Over the last 10 years or so, food trucks have steadily been gaining popularity. They’ve become a great way for talented cooks to share their love of cuisine with a wider and more diverse audience. The burgeoning brewery scene has also boosted the popularity of food trucks and it seems to be a match made in heaven. Either way, since they’ve gotten so popular there are a number of tasty food trucks to choose from, all in the city of Gainesville!
Off the Griddle – This food truck specializes in using fresh, farm raised ingredients in their American fusion menu items. They have a variety of savory snacks and meals, from fish tacos to quesadillas, Pad Thai, Po’ Boys, and chicken wraps.
Humble Wood Fire – These pizza crafters make unique wood-fired pies with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Check out their calendar to see where and when they’ll be serving their artisanal pizzas.
Swamp Religion – Get a Cajun take on all your favorite eats – Swamp Religion does wings, sandwiches, fries, and even gator tacos!
Papa Pineapples – This Hawaiian themed food truck must be good. It got itself a 5-star Yelp rating and has expanded from one truck to a truck and an additional food trailer. The food truck hails from Ocala, but ventures into Gainesville to serve up its island cuisine.
Mayflower Cellars – These guys serve up gourmet bratwurst, Italian sausages, Frankfurters, and even vegan sausages! They use high quality ingredients from local farms to make these tasty dogs. They can be found on Wednesdays at the Union St. Market from 4-7pm and on Thursdays at Swamphead Brewery from 5-9pm.
There will also be a Food Truck Rally happening on November 19, 2017 at One Love Cafe in Gainesville! Come out between 4 and 9 to try something new or get a fix of one of your old favorites!
