Foodie Friday – Food Trucks!

There is a reason I didn’t have a Weekly Workout post this week – I didn’t work out.

Plain and simple.

On June 6th hubby and I spent 4 hours at the pool, and my smart self did not put on sunscreen.  I.Was.Torched.

It hurt to have clothes on…it hurt to move.  So I did not run or go the gym all week.

This week my back has been bothering me, but I hope to get a run in this weekend as I have the Peachtree Road Race in 2 weeks!

So this week for Foodie Friday I’m serving up something different…food trucks!

They seem to be popping up in major cities, and I, for one, love them.

It’s such a fun way to try new things and it makes for a fun night out!  Thursday nights are the “food truck” night in a city close by and that’s where we head.  I lovingly call it “Food Truck Thursday” :)  We went both last week and this week with some friends and had a great time.

This week I totally forgot to take pictures of our food, but trust me, it was tasty!

Each week they post on their Facebook page what food trucks will be there that week.  Generally there are around 7-8 trucks along with 2-3 dessert stands. 

Last week we had empanadas from On Tapa the World…they were soooo good!


The one on the top is chicken and on the bottom is beef.  The beef was definitely the favorite with my hubby and I.  The chicken could have used more seasoning, and the green sauce was so good to dip them in!  Next time I want to try to Broccoli and Cheddar empanada.  They make them fresh to order so they were piping hot when we got them.  I’m ready for them to come back!

We also got some food from the WOW Truck.  This truck was voted #1 best food truck in Atlanta, and it also had a little cameo in the movie “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”.


They have a large hearty menu, but hubby got the Kwanzaa Bowl, which had smoked pork on a bed of potatoes, topped with shredded cheese, their “kicky” sauce, and BACON


Our friends got the Smoky Bowl – smoke pork on a bed of roasted potatoes, cheddar cheese, their house made barbecue sauce, and chipotle cream.  They gave it two thumbs up!

I got two of their arepas, which are griddled corn cakes stuffed with something :)  I got one stuffed with brisket and the other with tomato, basil, and mozzarella.  The brisket was lacking of seasoning but the TBM was very good!


This week hubby and I shared a bowl of BBQ mac and cheese from the Mac the Cheese truck.  We were a little underwhelmed by the type of cheese sauce they used.  Next time I want to try their Spinach and Artichoke mac and cheese…it sounds delish!

We also had a pork taco, beef taco, and sesame fries from the Yumbii truck.  We tried this truck out last year and really enjoyed it, and they didn’t disappoint this year.  The fries are super good with the sesame oil on them.

If you live in the Atlanta area, check out where these awesome food trucks are and have a family outing.  The Alpharetta Food Truck Alley happens every Thursday night from 5-9 p.m.  I know we’ll be going back many times this summer with our friends.

Do you have food trucks where you live?  What’s been your favorite item you’ve had from a food truck?

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Until next time,

  1. Food trucks are all the rage around here in Louisville lately.. never ate off of one before. Hard to find good vegetarian dishes off of them. They look delish though.

  2. We have a local food truck called Melt that serves gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. They will throw things like buffalo chicken or bacon on them and they are sooooo good. The truck comes to the hospital where I work once a week and always sells out.

  3. Need to make a date to go with you one night this summer!

  4. So fun trying stuff from all the different food trucks, great night out idea.

  5. I don't see food trucks here in Houston very often. Maybe I'm just in the wrong area lol. I would love to go to a food truck festival or something, I think that would be a blast!


Your comments make me smile :)
