The Top 10 Food Trucks In America

We usually choose to highlight the top five to ten food trucks in cities separately across the country, but today we’re looking at the nation’s food trailers together. It’s the only way to truly show the diversity of mobile food stands in the country, as well as where the top trucks are located.

From the 2012 Smithsonian’s list of the 20 best food trucks in America, we’re doing a countdown of the top 10

10. Schnitzel & Things, New York City – It’s no surprise that the first catering truck on this list is located in the great city of New York. Up against some of the best restaurants in the world, the Schnitzel & Things food truck is making its mark on New York, winning the “Vendy” Rookie of the Year award in 2009. Founder and owner Oleg Voss, a Ukraine native investment banker turned restaurateur, created a menu full of Austrian schnitzel (veal and chicken cutlets, cod filets and eggplant), bratwursts, and potato and cucumber salad.

9. Hapa SF, San Francisco – From its inception to the present, this food trailer’s concept is centered on modern, organic, casual Filipino foods. Despite competition in the foodie paradise of San Francisco, Hapa SF is known to create “some of the cleanest, most technically sophisticated food one wheels,” says SF Weekly’s Jonathon Kaufmann.

8. Coreanos, Austin – From just its unique name “Coreanos” – a word that translates to “Koreans” in Spanish – it’s clear that a truck full of fusion flavors is coming your way. This mobile food vendor serves dishes that are a perfect mix between Korean barbeque flavors and traditional Mexican ingredients. Its menu ranges from tacos to bacon-wrapped hot dogs to loaded French fries, made with a pile of beef short rib, chicken, spicy pork belly, onions, cheese and creamy “el scorcho” sauce.

7. Where Ya At Matt, Seattle – Matt Lewis, founder and chef of this mobile food stand, is a New Orleans native that found joy in creating Creole food for Seattle. The truck serves up muffuletta, jambalaya, gumbo and a variety of po’ boys. The fan favorite is the “Peacemaker,” a po’ boy with deep friend oysters, bacon, cheddar and pickled peppers.

6. Torched Goodness, Phoenix – Rightfully named, this catering truck is devoted to serving crème brûleé – “perfectly burnt” custards with flavors ranging from the classic vanilla to the more exotic lavender or maple bacon.

5. Fojol Brothers, Washington, D.C. – This self-proclaimed “traveling culinary carnival” brings cuisine from mythical lands to the nation’s capital. Each truck represents a mystical land and – in addition to its wonderful dishes – serves up fantasies that include costumes and alter egos.

4. Clover Food Lab, Cambridge, MA – It’s just how it sounds. This ‘food lab’ amazes its followers with concoctions that stun both meat and veggie-lovers alike – which is especially noteworthy as this truck serves a strict vegetarian menu. This locally sourced vegetarian company has already expanded its empire to include two brick-and-mortar restaurants and five catering trucks.

3. Lardo, Portland – This mobile food vendor’s motto is, “Bringing the fatback since 2010,” which refers to a cut of meat from pigs’ backs. With a tone of humor, the owner and chef Rick Gencarelli compares the cut to bacon, just without the meat. Lardo’s vision is focused on Italian flavors and local produce and meats from farmers, both of which are featured on his seasonal menu.

2. GastroPod, Miami – In 2009, the GastroPod food trailer hit the streets of Miami as the first mobile gourmet kitchen in the city. This truck is a sight for sore eyes; it’s shiny silver 1962 Airstream pod (that’s usually swarmed with fans of the fusion cuisine). Dishes include the banh mi pork tacos and the shitake flan.

1. Kogi BBQ, Los Angeles – Kogi BBQ is the modern-day food truck revolutionary that transformed the negative connotation of street meat into the recent trend of gourmet meals-to-go. This catering truck sports Korean-Mexican fusion dishes, and is known as America’s first viral eatery. The signature dish is a beef short rib taco that is laced with a 21-ingredient sauce.
