Is there a schedule or location directory for food trucks in San Diego?

    the "San Diego Food Trucks" page on facebook is pretty helpful for information about the various trucks in SD.

      Actually, the website associated with it, http://www.sandiegofoodtrucks.com/ has a bit more information.

      But really there is nothing authoritative or complete-Because a lot of the trucks seem to be rented out for private parties and events around this time of year.

      I saw a note that some trucks "may" be gathered across from ComicCon next week. So wherever those trucks usually are...well, they won't. Kind of like they are all gathered somewhere near Petco Park for Friday evening home games.

        I think it's actually http://sdfoodtrucks.com/

        Still, I like the FB page best of all, because it has links to all the truck FB pages which then have links to their own websites which then has a menu tab and maybe a schedule tab. Whew.

        Or follow them all on a twitter list:

          Could someone tell me which ones are REALLY good? I don't want to be driving all over only to be disappointed. I tried MIHO and Devilicious, based on recommendations by friends, and both I thought were pretty good quality. Any other standouts?

            Devilicious is my favorite so far, MIHO is good but very inconsistent.

            Tried Asian Persuasion last week and enjoyed it, some items are decent sized (the burritos) some are not (the sliders are tasty but not a good value).

            I like Tabe but wouldn't go out of my way for it...the tacos are 1 part meat 20 parts mango salsa and the salsa didn't seem particularly flavorful.

              I disagree on Asian Persuasion. From the taste, it seemed a lot of their items are pre-bought, pre-marinated or frozen.

              The trucks that have really good food are the ones that prep from fresh every day (like a normal restaurant would).

              I have a lot of blog posts where I talk about the food trucks, and I can post the entire blog entry if you're interested, but I don't want to digress off the main topic.

                I assume the langonesa (sp) is made by someone else, but the pork in the sliders seemed to be fresh and house made. Maybe not. I haven't tried anything else.
