Truck Stops: Where to Find Lunch on Wheels

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

By: Melissa Romero

The food trucks are all over Washington today, from Doug the Food Dude at Tysons Corner to the Big Cheese up in Tenleytown. Your best bet in finding a food truck may be in Farragut Square. Personally, we'd make the trip to Franklin Square for El Floridano's chilled cucumber-and-red-grape soup—sounds like the perfect way to fight off this humidity. Choices, choices. 

Farragut Square (17th and I sts., NW), where you'll find Fry Captain, Saucalito from Sâuçá, Pi Truck, DC Slices (20th and L sts., NW), Sidewalk Sweets (third stop), and Benethiopia from Fojol Bros.

where you'll find El Floridano, PORC, and Tasty Kabob.
