When people historically think of food trucks, they think of simple food that’s just “okay.” The only reason you’d go is because one happens to come by work every once in a while, and it’s convenient. Well, let us be the first to tell you this is no longer the case! Over the past couple of years, there has been a revolution of sorts in the food industry, and food trucks are leading the way! Gone are the days of serving simple burgers and hot dogs; many food trucks are serving up culinary masterpieces that rival top restaurants anywhere, while still providing the convenience and personal customer service you’ve come to expect from mobile eateries.
Food trucks have also become a staple of many events throughout the Valley over the past couple of years and have even become part of the attraction! If you’re looking to check out some of the hottest food trucks in the Phoenix area, here are three great local events to check out as soon as possible.
On the first Friday of every month, something incredible happens to downtown Phoenix: It transforms from the jewel of the southwest into an art and cultural wonderland! The Roosevelt Row Arts District welcome artists from all walks of life, vendors, and citizens alike to downtown for a plethora of different galleries, exhibits, and much more. One of the best parts about the event is that many of the Valley’s best and most renowned food trucks are spread out throughout the entire event and offer a wide variety of eats to enjoy! If you’re looking for a night out on the town to experience some culture while eating some delicious food truck eats, then First Fridays are perfect for you!
