There’s just something about a meal prepared inside of a truck. Maybe it’s the efficiency of the experience, the perceived affordability, or just the sheer fun of strolling up to a colorful Mystery Machine clone and walking away with a handful of fish tacos. Whatever the reason, the love for food trucks and changing food service laws have led to an explosion in popularity all across the US.
Today, food truck festivals are worthy of a Google calendar alert, and the divine appearance of an ice cream sandwich truck in July will result in a line two blocks long. Gone are the days of food trucks as a novelty or solely a late-night drunk food option. These are the US cities with a food truck scene as delicious as it is unexpected.
