For those that live or work in downtown, you know all about the benefits of a food truck setting up shop nearby. As a quick lunch break or a tasty dinner solution, food trucks always seem to be just a block away serving up some one-of-a-kind dishes. With the growing popularity of food trucks in the streets, we have also noticed an increase of food trucks serving guests at weddings. Some trucks serve the dinner portion, others handle dessert; nonetheless, it is a unique experience that a couple can add to their wedding to treat their guests.
We have compiled a list of some of our favorite food trucks in the area that you may be interested in for your wedding. Whether their food is considered savory or sweet in our eyes, we don’t expect you to take our word for it- link up with a truck on social media to find out where you can find them next for your own tasting.
