Cackylacky’s (Saturday): Gourmet burgers and hot dogs await you at this new truck that has bold unique flavors all over the menu! Craving a gyro? How about a Greek Knight burger with gyro meat and tzatziki? Like it spicy? Poblano mayo will kick it up a notch on any burger!

Wurst Busters (Saturday): Traditional German cuisine? Yes, please! Knockwurst, currywurst, spaetzle, German potato salad, cucumber salad, and more await you from Wurst Busters! We’ve had quite a sampling of their menu and we love their spaetzle covered with grilled onions and their amazing sauerkraut with a currywurst! This is simple German food done right, and we couldn’t be more appreciative that they moved to Jax to serve it!
Cuban Fire Grill (Saturday): Authentic, slow cooked, homemade cuban cuisine featuring Cuban sandwiches, lechon asado, ropa vieja, and flan for dessert. Their steak sandwich is ridiculously good for all the meat lovers out there! We’re also very appreciative that they serve their Cuban sandwiches with potato sticks, it’s such a nice touch! They were recently named by our readers as Best Cuban Food in Jacksonville, so check them out!
Hapa Li (Saturday): This food truck took Jax by storm last year and hasn’t slowed down since. Tender pulled pork, chicken, and their signature spamiyaki burger give us on the mainland a taste of paradise! Specialty items spam musubi and dessert haupia are unique and flavorful and simply can’t be found anywhere else. Your day isn’t complete without living the #hapalife!
Treemendous Sea and Soul Food (Saturday): Longtime BBQ favorite Treemendous has branched out into the soul food category with their new truck, and we are in love! Fresh fried massive grouper filets, Mayport shrimp baskets, oxtail, no filler crab cakes, fried pork tenderloin sandwiches, and homemade southern sides. Can you ask for anything better? You know if it’s coming from the Treemendous brand then it’s quality food and quality service, so show them some love at their Takeover debut!
Blazin Azn (Saturday): Bacon fried rice is all we really need to say, but there is SO much more to love at Blazin Azn. Spring rolls, egg rolls, and incredibly tender teriyaki shrimp and chicken are all worth ordering. Plus, they are now featuring sushiritos and a sushi menu on the truck! Chef Charlie loves to surprise us with over the top rally specials too! There’s a fusion of flavors at Blazin Azn so we have faith there is something that everyone will enjoy! They were recently named best Japanese by our readers, so stop by and check out why they voted him #1!
Berndt Ends (Saturday):This Florida BBQ style food truck came out swinging with bold flavors, low and slow smoked meats, and homemade sauces. They are defining Florida BBQ with their award winning brisket and ribs, in fact they were recently named the best brisket in Jax! Truly, you can’t go wrong with anything off Berndt Ends menu. Even their sides shine all by themselves, don’t miss the dat’l beans and the crak mac (slow smoked mac and cheese)!

You can find their vintage Airstream at festivals around Jacksonville and beyond, but we are happy to be seeing them more often! We can’t do without their ahi tuna. The best part about What’s the Catch is it’s bringing truly local flavors to the locals – most tacos are inspired by what’s freshly available in Jacksonville. They’re debuting a new menu this week, so don’t miss the Alabama Hot Fish!

They have all your BBQ cravings including slow smoked pulled pork, beef brisket, tender ribs, and homemade sides. We always prefer a combo platter because variety is the spice of life, but also because 4 Trees delivers big flavor across the board and you won’t want to miss anything!

Nitrogen Creamery (Saturday): Do you think ice cream is the best dessert in the world? You’ll love it even more made with nitrogen! All flavors are homemade daily using -320 degree nitrogen! The use of the nitrogen brings out the true flavors of each ice cream and make it quite a decadent treat. We’re big fans of the nutella (who isnt?) and we’d give up all other ice creams for an unlimited supply of their honey cinnamon.

Fresh cake slices including speciality carrot cake, red velvet, customer favorite cheesecakes, peanut butter pops, and more! They’re making everything from scratch with love and family recipes.

Van D’s Dutch Delights (Sunday): In a sea of cakes, be a waffle. That’s the old saying right? This truck brings Dutch stroopwafels to the streets which is basically a waffle cookie hybrid. They’re crisp and lightly sweet alone, or try them with a drizzle of caramel, Nutella stuffing, or ice cream to amp it up! They make milkshakes, ice cream, and serve delicious coffee for all your traditional dessert needs. If you want to try something you’ve truly never tried before, Van D’s needs to be your first stop!
