Billy Bob’s Boneyard Deep-Fried Potato Salad

By Todd VanSickle | May 30, 2020

Billy Bob’s Boneyard is one of the newest food trucks in Kalkaska. Their specialty: homemade pulled pork. Available on sliders, macaroni and cheese, fries, nachos, and more,  this succulent, sweet, and tangy pork is good enough to stand alone, but if you’re going to pair it with anything, do yourself a favor and pile it beside owner Lisa Dallas’ deep-fried potato salad balls made with a creamy, homemade horseradish sauce. Dallas created the unique dish on a whim, and it is a wonder.

“I just woke up one day and decided to try it. It has a different texture, with the creamy on the inside and the crunch on the outside,” Dallas said. “The homemade horseradish sauce gives it a little bite.”

If you can, save room for dessert — deep-fried ice cream and deep-fried Oreos, of course. Just make sure to bring cash; no credit or debit cards are accepted.

Find Billy Bob’s Boneyard in Kalkaska (search "Billy Bob's Boneyard" for location during construction), 11am–6pm Mondays thru Saturdays. (231) 499-8656.
