The 8 Best Food Trucks in Phoenix
Phoenix is a great town for restaurants, and a great town for motorized vehicles, and eventually the two things were inevitably going to come together -- thankfully not in the uh-oh-Grandma's-driving-again-type way, but rather in the far more pleasing food-truck kind of way. With that in mind, here are the finest rolling restos in The Valley...
Winner of AZ Central’s 2013 “Best Food Truck” award, Luncha Libra offers an ever-changing menu with everything from Mexican food to Asian-inspired cuisine. Despite the always-evolving menu, you will typically always find its perennially good quesadillas, salads, and fresh fruit juices.
The Grilled Cheese Truck does, well, grilled cheese. You can add anything from Fritos to sliced apple to basil and it even offers dessert versions of its legendary grilled curds (the Mom's Apple Pie Melt has sharp cheddar w/ brown butter, caramelized apples, and candied walnuts).
Named best food truck of 2014 by Phoenix New Times, Jamburritos is a Cajun grill on wheels that’s about as New Orleans-y as things get here in Phoenix. Amongst the Jamburritos and tacos, you’ll find classics like jambalaya bowls and a killer Texas Toast Catfish Sandwich.
If you thought you couldn’t get great seafood in Arizona, you thought wrong, The Main Lobster Lady brings everything from different kinds of lobster rolls to shrimp puffs. All items are made from scratch with nearly all-local ingredients. We leave it to you to guess which one is flown in from the coast.
If you want something a little lighter than the usual comfort-oriented food-truck meal, look no further than Naturally Sweet. At this truck you’ll find all different shakes, juices, and all-natural ice creams.
Emerson Fry Bread is the go-to spot for authentic Indian fry bread in town -- you can look forward to pairing the delicious bread with red and green chile tacos and carne asada.
Short Leash does dogs, and does them well. You can try one of its six signature numbers, or create your own with toppings ranging from Sriracha to bleu cheese. Then throw on some sides, like the fried pickles, chips, or cole slaw just for good measure.
Asian-inspired cuisine can seem rare amongst food trucks, but Hao Bao gets it just right. All items are simple, authentically Chinese, and handmade -- and amazingly, Hao Bao also prides itself on being as nutritious as it is tasty.
