The competition was fierce, but 10 New York City trucks made the cut for our recent 101 Best Food Trucks for 2013 list. Some are have a few more miles than others, but no matter how worn their treads are, these are the best of the Big Apple’s food truck scene.
Our rankings are based on a specific methodology; we consider followings on Twitter and Facebook, critical review, and originality. We assign and crunch numbers with a mathematical formula and then rank the trucks based on our results. To be clear, carts, or any food vendor that doesn’t actually serve out of a truck, did not make the cut. Sorry, hot dog vendors!
Our New York selections range from trucks that serve everything from lobster rolls to spicy hot chocolate ice cream. Some are strictly trucks, while others have brick-and-mortar locations as well. Although this list is not all that the city’s truck scene has to offer, we assure you that it’s the cream of the crop. Check out the slideshow to see the full list.
