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

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

    • Justin,

      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!

    • 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

  4. Looking for a foodtruck that is not currently operating– need to rent or lease one for a year or so !!! want to set up in the oil fields in North Dakota–anyone have any info please email or call 760-908-6430
    Thank you for any help you can give
    Dick Dodd

  5. 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

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

  7. 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…

  8. 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)

  9. I saw foodfarm on Convoy the other day.

  10. 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!

    • I would love to stop by where is the location Cindy

  11. What is your contact info please?

  12. We are looking for food trucks to frequent our area at the north end of Towne Centre Drive. Even if it’s once a week.

  13. Where is the location Laura

  14. 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.

    • We did a catering event for an office building down the street from your school. They loved us and want us back every week , we are located in Chula Vista find us on facebook at Charlie’s Asian Crepes and Rolling Ribs or email me for additional info

  15. Keep me informed:-)!

  16. Dear All,

  17. Looking for a healthy breakfast/lunch truck or vendor to participate in one-day food court in Escondido on May 12. Big crowds (70,000) expected for all-day world class bike race. Food court area right on race route, close to start/finish line.

  21. 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..

  22. If any of you great food trucks find yourself with no where to park today 4/20/13 between 10am and 5:30pm there is a BIG EVENT competition at Solid Rock Climbing Gym in Poway today. 100+ people in attendance who will be hungry! Address is 13026 Stowe Drive. Poway California 92064

  23. Please send updates for food trucks in San Diego area. Planning a food truck business soon.

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

    • 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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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!

    • 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…..

      • 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.

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

  29. 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?
