The 13 Wildest, Weirdest Food Vehicles on America’s Roads
We recently put together a list of the 101 best food trucks in America for 2017, but what about interesting food vehicles in general? America’s roads have some crazy cars, trucks, and motorcycles that are spiffed out to look like all sorts of things — there are upside-down school buses, cars with hot tubs, and even some vehicles that resemble animals or food items.
One man went so far as to transform his Harley-Davidson motorcycle into a cheeseburger on wheels. The insane (and awesome) motorcycle has a loaded tray table between the handle bars and ketchup bottles as shock covers, with hot cheese that seems to be melting over the front wheel. Another crazy food vehicle? The Space Shuttle Cafe, which serves food from a realistic looking NASA space shuttle on wheels. Check out the rest of our list for more of the wildest and weirdest food vehicles on America’s roads.
Big Banana Car
Something about this car makes us so happy. It’s not even intended to promote any company; builder Steve Braithwaite drives the converted pickup truck (and incredibly realistic-looking giant banana) around the world for charity.
If Goldfish is “the snack that smiles back,” this would be the car that smiles back. The biggest question is: How was this vehicle even designed?
Lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions… and ketchup-bottle shock covers? This cheeseburger-shaped motorcycle was painted by artist Chris Cruz and is owned by Harry “Hamburger Harry” Sperl, who just might ride it to your next party if you book the “Burger Bike.”

Is this not the most adorable car you’ve ever seen? Our dream is to take a ride inside this sweet, giant Hershey's Kiss.

Who wouldn’t like to take a ride inside a giant peanut, especially with Mr. Peanut himself riding shotgun?

Red Bull gives you wings — or, in this case, a car with a giant can on the back of it.
Perhaps the most intriguing dining option available at the resort at the Mammoth Mountain ski resort in California is the Roving Mammoth, a food truck crafted atop a snowcat that can tackle the unforgiving terrain of the mountain to deliver breakfast and lunch burritos. Hey, when you gotta have a burrito, you gotta have a burrito!
Westport Flea Market Truck
This truck, owned by the Westport Flea Market Bar and Grill in Kansas City, actually looks good enough to eat! The truck is a giant burger with all the classic toppings, which is fitting since outlets such as The Pitch, Zomato, and The Food Network named Westport Flea Market’s burgers the best in Kansas City.
