Come watch the premiere trucks battle it out for bragging rights! Below are the participating trucks, make sure to follow the event page on the Jax Food Truck Food Court Facebook page for regular updates!
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.
Chew Chew: Lobster corndogs anyone? Chew Chew has fused fine dining with food trucking seamlessly. With one of the best food truck menus around, Chew Chew has something for everyone! Try a carnitas burrito, a caprese grilled cheese, General Tso’s tacos, or BBQ sliders with fried jalapenos! This truck is a longtime favorite of Jacksonville foodies. Plus, they were recently named one of the top 50 food trucks in the United States, so you have to celebrate with them!
Danilo’s Famous Lumpia: It’s called famous for a reason. These Filipino treats are cooked fresh to order every time and are stuffed with beef, vegetables, and spices. Their pancit is phenomenal, and also try their dessert turron too – sweet banana lumpia with your choice of toppings. They’ve even recently started offering their lumpia frozen, so check out their ordering options!
Blue Pacific Tacos: Award winning tacos including the unique ribeye bulgogi tacos, sriracha beef, and Malaysian satay. Blue Pacific’s bold flavors can’t be found elsewhere! The owner Izzy has travelled the world to hone his culinary skills and brings globe trippin’ flavors to Jacksonville. We think tacos are the perfect food truck rally food, don’t you?
Latin Soul Grille: This truck’s fusion of Latin, Caribbean, Spanish, and BBQ makes for an irresistible menu. Their tender, flavorful chicken thigh tacos and delicious wings are addictions of ours. Their speciality empanadas are made with just as much care! Plus, we think their customer service is some of the best in town. It’s hard not to fall in love with Latin Soul.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Cajun Cravins 2 Go: Another newcomer to Jacksonville, Cajun Cravins 2 Go is actually a seasoned food truck veteran that moved here to serve! They’ve got all your authentic cajun favorites including stellar red beans and rice and gumbo, but they’re also making and smoking all their own sausages in house! The flavors are bold at Cajun Cravins, we know our cajun fans will be thrilled to have a taste of home!
What’s Smokin:How does slow smoked BBQ pulled pork in a gyro sound? This BBQ fusion truck brings the unexpected to your notions of traditional BBQ and gyros are just the beginning! Their BBQ egg rolls have quickly become a favorite of our food truck community. Oh, did we happen to mention they have cheesy hash brown casserole as a side item? #heaven!
Chubby Burrito: One of the most popular Mexican trucks in Jacksonville, Chubby Burrito specializes in authentic Mexican style street food. All food is freshly prepared daily and focuses on simple, authentic flavors. The carne asada street tacos and chicken tinga burritos are can’t miss orders. Oh, and did we mention there are churros?!
Mother Truckin Pizza: This Jax favorite serves jumbo pizza slices with fresh toppings and tons of melt in your mouth cheese. They also offer oven fired subs, soft pretzels, and delicious cheesy bread. Their deluxe slice and Italian sausage sub can’t be beat! Want a treat? Try their toasted ravioli too!
Balu’s Surf Shack: Welcome this newcomer to our Jax Food Truck Family! This eclectic mix on all things Coastal is serving up amazing fish tacos with a twist, like monkfish and calamari, healthy chicken tacos, quesadillas, cabbage wraps, smoothies, homemade healthy ice cream and more! Balu’s was a favorite in Virginia and lucky for us they moved down to Jax, so we want to give them a huge first rally welcome! This is an excellent vegetarian and vegan friendly option!
Skyline Chicken and Waffles: Hello hot wings, we love you! New to the road but not new to cooking the best wings in Jax, this truck is the mobile version of the Avenues Mall favorite. Enjoy perfectly cooked wings in a variety of flavors, fried shrimp, waffles, fried fish, and more! These bold hot flavors will have you addicted and ready to enjoy this truck weekly!
Joining the Takeover for Sweet Treats:
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.
Cold Calf Creamery: Cold Calf has been named best ice cream in St Augustine for 5 years running. Evidenced by their huge flavor variety and massive portions, we understand why! Plus, it’s Florida, the weather is always conducive to a creamy, decadent sweet treat! An owner and crowd favorite flavor is Cookie Monster : vanilla ice cream with cookie dough and cookies and cream! Also don’t miss their Fruit Chillers which blend sweet sorbet with your soda of choice!
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 whoopie pies or cheesecake are on the menu ORDER 100 OF THEM!
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!
Key Lime Mousse: Based in St Augustine, this highly award winning gourmet mousse will have you in heaven! Branded as a healthy dessert treat, Key Lime Mousse comes in several flavors aside from your comfort food key lime. Enjoy their expresso and chocolate flavored mousse too!
