Hot Rods, Art Cars, and Food Trucks
The biggest news on four wheels in Louisville isn’t the Ford Truck, it’s the Food Truck. Here’s a partial list of the rapidly multiplying mobile eateries:
- Busta Grill: More an itinerant sausage cart than a truck, but it can be found at First and Washington Streets.
- El Rumbon’s Cuban food truck can be found at suburban auto dealerships.
- Holy Mole — a taco truck — will hit the circuit soon.
- Las Gorditas trailer stationed at the Eastland Shopping Center in Buechel serves authentic Mexican fare.
- Lil Cheezers: Offering gourmet grilled-cheese sandwiches.
- Morels Food Truck: This vegan-fare business began on Kickstarter and has a handy-dandy truck-tracker on its site.
- MozzaPi: Serving a modern take on Napoletana wood-fired pizza, prepared on site in a mobile oven.
- San Diego Sandwich Works: A California mobile sandwich café in a turquoise bus that brings “a taste of sunshine to your day.”
