What’s not to love about a gathering of food trucks? The soaring popularity of this twist on “drive-thru dining” has sparked countless culinary entrepreneurs to give us an ever-growing menu of unbeatable eats!

Raleigh is lucky to have more than 50 food trucks assemble every month, from May through October. The Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo spans 11 city blocks on Fayetteville Street and draws more than 1,000 hungry visitors to each event. The last one of the season takes place on Sunday, October 12, from noon to 6 p.m. From the All American Food Truck to Zekos 2 Go, you’ll be able to satisfy your appetite—no matter what you’re craving—and quench your thirst, too.

Living the Good Life in Raleigh

As a Raleigh homebuilder, the team here at Royal Oaks Homes meets a lot of people who ask, “What’s so great about living in Raleigh?” We smile before launching into a litany of reasons to live here. The people, of course, are very friendly, but we can also brag about the climate, the cost of living, the quality of education, the low unemployment, and the endless list of things to do. The Food Truck Rodeo is just another one of the many special events and festivals that add to the quality of life here in Raleigh.

On the food front, we should also let you know that Raleigh barbeque is among the best in the country. And the craft beer scene here sets up the perfect pairing for anything BBQ. The Carolina hot dog is a masterpiece of a meal.

The Vendors
Here are some food trucks to check out:

  • Bo’s Kitchen is a 5-star favorite on Yelp for its incredible Korean fare.
  • Sarge’s Chef on Wheels describes its food as “chop soul”, with specialties like spicy shrimp and grits and shrimp po-boy.
  • Porchetta produces slow-roasted, Italian-style pork sandwiches.
  • American Meltdown is a fan favorite with gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches that take comfort food to a new level.
  • Save some room for Chirba Chirba dumplings, Not Just Icing’s cupcakes, Stuft’s gourmet stuffed baked potatoes, and frozen treats from a variety of vendors.

For burgers and barbeque, exquisite ethnic foods, and desserts that are worthy of a day-long diet cheat, come to Raleigh and bring your appetite on Sunday, October 12. See you there!
