Food Trucks/Carts in Atlanta?

ssbenn11 Mar 17, 2011 01:16 PM

I actually saw this post for another city and thought I would pose the same question!

I've lived in Atlanta for some time now and I'm wondering where are all the food trucks? You often get the best food from these guys! I am aware of a couple:

- The King of Pops - outside Buddy's in Little 5 most weekends - popsicles only (while extremely delicious!)
- The Hot Dog guy outside of Moondogs in Buckhead - again, hot dogs are awesome (I like the one with everything including Goldfish!) but I only get it in Buckhead on wild party nights (and it's been awhile...)
- The cupcake lady that's usually around events and festivals, I saw her last at the Sweet Auburn curb market

Does anyone know of any others? Maybe some that are open more often or during daytime hours?

      El Burro Pollo
      Yumbi
      Yummy Cupcakes
      Westside Creamery

      If you follow any of these guys on Twitter or Facebook, they frequently reference each other and that's a good way to find others.

        Yeah, there's a lot going on in the food cart world in Atlanta. They keep hitting legal stumbling blocks.

        That said, check out Atlanta Street Food Coalition on facebook -- they keep everyone up to date. Tomorrow there's an "urban picnic" (read: place to buy from food trucks) in midtown from 11-2 at Woodruff Art Center, Saturday there's another one at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, same time.

          Here's a great update on Street Food in Atlanta -- hopefully they'll sort out the permitting issues soon! http://midtown.patch.com/articles/str...
