Truckeroo Gets in Gear
Washington, D.C. fans of food trucks can get their moveable feast on at Truckeroo this Friday at the D.C. Fairgrounds.
Truckeroo is a monthly food truck festival held June through October. More than 20 Washington, D.C.-area food trucks, like the BBQ Bus, Curbside Cupcakes, Red Hook Lobster, Sinplicity Ice Cream, and Stellas Popkern, park at the corner of Half Street and M Street SE, across from the Navy Yard Metro Station and serve up tasty street eats from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Admission is free and includes live music and games like cornhole.
Food options range from Cajun and Creole at Cajunātors to Hawaiian favorites like teriyaki steak, chicken, and tofu at Hula Girl, gourmet sandwiches on Lyon Bakery bread at TheFicelle, Spanish cuisine at Pepe, and tacos at Surfside Truck.
Truckeroo keeps on trucking throughout the summer, with the food trucks gathering July 13, Aug. 10, and Sept. 28.
Signature dishes to try include CapMac’s gourmet pasta, Big Cheese’s grilled cheese, Feelin’ Crabby’s Crabwich, Mojo’s steak, chicken, pork, and vegetarian Chivito sandwiches, and TaKorean’s Korean tacos. At Chef Driven, the cuisine changes weekly, and all-natural foods are on the menu at Doug the Food Dude.
D.C.’s only empanadas truck, DC Empanadas, and mobile pizza kitchen DC Slices are also stopping by the event, along with Hot People, whose slogan is "Hot People Eat Hot People Food."
