Dallas’s food truck craze is on a roll. Join us in welcoming five new mobile restos revving up this month.
Tin Star Taco Taxi
The cab-inspired truck — dubbed Paco — serves gourmet tacos (chorizo and egg, fish, bacon and avocado, grilled chicken) and street nachos (chips topped with seasoned ground beef, queso, and jalapenos). Find locations online at tinstartacotaxi.com.
The Italian kitchen on wheels creates classic dishes with a twist. Think hamburger pizza, chicken Parmesan, and cream cheese and mozzarella-stuffed mushrooms. Fun fact: It’s registered with the Go Texan program, which means cooks use mostly in-state products. Find locations online at facebook.com.
Little Vessel Grill
Tapping into the Asian-American scene, it’s not your average truck grub. Menu items include tomato soup shooters, pulled pork tacos, and avocado, chicken, and blood oranges stabbed with a skewer. Find locations online at facebook.com.
The purple and gold truck owned by two LSU alums hopes to bring the flavors of Louisiana to Texas. Just in time for Mardi Gras, the truck rolls out Cajun-style gumbo, shrimp po’boys, fried boudin balls, and beignets. Find locations online at facebook.com.
Expect south-of-the-border bites from Dallas’s first Salvadorian-meets-Mexican truck. We’re talking staples such as burritos, tacos, and carne asada, as well as lesser-known plates like pastelitos (meat pies stuffed with potatoes, rice, and beans). Find locations online at facebook.com.
And that’s the word on the street.
