You don’t have to go all the way Downtown to enjoy trendy food trucks. They park in Addison’s Vitruvian Park 6-9 p.m. every Thursday through August. Admission is free.
Last week, the choices were Gandolfo’s New York Deli Dallas, Cajun Tailgators, Tin Star Taco Taxi, Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, Semplice Cibo Italiano, Trailercakes, and Enticed (a snow cone food truck). The Durty Laundry truck was out with a DJ for musical entertainment. Each week the truck selection changes a little, so check U.S. Food Truck’s Facebook page during the day to find out which truck will be attending.
The food is tasty and inexpensive, so it’s great for the whole family. I opted for a $3 Tin Star taco and was not disappointed. There were a few tables set up, but not quite enough to support the crowd. If you walk down toward the water, you’ll find more available tables and a much better view and breeze.
Pets are welcome, and there were many pups enjoying their owner’s purchases. As of now, this event will continue until the end of August with the possibility of additional dates in the future.
The mobile restaurant trend has been spreading to Dallas. As we reported earlier, Valley View Center will host the Midtown Food Truck Fest on the third weekend of every month, starting July 20-22, as part of the new owners’ vision to attract visitors back to the struggling mall in preparation for a massive redevelopment.
