A fan favorite. You can’t go wrong here because, well, pizza. Pizza that is prepped and beautified for you in a wood fired oven in just 90 seconds. Heaven on Earth exists.


The French Quarter

Mouth-watering cajun/creole cuisine while overlooking the Big Apple? An interesting, yet wonderful combination. Get a little taste of New Orleans at the purple truck. And they don’t mess around when it comes to fixings. All sandwiches are doused in lettuce, tomato, pickles and remoulade sauce.


Amanda’s Bananas

For the times the sweltering sun is too much to handle, or you just need to cater to your sweet-tooth craving. It’s basically guilt-free ice cream because the ice cream is literally banana. Bananas = fruit, and fruit = healthy, so yes, this counts as #healthyeating. It’s also dairy free and gluten-free. WIN.


Girardi’s Kabobs

…because who doesn’t love meat on a stick? Pair that meat on a stick with stuffed fried dough and you’ve got yourself a kabob and a knish. Choose from multiple sauces to fit your cravings.


Ms. Fu’s Yummy Food Truck

A mix of Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Korean and American flair. It may take a little time to receive your order, but that’s because every item is made from scratch with quality ingredients. It’s all in the details. You can’t go wrong with any item on this menu.


Dark Side of The Moo

If you’re feeling adventurous and extremely hungry, it’s time to take a trip to the “Exotic Meat Emporium.” This is not your typical menu. You’ve got your standards, but then you’ve got your not-so-standard elk, alligator, wild boar, and kangaroo. Take a trip to the dark side.

There is a mac & cheese grilled cheese here, so that should be convincing enough. Oh, and you can make that a buffalo chicken or BBQ chicken mac & cheese if you’d like. These options are incredible. A must-try for sure.



lexylicious ice cream

Think of this as your gourmet ice cream sandwich destination. You can customize your own sandwich choosing from six different ice cream flavors and nearly 20 outsides (or, “buns”). Your outsides can range from cookies, to pretzels, cereal, and even potato chips. Your inner 5-year-old self is screaming for ice cream [sandwiches].


Pure Pita

Definitely give this truck a try if your goal is to avoid grease and sweets. Pure Pita aims to serve health-conscious food that tastes amazing. Soup, salad, dip, tacos, pita, platters, burgers, paninis — the options are endless.
