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 →
Food trucks have permeated our lifestyle and we are seeing them now so often we almost do not pay attention. In Texas Austin is the food truck Mecca, but we have our share in Dallas and they are doing some great things. Tasty things.
Sure, we can find the usual suspects at Klyde Warren Park, lined up dutifully dispersing good grub to the masses all week long, and the truck Yard has a constant rotation in their repertoire which keeps us on our toes, and there are other delicious hot spots across the city where you can scope out your favorites. We have even seen trucks lined up for parties, often prepaid by the host, and this would include weddings and bar mitzvahs. Those are always good fetes. Continue reading →
You may recall us discussing U.S. Food Trucks, the company who runs commissary for many of the city’s food trucks, and also assist with leases and procuring of the trucks. Today U.S. Food Trucks announces they are opening a new food truck park in Dallas called “Fly-By Food Park” located at 2500 W. Mockingbird Lane Dallas, TX. The “Fly-By Food Park” grand opening event will occur Friday, June 28, 2013 and Saturday, June 29, 2013 from 5 to 9 p.m. Before the grand opening event, U.S. Food Trucks will host preview weekends Friday, June 14 and 21, 2013 and Saturday June 15 and 22, 2013 from 5 to 9 p.m. Continue reading →

Ruthie’s Rolling Café is a triple threat in the Dallas food truck business. In a time when more than just a few trucks are rolling up their welcome mats and high-tailing it out of town, Ruthie’s continues to expand. As with any business, longevity is given to the very best. Ruthie’s has always been known for their quality sandwiches with their first truck which features above average grilled cheese sandwiches (try the BBQ filled grilled cheese for maximum impact).
