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.

Some Popular Trucks!

Yumbii
- 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...

Big news: The Atlanta Food Truck Park at Howell Mill is now officially open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. I'l have to admit I can't give any advice here, as I haven't experienced this yet myself, but I plan to very soon. I just know it's an event! And a family-friendly one too. You can bring blankets and chairs, experience live music, and there's even a weekend farmer's market. Different food trucks daily, arts and crafts, even bocce ball. Friendly leashed dogs are welcome outside the dining area and food truck area.

LOCATION:
1850 Howell Mill Road. The property is the northeast quadrant of I-75 and Howell Mill Road. The first permanent food truck site in Atlanta offering food trucks to the community and visitors 7 days a week for lunch and dinner! There is also a weekend farmers market, live music and artist farm!
