Food Truck Fridays are back!

March 14th 09:03am, 2012

Food Truck Fridays are back! For those of you who haven’t been to this food-filled extravaganza, get ready to eat your heart out. Food Truck Friday is Sauce Magazine’s response to the ever-growing food truck trend that’s been plowing through the country over the last couple of years. While food trucks are relatively new to the local dining scene, more trucks take to the streets each month, tweeting out their locations so hungry diners can line up for a meal on the go. Just about anything is available curbside these days – from pizza and hotdogs to bulgogi bowls and sushi rolls. Food truck fare is portable, affordable and made fresh on the spot.

This marks the second year of Food Truck Fridays, which will kick off in May and will be held monthly throughout the summer and early fall. Last year, hundreds of St. Louisans filled Tower Grove Park at each event to get a taste of all their favorite food trucks in one place. Won’t you join them?

Click here to watch a short video revealing what Food Truck Friday is all about.

And see below for a list of which trucks you can expect to see this year, along with details on times and location for the upcoming season. See you in May!
