The Fat Shallot
Which mobile kitchen serves the best nosh in America? It’s an easy enough question to ask, but with the plethora of phenomenal food trucks in our great nation, it is not so easy to answer. We’ve rounded up around 150 of America’s most notable food trucks. Now, we need your help to rank them.
For our previous lists of the best food trucks in America — from 2014, 2013, and 2012 — we relied on research and the opinions of editors and notable figures in the food industry. This year, we want it to be all about the people’s choices. After all, if there were ever a dining institution that’s for the people, by the people, it’s a food truck.
A few notes: Only trucks will be considered. If it’s a trailer or a cart, if it isn’t on four wheels and can’t move on its own power from parking ticket to parking spot, it won’t be considered. Some cities (especially much-beloved Portland, Ore.) pain us: many of their food "trucks" won’t make the cut because they aren’t well, trucks. Also, this is a list of food trucks. Trucks that just make cupcakes or coffee are cupcake or coffee trucks, not food trucks. Dessert trucks will also not be considered.
Take a look at last year’s 101 Best Food Trucks in America, and help us shake up our ranking. This year, the list is in your hands.
