Few trends have swept through our country’s culinary landscape with the same fervor as the food truck craze. Over the past handful of years, they’ve evolved from being thought of as a fad, to becoming a stronghold at farmer’s markets and weekend hotspots across the nation. This is especially true on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel.
In 2010, Fort Myers chef Scott Sopher decided to hang up his apron in stationary kitchens and take his talent on the road. His mobile operation, the Nosh Truck, became an overnight success and soon other venturing vendors started popping up across the county.
The best way to keep tabs on your favorite traveling tastes is through social media. Owners post updated schedules and impromptu stops throughout the week. Plus, if you’re traveling with a group, or need some grub delivered during a long meeting or event, almost every food truck in the area is available for appointments and catering.
With so many options to choose from during your stay on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel, finding the right truck can be tricky. So, we’re highlighting a few of our favorites that you simply must try:
The team that started it all is still trucking around Fort Myers and Naples. Chef Sopher’s culinary training comes through in unique takes on a wide variety of dishes like burgers, Bahn Mi and Belgian waffles topped with Nutella.
Fort Myers native Chad Morgan adds a personal touch to classic favorites like Cuban sandwiches and pulled pork with his homemade mojo and fajita marinades.
This family-run operation has received more than their fair share of awards for serving up unbelievably delicious, slow-cooked Carolina BBQ.
Fresh ingredients and bold flavors come standard in every Red Roc dish. They specialize in traditional Mexican cuisine with their own personal spin – try one of their mexi-dogs.
Today, our local food truck “fad” has proved itself to be anything but. Weekly events like Fort Myers Brewing Company’s “Thursday Food Truck Rallies” garner tons of loyal patrons and continue to grow in popularity. In fact, Downtown Fort Myers hosted its inaugural “Food Truck Wars” in April 2016. So it’s safe to say these delicious meals on wheels won’t be rolling away anytime soon, making them a great option for a meal in between meetings.
