For a long time we’ve not so fondly referred to Orange Park as the land of chain restaurants . In Orange Park you’ve basically got all of the big chain restaurants plsu some local Italian and pizza places. Creative food choices? Not so much. We’re excited to share with you that the first Orange Park food truck rally is coming up this Saturday March 29th at Bestbet Orange Park. That’s the Orange Park Greyhound racing track for those of you who were wondering, “what the heck is Bestbet?” . This Saturday Orange Park imports food creativity. We’ll be there to see Orange Park leave the foodie dark ages for the first time. Will you? Like we did for the March of the Food trucks rally we’ll give you our preview of the trucks planning to attend the event.
Chew Chew- These guys are a foodie’s dream. This truck tops our list of food trucks we haven’t tried and are dying to experience. The pictures on their facebook page make my mouth water. Chocolate banana bread French toast?!!!! Oh my!!! These guys are famous for their Korean BBQ short bread melt. It even made folio weekly’s 52 things you have to try. These guys might. Did I mention lobster corn dogs? Holy cow! Can this food truck rally hurry up and happen already?

Scrappy’s Mobile Kitchen- We can’t find anything on these guys. Scrappy’s contact us and we’ll get the word out about what you do.
Blue Pacific Taco-These guys have a really cool menu that runs the gambit and goes beyond just your average taco truck. Their motto is “Fresh ingredients, Globe tripping flavors” They really do offer a wide variety of flavors from around the world. From Carne Asada to spicy Jamaican jerk pork they’ve got it all. We tried their lumpia at the last food truck rally we attended and loved it! Also, read our Interview with Blue Pacific Taco.
What’s The Catch? – Seafood tacos are their primary focus. Check out our interview with What’s the catch for lots more info on what they offer.
Taste Buds Express- These guys have a massive number of taco options available. The thing that jumps out as us from their menu is the jumbo BBQ sweet potato. We’ve all seen a BBQ potato where they cover a potato in cheese and meat and sour cream. Those are usually pretty awesome. This one is a sweet potato with spiced cream cheese, sugar, butter, pulled pork, sharp cheddar, and sour cream. Check out their menu here: http://www.tastebudsexpress.com/menu.html
Baby’s Badass Burgers- These guys are the 3rd in a chain of burger truck franchises. They originated in Los Angeles. They make gourmet burgers that look mouthwateringly delicious. From The Original with their secret sauce to a turkey burger to a grilled cheese burger called the Bombshell Baby’s offers lots of options.
Fusion Food Truck- How about a chef that cooked for the Dalai Lama. Yep they’ve got one of those. A chef that won best indian chef in San Diego? Yep same chef. How did this awesome food artist end up on a food truck again? Fusion has it going on. Check out our Fusion interview for more on their chef and the cuisine they offer.

Trailer Pork BBQ-We can’t find anything on these guys online. We’re guessing they BBQ pork. Until we hear otherwise we’ll stick with this assumption. The only nugget of info we could find is they seem to be from middleburg. I grew up in Orange Park and you know what they say about Middleburg, “It’s where the men are men! And the women are too….” Hardy har har. In all seriousness though. Trailer pork contact us and we’ll edit this with some real info about your truck.
Grannie’s Chicken- Grannie’s is cookin’ up chicken! They offer fried chicken, liver, gizzards and all sorts of other southern comfort foods. Some say their signature item is their southern fries. Battered like the chicken then fried gives them a crunchy outside and a soft inside. Folks love ‘em! Check out their interview with Eat Drink Jax: http://eatdrinkjax.com/10-questions-about/grannies-chicken.html
Mister Softee- Ice cream cones, sundaes, Milkshakes. What’s not to love?
