8 Food Truck Stops in DFW
Food trucks seem to be everywhere across the Metroplex, but how do you know where your favorite will be or which one will be nearby for lunch tomorrow? We've got you covered with a roundup of some of the most popular food truck stops and the social media accounts so you'll know which truck will be there next.
1. Klyde Warren Park
Located over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway between Uptown and Downtown, Klyde Warren Park is well-known for its variety of food truck offerings. Last year, Zagat even provided a list of eight food items you shouldn’t miss while you’re at the park. Personally, we’re looking forward to trying an Italian Hippy and Ruthie’s Rolling Café. The Klyde Warren Park website has a daily list of what food trucks will be there and you can check their Twitter: @KlydeWarrenPark.
2. Dallas Arts District
The Dallas Arts District food truck court is at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Sammons Park on the northwest corner of Flora Street and Jack Evans between the Winspear Opera House and Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. There’s a schedule posted at the Dallas Arts District page or you can check Twitter: @dalartsdistrict.
3. Fort Worth Food Park
The Fort Worth Food Park is only open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2509 Weisenberger. But, the place has a following. You can check out its weekly calendar on its website or follow it on Twitter: @fwfoodpark.
4. Food Park @ Thistle Hill
The Food Park @ Thistle Hill gives food options for folks in the Medical District at 1509 Pennsylvania Ave in Fort Worth, just behind Thistle Hill. Diners can enjoy eating on the historic estate grounds, too. The schedule is posted on Historic Fort Worth’s website or can be found on Twitter: @FoodParkAtThistleHill.
5. Clear Fork Food Park
Another Fort Worth destination is the Clear Fork Food Park, open Wednesday through Sunday at 1541 Merrimac Cir, between University and the Trinity River, and not too far from Chisholm Trail Parkway. The website gives you the lowdown and what food trucks to expect and you can find them on Twitter: @ClearforkPark.
6. Austin Street Truck Stop
Denton’s own Austin Street Truck Stop, at 208 N Austin St, just a block east of the Downtown Denton square, behind East Side Social Club, has gotten kudos from the Wall Street Journal as a place to visit when you’re in North Texas. You can learn who’s making an appearance on the website or on Twitter: @AustinStTruckStop.
7. & 8. Coming Soon: Plano & Richardson Sites
The Richardson Food Truck Park isn’t here…yet. But, CultureMap reported that the new food park took its first step toward approval from the City and plans to open in late June at 522 Bishop Ave, just south of Arapaho Road off I-75, north of the City's Chinatown area. City Council has to give the nod later this month. There's already a Twitter account: @ richardsonfoodies.
Plano, too, is one step closer to getting a food truck park with the approval of a special use permit and preliminary site plan by the City's P&Z. The proposed food truck park and restaurant concept (called Hub Streat) should be at the corner of 14th Street and M Avenue, on a vacant lot east of downtown Plano, CultureMap reports. The proposal passed unanimously and will go before the Plano City Council for final approval soon.
