Check out these awesome Connecticut food trucks now:
1. Food Extrovert
Based in New Haven, this truck is on a mission to serve healthy, locally sourced food. Fast doesn't have to mean greasy, as this eclectic menu includes fish tacos and chicken park sliders.
2. Rolling Dough Express
Though its home base is Norwalk, this truck travels the state spreading the joys of thin crust pizza. But their extensive pub menu also includes hot wings, potato skins and more! They're one of the best when it comes to booking for a party.
You can thank Bridgeport for this traveling barbecue gem. The genius behind this truck was fed up with the limited options in the area and the Brisket & Mac 'n Cheese Sandwich was born. There's no way you'll leave this truck hungry and the flavors are explosive.
Mainly stationed in West Hartford, this traveling act includes beer and donuts, a combination you rarely find always wanted. Their decked out treats include candy toppings and can be enjoyed as breakfast or dessert. There are no limits!
5. Melly P's
Have you ever had apples and fig jam on a sandwich? It's downright delicious! This sandwich shop on wheels was born in Branford but serves the whole tri-state area. You'll love the hard-pressed paninis and perfectly crisped fries.
6. Taco Pacifico
You'll have to head towards Madison to enjoy this one. Home to some of the most amazing Mexican cuisine in the state, this place definitely deserves some permanent roots. Tacos, burritos, tostadas- you name it! They have it and it tastes amazing.
This Glastonbury based truck uses fresh ingredients to create classic Italian dishes that locals love. They also provide full-service catering. Come try the meatballs and you'll instantly be in love.
8. Spuds Your Way
Hamden clearly knows a thing or two about baked potatoes. When they come loaded like this, they're the whole meal. They also have some pretty delicious chicken burgers, but the spuds are the main attraction.
Thank you Stamford! This is one of the most unique trucks around, serving up American classics with an Asian Pacific Islander twist. Tacos, burgers, and amazingly good fries make this a must try food truck.
10. Chief Brody's Banh Mi
Located in and around New Haven, this was the first food truck in the area. It serves up French-Vietnamese sandwiches made with gourmet ingredients. You're sure to find their unique flavor combinations delectable. I know I do!
