      Food trucks marking permanent spots in Birmingham

      Food trucks are in the business of being mobile, but some are choosing to permanently mark their spots in Birmingham.

      Rayford Cook, the owner of Off the Hook Food Truck and Catering, opened Hooked on 3rd Avenue North Monday.

      "I just wanted to be in Downtown Birmingham with the excitement," said Cook.

      His restaurant, which serves lunch and has plans for dinner in the near future, serves up fish tacos, sushi and more.

      MELT Food Truck also has plans to anchor a location. Construction at a spot in Avondale down the street from the brewery already began. The restaurant is scheduled to open in May.

      Both Hooked and MELT will keep their food trucks rolling.
