This week I have been thinking about food trucks and what we might be missing in the North Texas area. We are seeing more and more trucks roll through the streets since the city of Dallas has loosened its collar a bit with regards to the legalese of food truck mania.
Now it’s time we kick it up a bit like other cities and bring on some incredible trucks that we can chase with verve. Here is a list of five trucks we would like to see in Dallas. These are not far fetched since each of these trucks exist already. Continue reading
