Whether you’re vacationing in the St. Louis area, visiting the City Garden or an area festival or you’re in need of a quick lunch; food trucks provide meals on the spot. Popular television shows like “Man vs. Food” and “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” have turned the spotlight on food trucks to share how these portable food service mobiles feed a local hunger. Discover the top food trucks in St. Louis that come to you, to the front of your building or to the corner in the general vicinity to serve delicious fare. Since the trucks are a mobile diner and don’t have a brick and mortar store, most food trucks are active on social networking sites, like Twitter and Facebook, to announce where they will be parked for the day, cancellations due to weather conditions and what’s on their menus.
