The food truck phenomenon is red hot in Houston. Although the ubiquitous taco trucks that we have known for years are still found all over town, the new food trucks serve everything from hot dogs and burgers to crepes, Korean BBQ, cupcakes and, yes, even tacos. If you like to eat it, chances are there is a Houston food truck that will serve it to you.
Although some people may be squeamish about eating food from a truck, be assured that food trucks are strictly regulated. You can feel as safe eating from a licensed food truck as you do when eating at your favorite wheel-less restaurant (and it is probably at least as safe as eating in your own kitchen, and without the cooking and cleaning up).
Some trucks stay in one place most of the time, while others are on the move nearly every day. Many Houston food trucks have Twitter accounts where they announce where they will be, their hours and daily specials. Many of these trucks can be found in central Houston, but they may be seen anywhere in town and even in the suburbs. This is a tough business and food trucks come and go quite often. Although some favorites have disappeared, new trucks have come along to feed hungry Houston diners. Before making a special trip to visit a food truck, verify that it is still in business and where they are located.
