A crowd came for tacos, tamales, barbecue, hot dogs, cupcakes, ice cream and more from Atlanta food trucks
The Howell Mill Food Truck Park on the Westside hosts a weekly gathering of food trucks every Tuesday. On June 7, 2011, a crowd came to the food truck event at the park, which is located in a vacant lot near the intersection of Howell Mill and Collier roads. Both new and established Atlanta food trucks were parked in a loose circle on the perimeter of the lot and three picnic tables stood in the center.
The Tamale Queen truck served tamales and tacos, while the Pup Truck offered a variety of hot dogs. The King of Pops was on hand with his signature popsicles, while Yum-Yum Cupcake presented its cupcakes.
The ice cream sandwiches, made with a choice of cookies, from Westside Creamery were a crowd favorite, as were the tacos from Tex's Tacos. The tiny hamburgers from Slider U were also a hit, especially among the kids in the crowd.
Sweet Auburn Barbecue prepared plates of pulled pork, along with sides like macaroni and cheese. The Good Food Truck served food in cones, while Yumbii sold Korean barbecue tacos. Hail Caesar's menu included chicken Caesar wraps and shrimp po' boys. The Munch Food Truck had some technical difficulties at the beginning of the event, but was finally able to serve bahn mi.
