While you may still be convinced that food trucks are a trend that’s just passing through they’ve actually been around for decades and their resurgence in popularity seems to be long-term.

Most people will tell you that the food truck scene is best on either the west or east coast.

Minneapolis also boasts other delicious food truck options like The Moral Omnivore and The Flavor Wagon.
