Love Food Trucks? Who doesn’t? It seems like the entire food truck industry has boomed in the last 10-15 years, at least here in North Carolina. And for good reason. Food truck festivals are perfect for when you want to try multiple things- or perhaps your group just can’t agree on the same type of food. That’s why Food & Wine set out to determine the cities with the best food trucks across the country. And since trying food trucks in every city is a bit of a challenge, they decided to ask the people who know best- their readers! Food & Wine readers voted ten cities the “cream of the crop” as part of the publication’s Global Tastemakers awards. And one North Carolina city made the shortlist.
Food trucks are a great way for aspiring chefs and restaurant owners to test the waters without the high overhead of opening a full restaurant. Plus they have the ability to go where the people are ie festivals, concerts, breweries, etc. And then of course there is the novelty and appeal of food trucks for a lot of consumers. I have to admit though, with prices typically comparable to a sit-down restaurant, I’ll take that option most every time. But I’m in the minority I know! So which North Carolina city did Food & Wine readers say has the best food trucks? It’s one of my favorites!
