Food trucks seem to be moving into Dallas, TX lately with more force than the previous years. Austin has always been the lucky city – food trucks traveling, but also permanently parked in lots, just begging to be approached by locals and tourists alike.
Thankfully, Texas has its very own Food Truck Festival and I was able to stop by for one of their two long day visits to Dallas. Check out a few of my (very overcast, iPhone) images and make sure you read up on this week’s Random Hero for details on one of my new favorites, Easy Slider truck!
Darius, an Easy Slider slinger, has been manning the truck with some of his other co-workers every time I’ve visited. Darius is super rad — always kind to the patrons and easily keeps them calm when sliders start to run out. Mega shout out to him!
The security guards seemed anxious about getting their sliders in time to return to their shift, but Darius gifted them some home-made candy bars and all was well in the world of pavement and fast food.
The Durty Laundry truck, although not serving food, was in the mix with their walk-in closet, live DJ, and table set up with merchandise!
I really wanted to hit up more than one truck, but with the long lines and no friend to tag-team lines with, I stayed true to the Easy Slider crew and grabbed three Baby Bella sliders. Mmm…
My eyes were bigger than my stomach. The flavor was bigger than my imagination. My stomach was bigger than my fist. All in all, it was a damned good journey and I was more than happy enough to stand in line for an hour for these little guys.
