In case you haven’t noticed (or hadn’t even voted), we’ve added some new categories to our Best of Big D: Food and Drink poll this year.  With the number of trendy coffee shops growing in Dallas, it only made sense for us to add a ‘Best Coffee’ to the ballot. And food trucks. How could we ever forget these essential mobile kitchens? Food trucks make our world go ’round, and we’re honoring them by giving them a place on our polls.

I was already planning to write this post about food trucks being on Best of Big D before word hit the street that Tutta’s Pizza food truck was on fire this morning, according to George Lewis. Tutta’s Pizza is nominated for this year’s ‘Best Food Truck,’ and another contender, First Bite Gourmet, just tweeted out to them, “Oh no!!!!!! Ugh! Please let us know if you need anything else! We may be able to use some extra helpers??? Over the weekend??”

It’s clear the food truck community in Dallas is strong and supportive. Even though they’re all competing on the same ballot, they lend a hand wherever they can. I’m pretty proud of Dallas. Aren’t you? Now go vote.
