We're working on making the most of our time left with Brett before he deploys for a few months so when he came home from work earlier this week and asked if anyone was in the mood to hit the town in search of food we dropped what we were doing and went. I probably should've already been cooking but, you know.
We ended up a few blocks down the road at the new(ish) food truck corner. What used to be a gas station ages ago and then a parking lot overflow for the high school across from it was recently leased (borrowed?) and alloted as the new space to park your truck and sell your fare of choice. We hit it up on a Tuesday evening about an hour before regular closing time so only two of the six or more trucks were still serving customers. I went for the cajun food and Brett had fish tacos from the mexican food truck. The kids were too busy playing to be much interested in their dinner. Both trucks get two thumbs up.
The kids found a bucket full of sidewalk chalk and played swamp monster chase with the other kids that were there while we made a new friend over shrimp gumbo. Apparently the BBQ place is a popular truck because they had sold out early and were packing up for the night. Our favorite restaurant, Shuga's, also has a truck that is usually out there that we're excited to try and I love that there is a coffee truck and a smoothie truck for when we're just wanting something quick and easy. With it being a straight shot down the road from our house it's looking to be a new favorite spot!
If you're in the area or will be later this summer you can find out more about their hours of operation here. I love that all trucks involved are focusing on fresh and healthy food options within a reasonable price range and that most take cards. They're making it easy on us!
Do you have a favorite food truck in your town/city?
