Delco’s Favorite Food Trucks: Must-Try Rolling Roadside Cuisine

Sometimes they’re parked at the same place, on a schedule. Sometimes they surprise and delight at fairs and festivals. Some cater special events — including weddings! Some are only seasonal. What do these food trucks have in common? They take some of Delco’s best cuisine on the road and bring it right to the hungry masses. The best part? When they leave the county, they show our neighbors who’s king in the food truck game.

So, how do you find your favorite? Follow them on social media, bookmark their websites, and make a plan to food truck it the next time you’re out and about in Delco. Then, consider the “wow” factor of booking a food truck for your next birthday party, sports tailgate, family picnic or other special event. It doesn’t matter where they’re headquartered — they’re stocked and ready to roll!
