Two distinctively different food truck/trailers in Fort Worth shut down . Zombie’s vegan food truck announced late last week that they would stop serving, and now news that The Wienerman is moving on.
However, this week, we are adding a Dallas-based food truck to our schedule: Lucky Ducky Dogs. They started rolling a couple of weeks ago. I’m not sure about their tag line: “Fun With Meat,” but we’ll find out as soon as possible.
Yellow Belly is new to the Dallas market as well. Yellow Belly is focusing their point-of-view around the yellow tomato. It seems a bit odd, but the menu looks attractive, so we’ll see if they can deliver.
Since it is getting colder, we are seeing a slowdown in events. Sigel’s on Greenville still has their Wednesday and Friday night events. There is a new popup event at the CVS at Preston/Beltline on Thursdays. They call it Gourmet Eatz. This week will feature Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, Taco Party, Sweetie Vs and My Cupcake Garden.

The Pickled Carrot is serving up banh mi sandwiches, primarily in Denton since the regulations have eased in that city.
Good Karma Kitchen demonstrates why running a food truck can be more difficult than a bricks’n'mortar restaurant. They won’t be out this week, as their truck “Lucy” threw a rod and will be need a new engine.
With that, we have our schedule for the week. Always check Facebook and Twitter before venturing out! Continue reading "Oct 15 Food Truck News and Schedule in Dallas/Ft. Worth"4 Comments »
Fewer pop-up events this week, with lots of the food trucks catering private events. We include private events in our schedule, by the way, so that if you have a hankerin’ for a particular truck that day, you’ll more readily see it’s availability.
Monday Night Foodball at Preston/Frankford will no longer happen, apparently due to local unhappy bricks ‘n’ mortar restaurants. They various food trucks are trying to find another large parking lots in the same area.
Wednesday has the usual pop-up event for dinner behind Crate & Barrel on Knox Ave. The “Food Truck Experience” continues at Sigel’s on Greenville. Addison’s “Bite Nights” at the Savoye continues on Thursday.

There are lots of events going on this week, including Monday Night Foodball at Preston/Frankford, Wednesday night on Knox Ave., behind Crate & Barrel, and the monthly “Parking Lot” event at Sprouts.
Occasionally, though, there will be an event that should receive over the top highlighting. This coming Sunday, October 7, will be a gathering of some of the best Dallas food trucks has to offer to raise money for the North Texas Food Bank. The “Food Truck Palooza” will include Easy Slider,
Trailercakes, Nammi, CoolHaus, Enticed, Ruthie’s, Good Karma Kitchen, Potato-Potahto, Crazy Fish, The Butcher’s Son, Gandolfo’s, K-Wheelz Kosher, and Cavalli Pizza.

This week, we add My Cupcake Garden to our schedule. Owner Pamela Boyd offers standard and unique flavors such as red velvet, apple, zucchini, and strawberry/banana. I’m happy for Pamela to get her enterprise rolling. However, if there are any other truck-a-preneurs out there, hear my plea: No more cupcakes! Between Dallas and Fort Worth, we’ve now got My Cupcake Garden, TrailerCakes, Cupcakin’ Machine, Cravetopia, Red Jett Sweets, Hummingbird Sweet Shop, Auntie AM’s Sweet Stop, and Sweet Grooves.
There are fewer big food truck events this week. There are a few, maybe 2-4, food trucks showing up at various outings, but nothing like the “Allen StrEATs” event last Saturday. I’ve highlighted a few directly in the schedule.

This week, we are also adding a new Dallas-based food truck to our schedule: Lab of the Streets comes from partners Amra Ridge and Clarence Jackson. They own two restaurants in Oak Cliff: Lil’ Cajuns Grill and Sports and Catfish Connection. The truck is ostensibly Cajun, but they plan to experiment a little on the menu (and hence the name). They tell us to look for “specials like chicken balls, or chicken gizzards sautee’d in a special sauce served over rice and our famous alligator link”.
Update Tuesday: Added Nammi #2 / Dos Equis “Mobile Academy” schedule.
Update Thursday: Cedar’s Park cancelled Thursday evening due to impending weather.

Happy belated Anniversary to our DFW Food Truck schedule! Yes, it has been over one year. We published our first schedule on August 01, 2011 with Gandolfo’s, Nammi, City Street Grille, Jack’s Chowhound, and Ssahm. It was all manually entered, but with just a few trucks, it was manageable. Today, we follow the ongoing activities of well over 100 food trucks and trailers in Dallas and Ft. Worth. 35 of these participate in our scheduling. If there is a truck/trailer that you need represented here, tell ‘em.
This week, I am introducing a small new improvement. Whenever there are multiple food trucks at one location for dinner events, I’ll try to group them together in the spreadsheet. For example, for Friday dinner, it’s easy to see all of the Cedars Food Truck Park attendees.
New participating food trucks this week include Ruthie’s Cheesesteaks and Steve-O’s Tamales in Fort Worth. Owner/operator of Steve-O’s is Steve Bowen, who is serving smoked brisket, pork tacos, nachos, and of course, tamales.
There are several smaller events going on this week, in addition to the usual Wednesday at Sigel’s/Greenville, Wednesday at Crate & Barrel on Knox Ave., and Thursday in Addison. Jack’s Chowhound and Easy Slider will be together at The Gingerman on Thursday evening. Cedar’s Food Truck Park is in full operation Thursday and Friday nights. Several of the food trucks, including Good Karma and Enticed, will be in Fort Worth on Saturday to support the Better Block project. Several food trucks will be at SMU for their upcoming foodball game.
There will be several food trucks in Dallas on Saturday afternoon, September 8 to support the Dallas Stair Climb at Renaissance Tower. Quoting their “About” page:
Fulfilling a promise to “NEVER FORGET” their brothers and sisters who have died in the line of duty, firefighters from Texas and beyond converge upon a downtown Dallas skyscraper, don forty to sixty pounds of protective gear and climb 110 stories into the sky.
