If you are usually one of those people who avoids buying anything from food trucks, I suggest you step out of your comfort zone and give them a chance! While it may not seem like it, some of these trucks carry one-of-a-kind type of food that you really don’t want to miss out on. So next time you stumble upon one of the following food trucks, don’t hesitate and go for it!
1. Schnitzel & Things Truck
For those of you who are unfamiliar with schnitzel, it’s a “hand pounded, lightly breaded thin cutlet fried to golden perfection” that is usually served with potato salad and lemon wedges. Schnitzel & Things sells chicken, pork and cod schnitzel, all served with fresh ingredients. Plus the size of their servings is ridiculous. Definitely worth the price!
2. Waffles & Dinges
While it is a little pricier than regular waffles you might find elsewhere, the waffles from Waffles & Dinges are one of a kind. You can personalize your waffle, which by the way is always warm, soft and freshly made, with fruits, ice cream, whipped cream and more. The mixture of these flavors and textures in your mouth is absolutely heavenly. You have got to try!
3. Korilla BBQ
Korilla BBQ offers build-it-yourself wraps and bowls with Korean and Mexican flavors and does so at a reasonable price. The menu consists of quality protein, vegetables and kimchi, in addition to seasonal specialties and every so often a few items from the secret menu. And just to get it out there, Korilla BBQ has been mentioned on The Food Network! Now don’t you think that’s something worth checking out?

Ladies, there is a new innovative way to eat ice cream! Ditch the regular cones for j-shaped cones and make your summer treat eating experience just that much better.
