Drive-thru breakfast truck opens in prime Hillsboro location

A new food truck from the owners of Grange and Grub, a farm located on Purcellville Road near Hillsboro, has launched a drive-thru-style breakfast spot along on Rt. 9 in Hillsboro.

Miles and Justine Cowan, who last year moved to Purcellville from southern California, bought the former Chicama Run Farm in an effort to provide fresh, farm-to-table food for their family and for the community.

Justine Cowan is an accomplished chef who had “built a following” working in markets and restaurants, and she owned a catering business before moving to Loudoun.

A couple of years ago, the Cowans began looking for a farm to launch their business concept, and when they found Chicama Run farm, it was love at first sight.

“We are adventurous people, and we are very happy with our decision to move here,” Justine said.

Grange and Grub's breakfast menu includes beef and sausage breakfast tacos, breakfast bowls with eggs, meat and cheese, homemade flour tortillas, and torta with chorizo, black beans, egg and avocado. All of the items are made using fresh products directly from the farm.

The food truck is set up along Rt. 9 by the “Welcome to Hillsboro” sign in an area where cars can pull in and place and receive orders without leaving the car.

“We are able to serve high quality food with a quick turnaround,” Justine said.

Hillsboro Mayor Roger Vance said Grange and Grub has a “great menu,” and it is located in a “great site” to handle morning commuters.

“We are very enthusiastic about it,” Vance said.

Grange and Grub's farm market on Purcellville Road is also open on the weekends, selling their dry aged beef, pork, chicken, lamb, pork rinds, milk and eggs.

The food truck is open Monday through Friday from 5-9 a.m. For more information, visit http://www.grangeandgrub.com.

I drive Rt 9 West every weekday morning and watch the long line of cars crawl down 9 East, this food truck isn’t the slightest hindrance to traffic and I imagine a welcome surprise to commuters craving a quality breakfast. Perfect location! I hope they do well!

First let me say I have problem with food trucks or anyone expanding their business. However Rt 9 in Hillsboro is a nightmare and now we are allowing a drive thru truck? Seriously? I love small local business but something is amiss with this logic or perhaps it’s a place for people to hang while waiting for a accident to clear?
