By the time that I arrived to the Food Truck Court on Saturday afternoon, the number of kids at the Earth Day celebration had subsided. The trucks were still doing a bang-up business and many reported they had to shut down because they ran out of food. Since Dallas’ summer weather seemed to hit on Saturday, Mister Cool still had the longest line with at least 20 people waiting. Mister Cool’s Graham Ross says he served over 1,000 folks on Friday. Yum Yum was busy with not one, but two trucks. Good Luck Food Truck, City Street Grille, and Messy Cheesy Food Truck were there as well.
My 9-year-old son chose Good Luck Food Truck. Their menu of burgers, tacos, and chicken and waffles speaks directly to kids. He declared the chicken and waffles ($8) a success and would not let me touch it. I tried the fajita tacos (2 for $5). They were nice-sized, with just-right cooked skirt steak, and the right amount of heat. Good Luck’s tacos could compete with any Tex-Mex bricks and mortar restaurant.
Jump.City Street smartly tweaked their menu for the event by adding a barbecued pulled beef wrap and chicken and waffles to their more upscale offerings such as their grilled cheese sandwich of goat cheese, arugula, and strawberries.
Messy Cheesy Truck was there as well with their everything-cheese menu. Although they offer a mac and cheese grilled sandwich, they told me their straight up grilled cheese was their best seller. I didn’t get a chance to try Messy Cheesy’s offerings, but look forward to it when they get back to Dallas.
