Just 10 years ago, you would be hard-pressed to find much more than a hot dog, ice cream, or a taco being sold from a food truck. These days, more and more mobile kitchens are hitting the streets, serving up gourmet meals with high-quality ingredients. Food trucks are definitely a trend on the rise across the nation, and our community in San Luis Obispo is no exception. Check out these four great food trucks that have been spotted near our SLO apartments:
What the Truck has partnered with Central Coast Brewing to serve their craft beer loving patrons great pub fare. You'll find them parked at their Monterey Street location when they aren't traveling to special festivals or events. Their menu features quesadillas, cheese-laden sandwiches, and curly fries. What the Truck keeps things fresh with a weekly rotating menu. Past menus have featured items like the Cuban Style Sando and the Street Taco Trio. To stay up-to-date on their weekly menu offerings and location, visit their website.
Zen Dog Cart is not your average hot dog stand with boiled mystery-meat tubes. This food truck features health conscious hot dogs made with 100% beef and locally sourced ingredients. Vegans will be happy to know they also offer two Beyond Meat options. This kitchen offers homemade relishes and specialty dogs with creative flavor combinations. Locals are loving the flavors so much that Zen Dog just launched its second cart! You can find them at 673 Santa Rosa St. Visit their website to learn more.
B&TW stretches the definition of food truck, labeling themselves a "roaming wood-fired eatery". This mobile caterer specializes in wedding receptions and formal events, but also has been spotted around SLO at community festivals. The chefs at B&TW serve gourmet Neapolitan-style pizzas fresh from their wood-fired stove. Have you ever seen a truck with a chimney? Visit their website and follow them on social media to check them out at their next event.
This BBQ truck travels up and down the central coast, and has been spotted at many events and festivals in and around SLO. Their menu features a variety of BBQ options with beach appropriate sides like pineapple slaw and Hawaiian chips. Meat-lovers will be tempted by the 18-hour smoked brisket and the 50/50 Burger, which boasts 50% bacon and 50% beef. Vegan and vegetarians can enjoy options like the BBQ Jackfruit Sammie and pineapple fried rice. Check out their schedule to see where they will pop up next!
In 2019, gourmet meals can be ordered from a truck or trailer window. These are just a few of the delicious food trucks making the rounds in SLO. Contact us today to learn more about making this vibrant community your home.
