Chase Down These 10 Mouthwatering Food Trucks In Cleveland
The hardest part of writing this list is that all the food trucks in Cleveland are good. It’s a business model that really only succeeds if the food is delicious, affordable, and appealing to everyone, everywhere, all the time. Once you’ve eaten at these places, you’ll hope to see them everywhere, whether you’re at the Flea with your family or on a boozy night out.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
10. Fire Truck Pizza Company
This food truck makes the list due to its sheer novelty. It's woodfire pizza made in and served from a retrofitted fire truck! This feels like validation for all those times we've claimed that our need for pizza was an emergency.
9. Smokin' Rock'n'Roll
What happens when two hard rockers combine their passions for rock'n'roll and good eats? Smokin' Rock'n'Roll! Big hair meets big food in this truck, which features meals such as the 'Fletwood Mac an Cheese' (pictured), and brisket to die for. This ain't for the faint hearted.
8. Swensons Food Truck
If you've had Swensons in Akron or Stow/Kent, then you know why it's on this list. Swensons burgers are just downright delicious, and the food truck means that they now self-deliver to Cleveland! Packed with grease and flavor, they have everything you could want from a burger.
7. Snow Bros Shavery
Craving ice cream but feeling a little adventurous? The Snow Bros have you covered! Two Korean-American brothers have brought this delicious Taiwanese loaded ice dessert to Cleveland. The selection of flavors includes taro and matcha, with toppings like fresh fruit, matcha cream, tapioca and mochi. Go for something simple or pile on the toppings.
5. The Proper Pig Smokehouse
Now with a permanent location in Lakewood, the Proper Pig Smokehouse has your BBQ cravings covered and then some. Piles of meat served with mounds of coleslaw and about half a loaf of bread to soak up the sauce. This is hardcore messy eating, perfect for eating outside, so make sure you grab a few extra napkins before you leave the truck.
6. Chill Pop Shop
Handmade artisan ice cream made with local organic ingredients that taste like a little bit of heaven? Yes, please! They have all your favorite flavors, like vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, plus some interesting ones like garlic, and avocado. They have a truck, cart, and regular pop-ups. Their pops are also stocked in some local stores, because it's impossible to get enough of them!
4. Betty's Bomb Ass Burgers
Voted the best food truck burgers in Cleveland! Some say the best burgers in Cleveland, but we won't open that can of worms here. A few of their burgers were awarded 1st place in the 2016 Midwest Burger Championship. Betty's burgers are mountains begging to be climbed. This truck is run by four women who know how to load a bun. Basically, this is one business where the name says it all!
3. Seti's Polish Boys
Don't let the Comic Sans fool you - there are some serious eats! Since 2001, they've been serving up the best Polish boys in the city, and have been featured by Michaeol Symon, Andrew Zimmern, and Rachael Ray. They claim to be the reason that the Polish Boy is Cleveland' signature sandwich, and we believe it!
2. Barrio Taco Truck
They've been serving up the best tacos in town for years, and now Barrio has doubled your tacopportunities. Quadrupled them, actually, with the addition of THREE food trucks! Go on a treasure hunt to find one, or hire it for your next big event.
1. Slyman's Tavern Food Truck
In case you hadn't heard, Slyman's Tavern has added a food truck to their list of venues. This means more meat more often from the most famous deli in Cleveland.
What are you going to eat on your next food truck hunt? Will you try something new, or go for an old favorite?
