diner .

    • Simon Jester

      Curse that free market!!

  • Scout

    Maybe Donna’s Diner should close on Thursdays…. pretty soon people will notice I’m sure. She should cry foul.

    • Sue

      I’m sure she will. It’s always someone else’s fault.

      • Scout

        That’s the culture now isn’t it????

    This is great for downtown. The comments about the diner are half the reason this change has taken so long. Despite the negativity, this DOES NOT HURT downtown restaurants… it helps them.
    Food trucks line up and down Lakewood, Ohio City, Tremont, and downtown Cleveland every year near some of the best restaurants in the area and the businesses feed off each other. Creating a great food culture requires diversity and quality, and the food trucks and restaurants tend to push each other to raise the bar, helping everyone.
    Support KRAV (and Fired Up, which also visits Elyria) and they’ll come back with others. This is a very promising and positive step for downtown.

      I seriously think a lot of the people who comment on this site must live a bleak, miserable life. Nothing positive to say.

    • bROWNS77

      When does Fired up come to Elyria? Heard they have awesome tacos!
      I wish they posted the menu for the KRAV truck. Sounds good.

  • Sis Delish

    Dine and Dash, anyone?

  • GreatRedeemer

    Most of the downtown workers order their food and pick it up at local places anyway. Its just a mobile version. Of course if there is not sufficient support for the product they just move on. If there is, then others also come. Not a bad thing,

    • Sis Delish

      Do they have Pothole Patching Vendors, too?

      • GreatRedeemer

        Yes, private contractors solve the problem.

        • Sis Delish

          When is the City going to “raise money” for this cause?

    • Sue

      Shhh GreatRedeemer, keep your positivity to yourself, this is Elyria – we must shoot down every good thing with something negative at every opportunity. x_x

    Hey Sis Delish, Golfin Girl and the rest of the bunch from the negativity network…..stop complaining and do something. What great observers you all are about the state of our city, county, etc… but yet you never ever say what you have done to fix anything. Sitting behind your computer complaining doesn’t seem to be helping the cause. In fact all you do is create a continual wave of negativity. Bottom line,if you don’t like it here, MOVE. The food truck is a step in the right direction. With enough momentum and community support (what a concept!!) maybe we’ll start to see other positive things happening around town.

    • Mark B

      What have you Done ?

      • Stan Hope

        Guaranteed more than you have!

        • Mark B

          Didn’t answer the question, and everyone knows that if you had done something , you would be thumping your chest with it .

    • SniperFire

      ‘ Sitting behind your computer complaining doesn’t seem to be helping the cause.’

      Sure it does. How many people have NO IDEA there is another side to the story versus what is being force fed to the public by the Leftist media?

      • Stan Hope

        And you are the the voice of reason to bring all that knowledge? What are your credentials for such a thing? It’s funny how the two biggest complainers are the quickest to respond.

        • SniperFire

          ‘And you are the the voice of reason to bring all that knowledge? ‘

          Of course. Do you enjoy being lied to by Democrats and the media, which are the same thing?

    • Sis Delish

      Stan Hope (& Change):

      Already Left and extremely happy about the move to a more vibrant, well-run and prosperous growing community.

      Looking back, the writing was on the wall when folks like yourself and a majority of sheeple elected The Dwarf Mayor, then, you repeated being Stupid by doing it twice. Now, you have Snow White running the place and the prospects for Dopey to succeed her and high.

      Listen to Sniper, the Democrats didn’t need a Truck to feed their B.S. To the sheeple.

      Now, tell Me what is so incredibly Positive about your City and County that you and your pals are comfortable with?

      • Mark B

        He is probably just one of the many Union workers sucking the city dry and he gets upset when people bring attention to the gravy train.

    • golfingirl

      I don’t remember commenting on the food truck. But since you brought me into this conversation I now will.

      I have no problem with the idea, but when it is the finest food in town, that is a problem.

      Do they also serve “Democrat Kool-Aid” from the truck?

      You like meals on wheels, while I prefer a nice, quiet dining experience. To each their own I suppose.

      • Mark B

        Oh and look the truck is based out of Avon Lake , imagine that , the City of Elyria cant even bring that type of business to the city.

    Sis Delish and golfinggirl aka dumb and dumber

    • golfingirl

      I see Bro Delish has changed his name.

      Must have attended the Ron Jeremy lecture in Oberlin and left as a devoted follower. So inspired, he took his name, as his own.

      I believe it was Sigmund Freud who educated us about men/women like him/her. I believe they suffer from envy of a particular male body appendage.

      Hmmmm…..an interesting patient Dr. Freud.

      A male who takes the name of a female nun, converts it to the male gender and then assumes it. Then changes to another name, this time, that of a male who makes a living out of treating women like dirt. He then refers to females, who are clearly more intelligent than he, as dumb and dumber.

      Do you think we can save him Dr. Freud? This man obviously holds a hatred against women, especially feeling threatened by those of superior intelligence to him. It must have been raised by a dominant female, who preferred his female siblings.

      We must begin in-depth psychoanalysis immediately. It may be too late, but there may still be hope for this creature.

  • Melissa Merrill Snyder

    I think this is a fun and fresh idea for Elyria! hope to see the idea grow.

  • Ron Jeremy

    golfing girl are you mad because i called you dumber. Im sorry. Welcome to the golfing girl and sis delish show. aka dumb and dumber

  • Ron Jeremy
