Discover the finest food trucks of Charlotte, NC
For most of us college students, summer is really hard to let go. From beach road trips to laid back barbecues
with way too much food, we often find ourselves reminiscing for those carefree summer days. When you’re really feeling for those summer vibes, head onto Food Truck Friday in South End, Charlotte.
Food Truck Friday is a weekly event in Sycamore Brewing held every (you guessed it!) Friday at 5-10pm consisting of live music and a line-up of various food trucks. The food truck prices are often below ten dollars but be prepared to spend more if you are an active foodie that loves to eat. Most food trucks do have a debit/credit card system, so no need to worry about having to hit up an ATM before going. There are a few parking spots at the brewery as well as a spacious lot across the street. However, keep in mind that many people head over here after their 9-5 jobs and spots fill up quick. so be sure to head over a bit earlier so you’re guaranteed a chance at the good food. It is an outdoor event so stay updated on their social media pages to see if they will cancel that week due to weather conditions. If you want to know which food trucks will be participating, follow ‘Food Truck Friday – South End’ on Facebook as they post the line-up weekly.
There is a good mix of food trucks ranging from gyros, pizzas, tacos and even desserts. Among them however, Papi Queso is a favorite with a strong fan base- and with good reason. They specialize in grilled cheese sandwiches but with a genius twist. One of their best-sellers is the Pig Mac which is a grilled cheese sandwich consisting of pulled BBQ pork, cheddar mac n’ cheese and bourbon onions. It tastes better than it sounds – if that’s even possible. Another food truck that always has a line is Tin Kitchen, known for their creative tacos, quesadillas and sliders. Many rave about their Korean-influenced plates such as the pork belly tacos and Korean BBQ sliders. There are usually 8-10 food trucks every Friday so you are guaranteed to have a wide selection to choose from.
Think of Food Truck Friday as a reward to yourself after a long week of classes, studying and working and head over there this Friday! It is the perfect opportunity to gather with friends to grab a beer, chow down on mouthwatering insta-worthy plates, enjoy southern music and the remnants of the late night summer breeze.
