Try New Adventures Thursday : Food Truck

Tried something new last Thursday. Yep, I had food off of a truck.

An actual food truck.

Parked in a downtown parking lot.

With eight or so other food trucks.

It was an interesting experience to say the least. It’s August… in Atlanta… That means it’s HOT! So, I’m standing in a parking lot with hundreds (literally) of other people getting in line to eat my lunch off of a food truck.

I’ve had food off a food truck before at fairs and carnivals and the like. However, this was the first time I’ve eaten off a truck downtown, in the big city, like they do on TV.

I was excited to try food truck food because I’m a Food Network lover, and I’ve watched all the shows. I know the behind the scenes… what goes on up there in that truck.

My observations:

1. Food truck eating is not easy for short people. Seriously, you can’t see or hear as well into the truck when you’re 5’3″ as say someone who is 5’6″. That makes it a bit harder to communicate with the sales person.

2. Did I mention waiting in line for a food truck in August is HOT!

3. The food was fabulously good. I enjoyed mine. It was served fresh and hot and just plain yummy.

4. The variety of trucks out there is AMAZING! You can get so many different types of food! There was something for everyone.

Will I eat from a food truck again? Absolutely! I might even venture away from the safety of just a burger.

Have you ever eaten from a food truck? What did you get?

    • Alicia – I didn’t take a pic of the whole truck. Did I mention it was hot. And crowded. And when I thought of the whole take a picture thing so I could do a post and link up to your Thursday thing (and yes that’s really the way the process went) I already had my food and was doing a serious balancing. So, alas. I didn’t get a pic. But, there is a show on Food Network (if you get that channel) that is ALL about food trucks. It’s fun to watch.

  1. Food trucks {we call them food trailers} are BIG in Austin. I’d be shocked if it took you more than 5 minutes to find one while driving. In fact, one of the best places is Hey Cupcake, a cupcake trailer. Divine.

    I think they’re so popular here because you don’t have to pay rental tax on property, they can set up shop at specific times and back loads of money. In college there was this one food trailer that only served breakfast tacos. Hello freshman 15! Seriously, I had to force myself to walk a different way to class because those tacos were too good to pass up.

    • Trailers – of COURSE they’re trailers in Texas. Y’all always have to be different. Tee hee hee. Oh, I am SO thankful they weren’t around when I was in college. I would have gone broke!

  2. I haven’t eaten at a food truck before, but they are all over the place and I’d love to try. I loved your post about your experience. 🙂
