Since 2010, food trucks have been a staple of the Baton Rouge culinary scene. It began with a snow ball truck and social media, and has blossomed into a full-fledged food truck revolution. On any given weekday, the capital city streets are dotted with mobile vendors dishing up delicious food-on-wheels. Looking for your favorite? Follow them on Facebook or Twitter to see where they're posted up. And every Wednesday, they gather for the BR Wroundup; a collection of Baton Rouge's food trucks in one location. Some nights there's even live local music.
Here's a run down of a few of Baton Rouge's Food Trucks:
Taco de Paco: Find chopped steak, pulled pork, black bean and chicken tacos served in flour or corn tortillas. Plus, they offer a variety of specials. Taco de Paco also serves dinner several times a week. Find them on Twitter.
Fresh Junkie: The rapid-fire line on this truck dishes up healthful salads and wraps with lightning fast speed! Premium, organic, natural, and most importantly FRESH ingredients topped with handmade dressings make for delicious fuel for your body. Find them on Twitter and Facebook. See how they make their most popular wraps on Youtube.
Chicken Shack Express: The Delpit family has been serving fried chicken for more than 75 years in Baton Rouge and now they've taken it to the streets. This is fried chicken as it was meant to be, served with their signature Shack Balls or a vegetables prepared southern style, of course. Find them on Twitter.
Pullin' Pork: This husband and wife team offers a variety of pork and brisket dishes including sandwiches, tacos and nachos. Try the homemade sides and banana pudding to round out your meal. Find them on Twitter.
