8 Food trucks we can't wait to try this summer
In the past several years, we've seen a marked increase in mobile dining. Food trucks are rolling out creative, inspired eats all across North America, and we couldn't be happier.
Come with us as we check out some of the most tantalizing and tasty-sounding food trucks we wish would park in our driveway every lunch hour.
Take a ride on the Taco Bus for some authentic, fresh and fast Mexican street food in Tampa, Florida. From tacos and burritos, to tortas (Mexican sandwiches) and tostadas, with one bite you'll think you hopped a plane and landed south of the border. While they also have a sit-down restaurant, we'll be hoping the mobile version pulls up somewhere near us this summer. Bonus: Taco Bus has a wide array of vegan and vegetarian offerings.
Fries & Dolls
This tasty truck in Calgary, Alberta (dubbed a "mobile snacking experience"), offers up everyone's favorite — French fries. But not just any French fries. The dolls in question know their product and serve fresh cut fries in some seriously creative ways. We dare you to resist the "Farrah," perfectly crispy potatoes topped with a savory blend of garlic, parsley and grated Parmesan cheese. Yum.
Brunch Box in Portland, Oregon, is a burger-lovers dream. But don't expect your run-of-the-mill patties with a few fixings. Nope, this cart offers behemoth-sized sandwiches you'll need to bring your appetite for. Take the "OMG" for instance, a patty with American cheese, bacon, ham, Spam (yes, Spam), an egg and some standard burger toppings to finish it off. Talk about super-size, but also super-tasty.
Feel like you've gone around the world and back with the globally influenced cuisine from this Arlington, Virginia, food truck featuring tasty treats from all around the globe. From fish tacos and pork banh mi to beef shawarma and butter chicken, you'll never get bored following this food truck around.
Hot, delicious pizza baked in a truck? Sign us up! DC Slices bakes crispy thin crust pies while on the move in Washington, D.C., including plain cheese, pepperoni, Italian sausage and onion, veggie (green peppers, onion, mushrooms, black olives), Hawaiian and Buffalo chicken.
The truck alone (shaped like a giant silver pig) is reason enough to check out this mobile sandwich shop in Seattle, Washington, but why not stay for the flavorful food? Pulled pork, grilled chicken, vegetable and pork and posole sandwiches make up the bulk of the menu, but don't skip the tangy slaw or creamy macaroni and cheese.
Spencer on the Go!
Food trucks often serve up simple fare like burgers, hot dogs and tacos, but this one (self-described as San Francisco's only mobile bistro), is serving up French cuisine. Enjoy cauliflower bisque, escargot, braised lamb, fois gras and sauteed shrimp all from a roving gourmet food cart.
Bacon Mania Truck
Who doesn't love bacon? Everyone's favorite smoky pork product gets the gourmet food truck treatment in Anaheim, California, and we can't wait for a taste. From the classic BLT to macaroni and bacon to brownies wrapped in bacon, there's no food the bacon lovers behind this unique food truck are afraid to add bacon too.
