New traditional American spot The Porchetta Shack debuts in North Park

Looking to chow down on some traditional American fare? A new spot has you covered. The newcomer to North Park, called The Porchetta Shack, is located at 2632 University Ave.

Try the porchetta sandwich with ahogada sauce, avocado and pickled vegetables, the fried cod sandwich with caper-peppercorn aioli, arugula and lemon or the Italian hot beef sandwich with jalapeño cheese sauce and crispy onion; and pair them with candied nuts, fries or tots. (View the full menu here.)

With a four-star rating out of 16 reviews on Yelp so far, the newcomer is getting solid feedback from clientele.

ScooterGirl X., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on March 22, wrote, "I just had a delicious porchetta tacos and a beer on the newly spruced up patio. In addition to their good beer choices, they also just received a liquor license."

Yelper Lisa C. added, "Excellent homemade style fare with the very best pork belly in the North Park Area that I have had. Their selection of draft beer is so good. They even have tater tots. Great."

Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: The Porchetta Shack is open from 4 p.m.–10 p.m. on Monday, 11 a.m.–9 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and 11 a.m.–10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. (It's closed on Tuesday.)
