Food Truck Wars Fort Myers
Canteens, Chuck Wagons, Roach Coaches or my favorite, The Food Dude are a few names that people call a food truck. Years ago a food truck was a truck that pulled up to a factory, garage or construction site with a variety of food for the hungry man. The food they got from these trucks usually wasn’t the best, but the guys still flocked to them everyday to purchase a bite to eat. Now let’s fast forward…Today the food truck is a gourmet experience pleasing foodies through out the United States.
You will find food trucks parked in front of million dollar companies, fairs, and even featured on The Food Network. Specialty food trucks that serve cupcakes, Mexican, vegetarian, kabobs or gourmet burgers are flourishing across the country. Food truck festivals have become very popular over the last 10 years as well as food truck wars. A food truck war is the ultimate battle for the foodie. Picture several food trucks, all in one place, serving a mix of eclectic specialties to food like your grandmother made, but only if your grandmother was a really good cook. They are serving up their best food to you, hoping that you will give them your vote. Six Bends Harley Davidson is hosting this years Inaugural Food Truck Wars Fort Myers on April 16th, 11:00 – 6:00.
