From cupcakes to chicken and waffles, crepes to pocket pies, just about anything your taste buds desire is being served out of food trucks, culinary carts or other restaurants on wheels. You'll find them on random street corners at lunch, camped out on the edge of local farmers markets each week and parked strategically between the nightclub and your car at 2 a.m. Face it, resistance is futile.
Here are a few of our favorites.
Harbor's Cajun Station
Looking for something to satisfy your hankering for Cajun food? Keep your eye out for Harbor's Cajun Station!
