Tasty Tuesday: Food Truck Park

A few weekends ago, my hubby and I tried out some food at the food truck park in Fort Worth. I've realized that my dream job would be to be a food critic buuuuutttttt, that time has passed so instead I will just really enjoy food.

I've never been to a food truck park but I was pretty disappointed with how expensive the food was relative to the portion sizes. For example, we got tacos and flautas. They were the same size but the flautas (with steak) cost $3.25 each and the chicken tacos cost $5.25 each. I was completely confused about that but I got over my confusion as soon as I took a bite. The food was delicious. My husband and I both went back for more flautas!

We arrived at the food park in the late afternoon/early evening timeframe so I think we missed a couple of trucks that we had really wanted to try. We'll just have to go back when there are more trucks. There was a sausage truck, taco truck, grilled cheese truck, pizza truck and wine and beer truck.

We got a grilled cheese sandwich with mozzarella cheese and spinach for our boys to eat but they had too much fun making friends with strangers to eat. It was $3.00-$4.00 so I'm not sure how likely it is that we'll get another one. We'll spend that money on the dessert truck! Yum!

He was doing an 'I can't be still' food dance.

My little vegetarian didn't even take ONE bite of the sandwich.

The blurriness can be attributed to my second glass of wine, I think.

Be prepared to spend some money for small portions at your local food truck park.
*Word to the wise: 'Don't go on a completely empty stomach.'
Our food truck park experience turned us into fans and regular patrons. For some reason, I am slightly addicted to food trucks and there are tons all over DFW so eventually I'll have enough of my share of food truck food.

Have you ever been to a Food Truck park? What did you think about your experience?


  1. I as just at our food truck park a week ago (posted pics on instagram). I have to admit--they are overrated! lol I think it's cool to see tho.

  2. Aww! They're so handsome!!! I love it.

    I've never been to a food truck park but there's a street by my job that has different food trucks everyday. There's even a Great Cookie truck. So tempting!

  3. i love taco trucks!!!! those tacos look delicious but your boys are stealing the show with their cuteness!!

  4. @Nik - Very overrated, ha ha. I was looking forward to having some tasty, yet eccentric and off-the-wall creations but that must only exist on tv. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for finding something like that eventually.

    @GG - Thanks girl! Try something from one of those trucks sometime. :-)

    @Alisa - They were delicious too, not gonna lie. Expensive but delicious.

  5. I have to admit I had never heard of a food truck park until I just read this post! How sad is that?! I love the "I can't be still food dance"! (Thanks for the comment on Mom is the Only Girl, too! I know there are more people out there who worry about their kiddos than just us!)

  6. Oh my garrrd, looks so yummy ! Food critic would be a great choice, but I generally like everything I eat so I'd be a bit rubbish !
    I am hosting a blog hop today over at my blog :-)

  7. I had no idea they had a park dedicated to food trucks...wow!

  8. @My Froley-I'm heading there now...a bit late.

    @Mrs. Pancakes-Yep, just something to do when you're bored. :-)

  9. I've never been to a food truck park, but we have lots of food trucks on the streets of Philadelphia, and they have the best foods.
