Around Town: Truckaroo #4 @ Fairgrounds, 7/8/16

Truckaroo DC

Truckaroo is here. 27 food trucks wrangled together in one spot for your eating pleasure!

Friday, July 8th, come down to the Fairgrounds, near Nationals Park, and wade through the myriad of food truck options.

Defeat the humidity with cool sweets at Carmen’s Italian Ice or The Orange Cow. Or come for lunch (opens at 11am) or dinner or a late snack (closes at 11pm). There will be music, games and adult beverages as well.

I’m going to try to make it this time. I’ll likely pick between Urban Poutine and Due South, as two food trucks I have yet to try.

Future Truckaroo dates are August 19 and September 16.

Food trucks have definitely lost a step in the popularity department over the last couple years. The hipsters have moved on to the new, shiny thing and now food trucks are ‘simply there’, serving good food (most of the time) and acting as a proper business.

Once a month in the summer, over 20 food trucks circle together in the Fairgrounds space near Nationals Park to dish up some of the best in DC’s food truck options. There is also live music, adult beverages and games like cornhole.

Open from 11am to 11pm, it’s good for lunch, happy hour and dinner!

Some notable tasty food trucks:

  • CapMac
  • Peruvian Brothers
  • Korean BBQ Taco Box
  • Surfside

Food trucks I may need to try:

  • Tacos Matadores
  • Urban Poutine (Oh Canada, help us get on the cheese curds and gravy truck…err train)
  • Due South
