Backyard Bird is a favorite among Fort Collins food truck fans, delighting lovers of chicken and donuts for years now.

Officially in 2020, you won't have to chase around chef Matt Smith's food truck anymore, as Backyard Bird sets down roots in Timnath for their first brick and mortar location.

Backyard Bird's new restaurant will be located at 4650 Signal Tree Dr. in early 2020, meaning you can ditch the Popeyes/Chik-Fil-A feud and get a delicious local chicken sandwich fried up by a chef who's been featured on the Food Network.

You might know Matt Smith from his previous NoCo endeavors like Locality and Door 222, but his food truck has been a quick favorite among locals, especially in the beer scene as he's traveled to several breweries in the area, sharing his recipes.

We can't wait to sit down and order a chicken sandwich from a pro, and we don't have too long to wait.
