Truck Stops: Where to Find Lunch on Wheels

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

By: Kate Nerenberg

A little rain never drove any Washington food trucks away. The biggest clusters of mobile vendors are in Metro Center and around L'Enfant Plaza—where you'll find one of Washington's best spring treats: soft-shell crabs. They're coming in tacos from Sabor'a Street. Sounds intriguing. But our biggest news of the day is our live chat with Red Hook Lobster truck owner Doug Povich at 2 PM. Want to know how to steam a lobster? How much lobster meat is in each roll? How you can open a lobster-roll truck? Ask him anything lobster-related; submit all your questions here.
