The food truck scene is smoking pretty much everything. Well, unless you’re like me and you live in a place where it’s -30 for more for half of the year. But if you are lucky enough to be somewhere like Dallas, Texas, your food truck scene is year round.

At this point, it makes as much sense to plan what food trucks you want to check out on a trip as it does restaurants. Some of the best food you’ll find in any community is served out of the back of a truck, and will blow your mind.

The Corn Dog Guy

Sometimes the name of a business tells you everything about it. You would think that would be the case with The Corn Dog Guy, but it isn’t. This is a vegan corn dog truck. Yeah. Drink that one in for a few moments before continuing.

The Corn Dog Guy has a solid reputation in Dallas for dishes out delicious and relatively healthy corn dogs, which is a phrase I never thought I would write in my life. Still, it’s more than worth seeking out when you’re in town.

Serious Salads Food Truck

Okay, this might seem a little absurd considering you were just told to go eat a corn dog. But remember that it was a vegan corn dog, so this isn’t so outside the box. And you can eat healthy, even in a food truck situation.

Serious Salads Food Truck has some absolutely delicious looking salads. The Honey Zest Salmon sounds delectable, as does the Famous Fiesta and the Kale Cucumber Avocado. What’s nice about this truck is that you can eat healthy without sacrificing flavor or options.

Cousins Maine Lobster Dallas

When a food truck promises on the front page of their website that they will bring Maine lobster to your neighborhood, they had better deliver. And by all accounts, Cousins Maine Lobster does exactly that by importing their chief ingredient right from Maine itself.

Keep in mind that this one is a franchise, but it’s a reputedly a damn good one. The website has a clear and easy to navigate schedule letting you know where they’re going to be. If you can track down a great clam chowder alongside a lobster tail and tots, do it.

Cuates Kitchen

Born in Veracruz, Mexico, the Rodriguez twins have brought a taste of home to the streets of Dallas. And it’s great that they did that. In 2019, they were actually given the Best Traditional Taco Award at Tacolandia by Dallas Observer. I don’t know what that means, but it sounds cool.

Cuates Kitchen delivers authentic Veracruz style cuisine, which is the fancy way of saying that they run a badass taco truck. By all accounts, this is a must eat spot in Dallas. Any place that sells Jarritos is alright by me.

Cajun On the Go! Food Truck

The brilliance of eating in a place like Dallas is that there are so many styles of food to choose from. And that includes the flavors of New Orleans, conveniently brought to you by Cajun On the Go! Food Truck.

To be fair, it’s more of a food bus than a food truck. But Shakespeare said a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and a similar concept applies here. This is the place to get Cajun Gumbo, Red Beans and Rice, or a Catfish and Shrimp Basket.
