These 8 Dallas food trucks are the only ones you need to know about
Trucks are only a couple of years old here, but as that kid from Rookie of the Year proved, you don't need to be old to be good at something. You just have to break your arm perfectly. From stuffed peppers to fried numbers that'll make your heart skip a beat (or four...teen), here are the city's eight best rolling eateries.
Where to Find It: You can generally find it at KWP, or here.
Dish to Get: It's all about the ice cream sandwiches, obviously, but if you need us to tell you the move -- peanut butter Captain Crunch. You probably grew up with very healthy teeth.
Where to Find It: They tend to get around quite a bit, so you'd best check out their schedule first.
Dish to Get: The Sweet & Lowdown. It's got strawberry jam on it, so it's totally healthy…ish… until you get to the bacon and goat cheese slathered all over an Angus patty. Amen.
Where to Find It: One of their two trucks is generally stationed alongside the others at KWP; the other's schedule can be found here.
Dish to Get: The Knuckle Sandwich is kinda the perfect date sandwich: it's so massively loaded with pastrami, cheddar, mozz, Parm, lettuce, tomato, 'shrooms, olives, mayo, and butter that two people can be easily satisfied.
Where to Find It: Frequently, they're at Klyde Warren Park. There's no trend here. Not at all…
Dish to Get: What are you, kidding me? It's the beef banh mi. Sure, the tacos are good, but the banh mi off of Nammi rivals some of the best Viet-sandwiches in Dallas.
Where to Find It: They tend to go to the Gexa quite a bit, but check their schedule here.
Dish to Get: Everything's smoked on the truck, so it's all pretty effing good, but you'd be a fool not to go for a smoke bomb: pulled pork- and cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped, smoked jalapenos. Yeah.
Where to Find It: Ruthie's is another of the KWP brigade, but they also hit up SMU a lot. Here's their full schedule.
Dish to Get: The Boss. BBQ and cheddar is a classic. Pro Tip: Add some onions for extra brilliance.
Where to Find It: These guys really like Walgreens. Find 'em generally at Lemmon & McKinney, Beltline & Montfort, or Midway & Frankford.
Dish to Get: The Korean tacos are good, but the kimchi fries are one of the greatest, most addictive substances known to (very, very fat) man.
Where to Find It: They're literally all over the place.
Dish to Get: They're known for their fried pies, of course, but the key to happiness here is two-fold -- grab the fried bologna sammy, because... fried bologna sammie, and get some fried guac (?!!?!?!) to go with it.
