Best Food Trucks in NYC?

Hi - I'm visiting NYC this weekend and wanted to try the food trucks there. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Any type of food is great!!

  1. Lately I've been liking the burritos at Tribeca Taco Truck--especially the carnitas and pollo asado. They park on Broadway bet Spring and Prince on most weekdays.

    1. has good reviews of the trucks. Search for Vendy award winners on their site. Personally, I like Comme Ce, Comme Ca (Moroccan truck) and Qwik Meal (cart).

        Yeah, I like Comme Ci Comme Ca too, and I like giving these guys my business because they are so damned nice.

          Yup, Samir's a cool dude. Another good Moroccan truck is the Bistro Truck.

          Aside from midtown lunch's twitter tracker, there's the app that shows you what trucks are near you on a map. Be aware it sometimes doesn't list all the trucks and most carts. For example, the King of Falafel is never shown on the map, but he's in the same place everyday so it's nbd. I use both for finding lunch.

      2. I have tried alot of the trucks in the midtown east since I work in the area but other than Taim mobile(high quality and fresh) and Wafels & Dinges(which is super over priced for what you get), none are worth more than 3 min wait. Those middle eastern carts meats are just greasy and not so good in my opinion.

          1. I like Uncle Gussy's, on 51st/Park. Terrific greek food, you really can't order wrong here. Nicest guys running this truck.
