60 Food Trucks Meet Up Tonight in Miami

August 25th, 2011 · No Comments

If you haven’t gotten in on the food truck mania, tonight (Aug. 26)  would be a good day to start. Trucks from as far away as Orlando and Tampa, and with foods as diverse as churros, grilled cheese sandwiches, dim sum, nachos, and Asian brussels sprouts will gather in Tamiami Park in Miami at dusk to sell out of their windows.

The food truck phenomenon is corraled mostly in Miami, since that city hasn’t put bans on mobile food vendors as major cities in Broward and Palm Beach have done.

Track the trucks on your iPhone

The event marks the launch of the iPhone app the Food Truck Tracker that tracks the trucks. Previously, it’s been the purview of social media to find the truckers, a labor intensive trial to find 20 or 30 individual vendors.

One of the successful trucks, Burger Beast, worked with a Miami company to develop the app that maps out their locales.
