Food trucks in SD...where are they?

Besides Mariscos German truck that shares a parking lot with a liquor store in Normal Heights and 2 other Loncheras...which has some of the best food on the planet.
Are there other food trucks out there in SD that I don't know about?

    Although they have restaurants the best trucks are El Paisa and La Fachada

    1. There's one that goes to 25th and F on Sunday nights.

      1. Thanks Masa and beth!
        You would think that these trucks would be all over..
        I can't believe they aren't in North County..they would kick some serious a$$ here.

        1. Our backyard opens onto an alley that has no traffic. I always wanted to hire a truck for a party. Just open the back gates, have the truck park in the alley and let the guests order anything they want. Anyone know an owner?

            Try DM ing Alice Q on Twitter. I think a fried of hers, or a friend of a friend of hers knows how to hire a truck. They did it for a kids bday in a park. ;D

              She actually had a catering service come to her house for a party - but there was no truck. I thought about doing a truck for a birthday party in Dec. - I was going to try to hire the La Princesita guy in Linda Vista with my friend's caterer as a backup. We also looked into having the Kogi truck come down, but they wanted 6K. Wound up throwing a fabulous dinner party at Farmhouse Cafe for 30 people instead, for about 1/3 that amount.

          2. Just ate Mariscos German on your tip.


            Maybe best food in all of San Diego.

                Yeah, thank you!

                I wonder why there aren't more.

                Must be zoning or something. Anyone know?

                  Boy were you people right about Mariscos Germán. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a buenissimo.
