Comment With Your Favorite and Win FOOD!

Food trucks are all the rage these days - if you happened to see What To Expect When You're Expecting, you got a taste of just how many food truck locations there are around Atlanta (no, it wasn't just for the movie!). Included in this article are the ones I could confirm.

It seems that the best way to keep up with what's happening with the Food Trucks is to like them on Facebook. Links are below.

What can you get? Depends on the day and location. I've listed a few popular trucks, but there are way too many to include them all! CLICK HERE for a list of trucks that frequent the Atlanta Food Truck Park. And CLICK HERE for a list of Atlanta Street Food Coalition Vendors. And that's just for starters! Be sure to comment on this article with your favorite trucks, food items, and current locations I may have missed (some from last year are currently NOT in operation: eg. Harry's in Alpharetta has postponed indefinitely and I can't find any info on trucks at The Galleria).

Some Popular Trucks!

- Dubbed “Far Out Food” for its scrumptious blend of Asian and Mexican flavors and (so they say) Atlanta's First food truck.

Sweet Auburn Barbecue - Need I say more? 

WoW Food Truck - All menu items are made from scratch daily! From pot roast sandwiches to chicken and grits. Check out the menu on the website and track their location!

Nana G's Chik-n-Waffles - Chicken and waffles, wings, dessert waffles...

YumYum - Atlanta's First Licensed Mobile Cupcake/Dessert Truck 

Once we make our first truck stop, I'll be sure to report! Share your favorite locations, trucks and food items here by commenting on the article. Someone who comments is going to win FOOD. Honestly, I'm so busy adding hyperlinks to this article that I haven't had time to decide what, so it will just have to be a surprise! (Unfortunately I don't believe you can buy Food Truck gift cards yet - would be a brilliant idea though!)

We LOVE Happy Belly Food truck as well. I often make a special trip to the Cobb Galleria office park on Tuesdays to grab lunch from them. Another one of my favorite trucks is "Ibiza Bites." They can be found at Food Truck Fridays at Atlantic Station.

The atlanta food truck park was fun! Went last Friday. It was their grand opening. About 15 trucks, live music, lots of people watching, and you are free to bring your own beverages.

I like lots of the Food Trucks but my favorites are Happy Belly and Mighty Meatballs. And of course the cupcakes are tasty at the Pink yum yum truck. And I did notice the Food trucks in the movie, "What To Expect When You're Expecting". Expect to see more food trucks all over Atlanta & partake!
