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

Happy Thursday! We're one day closer to Fourth of July weekend—celebrate early by visiting some food trucks around L'Enfant and the State Department/West End area. For some trucks, such as DC Empanadas, it's their last day before the holiday weekend. Or, show off your patriotism to Sweet Fleet by being the first person at each stop to correctly answer the following question: "What do the 13 red and white stripes on the American Flag represent?" You'll get a free cupcake!
