Tucson- food truck reports?

EWSflash Jun 19, 2012 07:05 PM

Tucson is so spread out, and food trucks, by virtue of being trucks, are mobile, so I wondered if some hounds would help a sista out by posting about their favorite local food trucks- the name, where they locate themselves, what they offer, what they do best, etc. I know they have a site, it's (sorry) something like tucsonfoodtrucks.com, but I don't know if the original "legacy" taco trucks are a part of that, and I want to know about as many as possible.
FWIW, my husband's favorite taco truck is the one that's across the street from the Los reales landfill, so we're not snobs.

    There is a handful of food truck websites covering the Tucson area. Here are the two main ones:.

    Tucson Food Trucks
    http://www.tucsonfoodtrucks.com/
    Note: Site owned by a marketing agency and event organizer.

    Tucson Food Truck Roundup
    http://www.tucsonfoodtruckroundup.com/
    Note:Site owned by Dinnerware Artspace, which organizes events with food trucks.

    The majority of Tucson hot dog carts have permanent locations and do not participate in the round-ups. One hot dog cart, Robdogs participates in the large events.

    To find out about the trucks, read Food Truck Diaries in the Tucson Weekly by Adam Borowitz.

      We've been going to the food truck roundups - that way we can pick the food style that appeals to us at that moment.

      On the web at http://www.tucsonfoodtrucks.com/ or you can 'like' them on FB
