Truck Stops: Where to Find Lunch on Wheels

Every morning, we’ll let you know where the area’s food trucks are rolling.

Washington has food trucks in all corners of the region today, with a good crew at L'Enfant for government workers as well as a strong showing in downtown DC. Northern Virginia is crawling with mobile vendors—and that's where we'd like to go for Doug the Food Dude's new lobster-roll wrap. Watch out, Red Hook Lobster, you've got competition. A map and a list of truck hot spots after the jump.
