The Happy Grilled Cheese: People’s choice for best food truck in all four major Jacksonville publications, The Happy Grilled Cheese is one of Jacksonville’s heavy hitters! Take it cheesy with their Daddy of the Mac and loaded cheese fries. Plus, Pro Tip: you can add mac and cheese to any sandwich if you’re feeling decadent! Our favorite is to add it to the California melt! You’re also not going to want to miss their sweet, decadent, chocolate laden S’mores melt!
Fusion Food Truck: Chef Ashley Amin (winner of top Indian chef in San Diego) brings us the best Indian cuisine in Jacksonville from her truck, proven by being recently named one of the top 50 food trucks in the United States! We highly recommend their award winning banana curry and tikka masala paired with a decadent Thai tea. If sambosas are on the dessert menu, you’ll definitely want to have one or ten! Really, we love everything on Fusion’s menu, so order liberally.
Hapa Li: 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!
Delish Kebabs: You’ll smell these amazing grilled kebabs before you get to the truck! Serving up authentic and award winning Brazilian charcoal grilled kebabs, Delish Kebabs is taking simple food and making it extraordinary. Their bacon wrapped chicken was the winner of the 2014 Food Truck Wars! Don’t miss their yuca fries either. Also, the garlic sauce. OMG the garlic sauce!
Muzzi’s Madhouse: Muzzi’s Madhouse! Come hungry to order Muzzi’s, these tremendous portions of Chicago style comfort food will leave you ready for a nap. Try their signature slow cooked Chicago beef sandwiches, homemade gorgonzola chips with balsamic, chicken parm subs, and meatball subs! You also won’t want to leave without an order of their toasted ravioli to snack on, they’re kind of amazing.
Son of a Butcher: Jacksonville’s best authentic philly, and we really can’t disagree. Son of a Butcher prepares fresh sandwiches, poboys, tacos, and more absolutely loaded with meats and cheeses. Looking for a hearty meal? This is your choice! We cannot get enough of their garlic parm fries. Go ahead and get two orders, you’ll thank us. They’re also known for their secret menu takeover items, so keep an eye out for that!
Wauga Wauga: This food truck is bringing an exciting twist to gourmet cuisine with fresh ingredients and creative flavor combinations. Fifteen years of experience are put into the recipes on this truck and that dedication shows. Particularly well known with beach locals, Wauga Wauga has developed quite a following with their vibrant meals that are as delicious as they are pretty. You’re going to want to order the Fiesta Nachos loaded with queso, bourbon chicken, bacon, pico, and pineapple salsa!
Butt Hutt Smokehouse: This is Jacksonville’s gourmet BBQ truck with housemade sauces and melt in your mouth meats. Butt Hutt takes bbq to an elevated level for all the foodies out there! Their brisket with coconut curry mustard is our favorite order, but if you’re feeling decadent the Florida Fries are heavily layered with pork, peppers, onions, and smothered in their signature sauces.
Joyshtick Food Truck: One of our new trucks, Joyshtick has integrated the worlds of video games with food for the ultimate gamer munchies. Over the top burgers, delicious wraps (Pro tip: add pickles and buffalo sauce to the Finish Him wrap…YUM), loaded fries, and more! The best part is while you wait for your food you get to play video games on their outdoor screens! #winning
El Agave Azul: You simply can’t fake how fresh the tacos are from El Agave Azul! They’re serving up authentic Mexican street tacos with carne asada and al pastor, burritos, American tacos, gorditas, and more! From hand made tortillas to crisp veggies and perfectly cooked meats, this is the soul warming mouth watering Mexican cuisine you’ve been craving!
4 Trees Smokehouse: New to the road but not new to BBQ, 4 Trees Smokehouse is the mobile version of the long time favorite Big Oak BBQ in Middleburg. 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!
The Salty Dog: Here is your taste of Americana, everyone! The Salty Dog focuses on giant beef hot dogs and burgers. There is also a bacon wrapped deep fried hot dog, so take a breath and prepare yourself for that. Menu items are served with their delicious and popular waffle fries which are available topped with hearty, cheesy chili.
Sweeto Burrito: It’s easy to see why Sweeto is one of the most sought after trucks in Jax– their burritos are some of the best in town! Be prepared to share, these are HUGE! The White Chick, Buff Chick, and Rise and Shiner are our personal recommendations! Plus, tater tots in a burrito, need we say more? This is definitely flavor worth fighting for.
Pie95: If you haven’t heard about this truck yet we aren’t sure where you’ve been. The rustic, smoky flavors of true Neapolitan pizza are the allure to this truck, along with the highly decorated and talented hands behind the pies–Chef Evan Eriksen. Hailing from Michelin starred background, this chef put a true Italian wood fired oven into his trailer and is producing authentic thin crust pizzas with his signature Margheritas, Biancas, and more!
Seaweeds Maine Lobster Rolls: Who doesn’t love a good lobster roll? Born and raised in Maine, owners Rusty and Judy know how to create them with perfect authenticity. Served on buttery buns, the chunks of lobster meat are plentiful and filling. Whether you want a snack size or a huge meal, Seaweeds will give you your fresh lobster fix!
Blazin Azn: 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!
Mama’s Food: Quesadillas, hot sandwiches, rice bowls, and homemade empanadas just like mama used to make. The empanadas are a staple item that you really can’t go wrong with, but we are also never going to turn down their chicken quesadillas. This truck is a veteran of the road and you’ll see why after eating there, you’ll be apart of Mama’s family forever!
Mr Potato Spread: Not a single person on this planet can turn down a massive loaded potato. Mr Potato Spread is fulfilling this great need in Jax with over the top potatoes and loaded fries that will carb load you right into heaven. Want it topped with broccoli and cheese? Go for it. Want it loaded down with meat? They’ve got you covered. Want it covered in CRAB BOIL?! Your dreams have come true.
Cuban Fire Grill: 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!
Le Petite Cheri Cupcakery: Who doesn’t love cupcakes? Le Petite Cheri raises the bar with seasonal flavor combinations and fresh toppings. Their desserts are rich and decadent, just how we like them! Also don’t miss their fresh made raspberry lemonade which is the perfect food truck rally treat! They’ve been experimenting with some new treats lately, so if churro sandwiches are on the menu ORDER 100 OF THEM!
Nitrogen Creamery: 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.
The Cupcake Truck: This truck has a refreshing twist on the traditional sweet treat! They’re truly a CUPcake–allowing you to choose two layers of cake and two layers of icing for your own personalization, or opt for one of owner Tiffany’s amazing recipes! If the Churro CUPcake is on the menu, you better get 12, but anything chocolatey is always a great bet with this truck as well!
Island Dream: Florida weather = Italian Ice everyday! Island Dream features creamy and unique Italian ice flavors and lemonades. The flavors change often, but they’re always refreshing and flavorful across the board. We’ve recently fallen head over heels with their Arnold Palmer flavor. Pro tip: their Oreo Funnel Fries are the perfect choice for anyone with a sweet tooth, they are delightful!
Julie’s Sweet Stuff: Cupcakes, brownies, bundt cakes, cookies, and more! Julie’s Sweet Stuff covers the spectrum on treats no matter what dessert you’re craving. The freshest ingredients wait for you too and are proudly “grandkid approved” from the owner’s own taste-testers. I’ve eaten more than my fair share and I always feel like I have a new favorite flavor each time!
Front Porch Kettle Corn: Start your food truck rally adventure here for an appetizer! Fresh made sweet and savory popcorn, mouth watering spicy pork rinds, and southern sweet tea. Take home a few containers to snack on later – you will thank us!
