Eating your heart out will be easy when Arlington rolls out a plethora of food trucks at the fall edition of the popular Texas Food Truckin’ Fest on October 25 and 26, 2013, at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Bring friends and chow down on some of the best food—from simple to gourmet—served from four wheels.
For Austinites who love our own home-grown food truck culture, this is an opportunity to see what other cities have conjured up and to sample some different culinary fare. Of course, Austin has the best, but there’s good competition out there, too.
Come hungry, and wear your stretchy pants. Texas gourmet food trucks, live bands and performers, kids’ activities (including balloon artists and face painters) and more will line the streets during the event. The two-day fest will give foodies much to be happy about as fan favorites like Nammi Truck, Ssahm BBQ, Doughboys Pizza Truck, My Cupcake Garden, Brown’s BBQ and many more line the ballpark streets with delectable dishes. Drinks will be available for purchase, too.
Live bands will feature the musical talents of Dovetail, The Jet Poets, Zach Coffey, Kites and Boomerangs and many more. And there will plenty of kids’ activities to keep little ones happy and occupied.
Remember to pace yourself. This is a two-day event, so choose your top picks and go there first. Consider sharing food finds with friends. If several people go to different food trucks and meet later with their selections, you avoid some lines and get to sample a variety of cuisines.
The fun kicks off at 4 p.m. on Friday. Tickets are available the day of or for advance purchase at www.texasfoodtruckinfest.com.
