Nice, I just added your @sdfoodtrucks to my Twitter list. I will keep checking your weekly updates. Great interview on PBS today.


Rick July 20, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Does anyone know how I can get a traditional (non-gourmet) food truck to visit the college I work for in the evenings? Our college students seem to have smaller budgets.


Sugey May 23, 2014 at 10:32 am

What campus are you talking about? What times would work best to work in the evenings?


Justin August 9, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I’m looking for a food truck to come by our campus in the evenings around 7:30pm M-F. We have about 800 students on campus and they get hungry. The food has to be inexpensive like fries, tacos, burgers, grilled cheese, etc. Anyone know of anybody available?


FoodTrailer January 3, 2013 at 11:49 am


I have a food trailer and I’ve been trying to get in contact with you with NO LUCK….can you please contact me?? or give me your contact info….Thanks!


Lance March 22, 2014 at 12:46 pm

Hey Justin. Cheesy Amigos would love to try it out a few times. Please get in contact with us too. We have a great price point for students


Dick Dodd October 4, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Lynn Giles October 8, 2012 at 8:39 am

Does anyone know if there are Coffee and Pastry food trucks? I am working a big event and would like to know if there are any of those type of trucks or something close to it. Thanks


Danny October 17, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Any ideas on how we can lure some trucks downtown for lunch? We’re feeling pretty left out down here!


Alan October 26, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Now that the Encinitas meet has been shutdown – how about having one next to Holiday Park in Carlsbad? If anyone is interested please let me know and I can sound out with the City on what would be needed…


steve November 3, 2012 at 8:52 am

Was going through the list and think some of the trucks are no longer around. Just the Tip, Limmes, Ms. Sushi, Pig Rig, OB Seafood, Our Daily, SD Street Eats, Streetside, Sushi Ninjas. Also why is swieners & casanova fish tacos on the list- they aren’t even food trucks or even trailers (they are booths)


mig0 December 8, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I saw foodfarm on Convoy the other day.


Cindy December 13, 2012 at 4:19 pm

I’m off of Palomar Airport Road on the north side of Palomar Oaks Way, first parking lot on the left, and I would love to patronize any trucks that come by. There are 3 buildings here and there used to be trucks here but the complex lost a lot of tenants in the recession. People are moving back in, though, and if anyone came by, I’m sure I’m not the only one who would be stoked! There’s nothing to eat for miles!


Carla January 11, 2013 at 7:36 am

I would love to stop by where is the location Cindy


Gerald December 17, 2012 at 1:46 pm

What is your contact info please?


Laura January 9, 2013 at 12:34 pm

Kim February 25, 2013 at 8:44 pm

I live up in Temecula and am looking for foodtrucks that want to help with a band fundraiser at one of our local high schools. Does anyone have fundraising opportunities and how do they work? I’m in the very beginning stages.


vanessa March 1, 2013 at 11:38 am

I need a cupcake truck or desert truck for an event at an elemenatry school!…lost touch with last truck. Event is March 14th, thursday at 6-8. vista, ca


Rick March 1, 2013 at 2:12 pm

San Diego’s ITT Technical Institute just relocated to National City, CA. We have a great big parking lot at the moment and I’m researching the possibility of organizing a monthly food truck gathering for both our school students and staff as well as for the general public. We are located on a busy street (Mile of Cars Way) right off the I-5 freeway and one block west of the famous Mile of Cars. Any information or interest in setting this up would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello I am interrested in starting a food truck, but I don’t know what license and permits I will need, or what order to get them in. Do I buy the truck first and then apply for necc. permits, or are there things I can do before purchasin a truck. Do I need a ficticious business name first. Please help email me at, or hopefully i can find my way back to this page..

Wasn’t there a pizza truck or something that was made out of an old fire truck? Can someone give me the name/website?


Jennifer S. July 19, 2013 at 10:28 pm

Dang Bros. Pizza. We met those guys on our street when they were booking a segment on The Chew. So good and super down to earth. Dang Bros. Pizza is on Facebook.


Amber Simonds June 13, 2013 at 9:12 am

I work at a company that has a little over 100 employees. We currently have a “roach coach” that comes everyday at 9:30 but recently they have sold spoiled food and spoiled drinks. My boss wants me to find a new food truck to come in because of this. The only problem is I have no idea how to go about it. Ideally it would be something not so expensive that has drinks and stuff like fries, burgers, tacos, salads ect.


Jim August 8, 2013 at 9:15 am

I work at a machine shop at the end of bond ave. Off the lake jennings exit there are a bunch of shops out here. We need a lunch truck that servers good fresh food to come up this cul-de-sac, 9am or 11:30am.


Annie August 15, 2013 at 12:29 pm

I am being pulled in many directions like most first time food truck owners. I love California but it is lucrative to stay and operate here? what is the cost of a license etc? as opposed to Portland where small business is welcome and costs are lower? Would like to hear from people who have experienced on or the other and get a true evaluation. Thanks!


Al January 6, 2014 at 9:54 am

Please contact me and I will explain the details to you. However, if you have a San Diego Health Department License. ……You can operate anywhere in the world !!!and that is a fact…..


Austin January 15, 2014 at 12:37 pm

Hello, Al.

Very similar to Annie’s situation, I am trying to do my due diligence and better understand the food truck universe. I, too, love California but blogs and articles have been suggesting elsewhere for a better start. I am interested in learning more about this Health Department License and I would appreciate any of the details you have shared with Annie. Please feel free to contact me. Thank you, in advance, for your time.


chargertom August 21, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Will there be food trucks at the SDSU football games at Qualcomm Stadium this year?


John fain September 5, 2013 at 7:53 am

We are looking for a truck to come visit our work. There are 4 companies here ranging from 20 to over 100 employees each. The location is an alley between Hancock st and Kurtz st in Point Loma (92110). The cross street is Sherman st.
There is one truck that comes mon-fri 9am and 11am for 15 min each. But the quality of the food is terrible. As a result most people go out to eat lunch. any takers?


Eric September 16, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Im really in need of a food truck to come through the area I work. We had one coming through a couple months ago. But stopped all of a sudden. It’s a big industrial park with a lot of other businesses in need of a lunch truck also. And also right next to the san Miguel fire department. In spring valley. off of Austin street. Please contact me and let me know. Thank you again.


Nick September 17, 2013 at 12:22 pm

Hello Food Truck folks,

I have an idea for a food truck. It is still very undeveloped as I have many unanswered questions. If an owner of a food truck has time to chat with me please send me an email at

I am young and ambitious. I know I could run my own truck but I need some mentoring for specifics and regulations. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for and advice.
