ChinoWayne May 13, 2011 05:14 PM

There will be a classic car show and food truck fest from 11 - 7 on Creekside Road in Valencia, which is apparently Valencia's car dealer row, Sunday as per this web page:


You can find the line up of food trucks that will there at this link:


Of the trucks listed, which trucks do hounds recommend and which trucks do hounds think should be avoided?

    I went. Weather was fab! Even warmed up for awhile. Very well organized. And, I believe it was because trucks were spread out. 3 -4 were parked within each of the dealerships. Many also parked on the street. I'd say 1/2 mile ea. way up/down. Maybe 45 -50 trucks. Lines were very tolerable. I waited no more than 20 minutes which was at Fresh Fries.

    Winners for me:

    Fresh Fries - Right up there w/Benitas Frites. Hot, big bites, crispy out, soft in and not greasy! Had them straight up w/garlic aoli. Friend's daughter had the sweet potato fries with nutella and peanut butter-sounds funky BUT, it was delish!

    Fishlips- fresh easy to walk away with and kind staff. Spicy Tuna hand rolls @ 2.50 a piece! :) Could have eaten much more!

    Also tried:

    Komodo - chicken taco w/o the tortilla. Just ok. A little salty for me. Maybe better with the tortilla.

    Ludo Bites - Couldn't eat the fried chicken or bisquits but, tried the Jalapeno slaw. NOT a fan! :(

    Rosa's Bella Cucina-Took home a prosciutto slider for DH who didn't join us. He liked it wery much at dinner. Also got the tomato and cuc salad. For 4$ - it was ok. Plentiful/flavorful. Also took home to have w/dinner. (added to my left over salad from Golden States cuc and arugula) :)

    Wanted to try:

    Lake St. Creamery - Their Aztec Sacrifice Ice Cream sounded really good. :(

    Border Grill - Couldn't find :(

    Not like dinner at The Golden State two nights ago but, overall, a very nice day. No stress express!

    BTW- @ Golden State. Their S.P. friess are the bomb and try the Maple Toffee Ice Cream too!

      Border Grill was at the Mercedes Dealership which was further away than the one's on Creekside. Tried the quinoa fritters which were great.

      It was a really well planned event. We went a little past 11 because we didn't want to get stuck in horror show lines.

      Stayed until I think 1 and managed to try 7 trucks total.
