FOOD TRUCK 411

Another big turnout for the Raleigh Downtown Food Truck Rodeo yesterday!

Food Trucks are gaining momentum now in the Triangle, with new laws recently allowing them in Downtown Raleigh. They provide tasty gourmet food conveniently and quickly at reasonable price points.  Many Raleigh folks have been able to sample a variety of these eats at the Raleigh Downtown Food Truck Rodeos that have occurred recently.  The general public is starting to gain awareness of them and a fondness for particular food specialties served up fast and hot from these trucks.  There is one more Food Truck Rodeo event coming up in Downtown Raleigh on October 13th. Downtown Durham features many Food Truck gathering events as well.

If you find a truck that you love, there's an easy way to follow them and find out exactly where they are at any given time and to know exactly what they are featuring! Follow them on Twitter and you can easily locate them wherever they may be parked and make a plan to go and grab a taste! The Rodeos are a lot of fun and a great way to discover many of the different trucks, but it can be a  little frustrating if you went there to specifically sample a particular truck or two and you find the lines to be quite long. Why not track them on Twitter and make it easy on yourself?

The following list is a reference to local area Food Trucks and their Twitter handles. Add them to your twitter list and you can see anytime where they are in the Triangle area.  Another thing to help find new and old favorites are to follow the local breweries on Twitter as well. They almost always have a truck or two parked outside their brew pubs most evenings. They usually announce who's at their breweries on Twitter. What's better then a local brew and a local food truck lunch or dinner? Definitely a fun and easy way to get your share of delicious food on the go!!

This list will continue to be updated and feel free to send in any I've missed!!

  2. Nice I also share with you something hope this helpful for you my friends The first rule for using graphics in your truck(or anything for that matter) is to make sure that they’re not just decorativebut rather
    contribute to the whole theme you are conveying. Make your food, your personality, where you live, what you like etc.. Take your passion
    and draw it out. Don’t go too crazy, like using graphics that belong together is a big no. It also conveys a sense of professionalism. You want your graphics to look like they belong in one piece and are part of a whole. Check it out thanks.
