Everybody is buzzing about Dallas Food Trucks. Many of the food trucks make the same rounds each week but their schedules vary. It’s hard to decide which one to try when there are so many in the Dallas Fort Worth area, so we have compiled a list for you.
Here’s the breakdown of the Dallas / Forth Worth Food Trucks and what that they offer:
Gandolfo’s: The menu at the deli includes an extensive list of breakfast sandwiches and bagels, with specialty cream cheeses, for the early-morning crowd. Sandwiches are made on fresh bread that is baked on site each morning and include turkey, chicken breast, ham, roast beef, pastrami, corned beef as well as vegetarian options and Nathan’s brand hot dogs. Find them on Facebook.
American / Cajun:
Rockn’ Rick’s: Between burgers, gumbo, and po boys this food truck is full of good old Cajun flavor. They also serve a fresh salad so you can squeeze your veggies in too.
Jack’s Chowhound: The menu is heavy on hearty, hangover-curing items (pepperoni, marinara sauce, and cheese fried in an egg roll wrap; pulled pork and Gouda grilled cheese with barbecue sauce; steak sammies with aged cheddar and horseradish mayo), but there is a portobello burger with Swiss, spicy mayo, grilled onions, and sprouts. Prices are light at just $5 to $9, including hand-cut fries or Kettle chips. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Gennarino’s: An authentic Neapolitan-style Friggitoria run by three brothers from Naples, Italy. Come and enjoy all of the great Italian flavors that you love in ways that you’ve never seen them. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Petro’s: With their own blend of ingredients, Petros has created a new twist on the Frito Pie. Also serving great Baked Potatoes, Hot Dogs, Nachos, Creamy Shakes and Hint of Orange Tea. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Cousins Maine Lobster: Specializing in authentic Maine Seafood this food truck will not disappoint. From lobster tail to lobster quesadillas this truck delivers some incredibly fresh fish.
Flatlanders Taco Company: This mobile taco bar boasts of fresh ingredients to please anyone’s palate. Some of their Signature Tacos include crawfish, potato, chorizo, and avocado. You cannot go wrong with their Specialty Tortas! Talk about fresh food, they also make their desserts from scratch daily including their Mimi’s Pralines.
So Cal Tacos: After being frustrated with average fishTacos, the guys at So Cal go in their own kitchen and over the next 3 years developed their own authentic recipes for the Southern California Classic. They have been having issues getting their food permit for Dallas so for now, you can find them throughout Ft. Worth and the suburbs. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Chile Pepper Grill: Chef Noe Moya serves authentic Mexican cuisine by cooking with the freshest ingredients. This truck serves a variety of variations of huarache, tacos, and quesadillas.
Canne Rosso: One of the best pizza restaurants in Dallas has spread their wings and expanded with their mobile pizza oven. They’re usually at Green Spot Market on Mondays, Veritas on Tuesdays, Times Ten Cellar in Lakewood on Wednesdays and Times Ten Cellar in Ft Worth. Schedules may vary week by week so be sure to check their schedule first! Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Tutta’s Gourmet Pizza: These gourmet meat pizzas are made entirely from scratch, even the dough. You will taste the difference when you bite into a slice. Especially with ingredients like white truffle oil and candied pecans.
The Great Australian Meat Pie Company: If you are in the mood to try something new, I suggest you try out a meat pie. There are several to choose from including Chook-N-Dumplin’ and Bubble N Squeak. They also serve fruit pies for dessert.
Ruthies: Dallas’ only “Classic Grilled Cheese” food truck owned by In Any Event Dallas. They are a kitschy mobile food truck serving up the finest melt in your mouth classic grilled cheese sandwiches and other delicious creations – We’ll work with you to devise a menu for your special group. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Lee’s Grilled Cheese: You guessed it! Lee’s Grilled Cheese offers delicious Grilled Cheese but unlike Ruthie’s they are located in the Ft Worth area. They use only fresh ingredients like 100% Real Cheese, locally baked sourdough bread, and lots of love and care to make each grilled sandwich special. Food is cooked fresh, right in front of you, just the way you want it. Best of all, it goes great with our USDA Organic Certified Creamy Tomato Soup. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Nammi: A Vietnamese Fusion Truck serving up banh mi, vietnamese tacos, spring rolls and much more to the DFW metroplex. No, they are not trying to reinvent banh mi or Vietnamese Cuisine. The guys from Nammi just want to share our take on this Vietnamese classic and hope that others would enjoy eating it just as much as they enjoying making it. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
SsahmBBQ: Like Ssahm’s korean bbq brethren in other cities, the menu includes kalbi (bbq beef short ribs), ddak (chicken), daeji (spicy pork) and dubu (tofu), which become $3 tacos when wrapped inside a doubled-up corn tortilla stuffed with kimchi, cilantro, onions, red or green salsa and a sesame soy vinaigrette. Subbing a flour tortilla and add rice and cheese gets you a $7 burrito. Yum. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
The Butchers Son: Founded by Jon Wagner and Dain Pool, The Butcher’s Son is not your average mobile food truck. They’re serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner with two trucks throughout the area. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Brathaus: These street carts serve “The Haus”, “The SmokeHaus”, “The Heat” or “The Beast” (an all-angus beef quarter pound hot dog) on a hot fresh bun with your choice of sauerkraut, sautéed onions, jalapenos, mustard, spicy mustard, ketchup, and pickle relish. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Sassy Hot Dogs: Taken the American hot dog and burger the gourmet level. Be sure to try the WTF (Wrap That Frank). It is flour tortilla loaded with 10 ingredients then deep fried to a crispy crunch served with stringy fries. Sounds delicious and like a heart attack waiting to happen. Find them on Facebook and Twitter.
