For the sixth year in row, we’ve compiled the ultimate list of the best food trucks throughout America. Since 2012 there have been many changes to the list. Food trucks have been moved up and down our ranking; some have been removed; new establishments have opened and been added; others have permanently closed; and a few have remained on our list throughout — such as the well-known Ms. Cheezious in Miami and Kogi BBQ in Los Angeles.
To create our ranking of this year’s 101 Best Food Trucks in America we first constructed a list of over 200 food trucks from around the country, drawing from The Daily Meal’s previous lists as well as other food truck and city guides. From there we researched each truck individually; looking at their social media followings to judge popularity, and assessing customer reviews and ratings on various outlets such as Yelp, TripAdvisor, Zomato, and Roaming Hunger. Many of the trucks on our list are longtime staples that people still can’t seem to get enough of, but we also have some new contenders like the Venezuelan Arepa Zone in Washington, D.C., and The Fat Shallot in Chicago.
