If there’s anything we enjoy more than air conditioning in the summer, it’s a yummy Food Truck Rodeo! Durham has delicious food trucks and, being the somewhat novice foodies that we are, we love most of them. This food truck rodeo was in Raleigh but many of the same trucks we know and love were there so it was completely worth it. It was a beautiful day for standing in line for greasy, melty food! Unfortunately, I let myself get too hungry so the only thing I could think of when we arrived was getting some food. And I ate it so fast that I didn’t get any photos. But I did get some photos of some of the best trucks.
This is Only Burger (below) and it is AMAZING! It is one of the many restaurants that started out as a truck but was so good and so popular that they were able to -open a brick-and-mortar restaurant (that is conveniently located near our house!) which is also very popular. It’s my favorite burger, and the only one I request when we’re in the mood for burgers!
American Meltdown has yummy grilled cheese of all varieties.
The Parlour Ice Cream (truck below) is the best ice cream I’ve ever had in my entire life. I’ve written about ice cream dates before because it’s my favorite place. It’s another one of the amazing establishments that started out as a truck and became so popular that they were able to open a brick-and-mortar. You can probably tell from the photo below that there’s a long line for their ice cream and their store is actually no different. There’s always a line outside the door each time we go there. If you’re ever in Durham, NC and find yourself in the mood for some ice cream, Th Parlour is the place to go.
This food truck (below) is Chirba Chirba and they have yummy dumplings. Any time they’re around, you can count on a line that stretches a mile long for their dumplings. The really disappointing the about them is that the line is super long and you have to wait forever. Even though they’re good, we don’t usually have the patience to wait.
How do you feel about food trucks? Do you or would you eat from them?
