‘Blessed and highly flavored’: Big Slice’s Place serves food for the soul

TEXARKANA, Texas — Marquis “Big Slice” Ewings never gave up on his dreams.

That determination lifted him out of homelessness and led to his opening Big Slice’s Place food truck.

The truck’s name comes from the nickname Ewings’ mother gave him when he was a boy — when he was always in the kitchen slicing up something.

“My mom went to culinary school; so did my brother. I came from a long line of culinary school graduates, and so it was just normal to follow in their footsteps. Cooking has been a big part of our family,” Ewings said.
