Ruthie’s Rolling Cafes are a trio of food trucks that have set a new standard in roving delicacies.  The first food truck, called Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, introduced a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich that took Dallas by storm. Offering melt in your mouth grilled cheese sandwiches to the DFW area, word spread like wildfire and Ruthie’s achieved a cult following overnight.

“We use our grandmother’s nostalgic cheesy dreamy recipes and prepare them with love in our “kitchen on wheels”, the result is Ruthie’s Rolling Café, our best idea ever,” said owner Ashlee Hunt Kleinert.     Continue reading

by Steven Doyle

If you happen to spot the Belgian waffle truck flying around the city, take pause and note that there are real Belgians aboard.

This isn’t some wacky fairground idea to sell griddled dough stacked with fresh fruits, chocolate and whipped cream. Waffles are part of the daily diet of Belgians near and far according to the Belgian Waffle Company food truck owners  Frank Coucke and Ingrid Gysel.   Continue reading

Chef West will soon be bringing home the bacon with his bacon themed truck he will call Unforsacon Bacon.

We were first tipped off to the food truck by West’s sister, Amber West, who is the bar manager at Central 214, but we were asked to sit on the story until West put in his notice at ZaZa.           Continue reading

One Arts Plaza Competes With Food Trucks

by Steven Doyle

Due to construction concerns the food trucks on Flora that were located between the Myerson and Winspear on Flora have moved just a city street away to the vacant lot at Flora and Leonard. The small distance offered the group of restaurants located at the east end of Flora in One Arts Plaza a boost of fresh energy and a group of takers for lunch on the Plaza.

Chef David McMillan reports that his pig cart located in front of his restaurant Screen Door has taken on more customers each day. McMillan offers a plate of smoked pork and trimmings for less than $8, making it a true bargain for quick lunch time diners in the area.               Continue reading

Taco eaters rejoice. Tonight is the grand opening of Rock and Roll Taco’s debut inside the Deep Ellum bar La Grange. Food truck operators James Quinonez and his wife, Mary Ann Quinonez, have joined forces with La Grange owners Stephanie and Rob Schumacher to open this rocking new restaurant inside their bar.
