FORK IN THE ROAD
This mobile galley’s culinary creativity shines.  From the ever-changing Brewer’s platter that includes locally-sourced meats, cheeses, breads, to inspired dishes such as spring oat risotto, carrot fritters with pistachio sauce, and sweet bloody maria pop-tarts, Fork in the Road is sure to intrigue the taste buds.  Also vegetarian and vegan friendly.

EL HABANERO LOKO
Tacos, one of the most popular offerings of all street foods, are done right by this food truck (as well as their brick & mortar location).  Homemade tortillas are made into a myriad of tacos, tortas, quesadillas, tostadas and more. Don’t miss the chicken gorditas, beef cheek taco, or pork al pastor tacos; all are served up with salsa varieties that don’t skimp on spicy!

THE GASTRO GNOMES
Thoughtful, ever-evolving gastropub fare at affordable prices set this food truck apart from other street food. The rotating menu options channel international cuisine to down-home southern cooking which makes for a crave-worthy menu.  The Pimento and Candied Bacon Burger with a side of truffle and herb French fries is a local favorite.

Gyro happiness available on the go!  This mobile eatery serves up authentic Greek and Mediterranean food.  Besides your choice of lamb, beef, chicken or vegetarian gyros, baklava, spanakopita, and a killer Greek salad round out the culinary experience. This food truck’s popularity has resulted in a brick and mortar location tucked away on Ashland Avenue.

This mobile kitchen serves up an amalgamation of Memphis Style, Carolina Style, and Texas Style BBQ.  The result is simple, delicious Southern BBQ.
