Well, I had a chance to visit one, in fact, 15 at our local Food Truck Bazaar last night!
The event was being held from 7pm-12am in a parking lot at a local mall. I was excited and hungry so we made sure to get there just after 7pm. First stop was the Yum Yum Cupcake Truck.

I heard they sell out quickly, because they do not bake cupcakes in the their truck, they only sell them from the truck. Plus who only buys one cupcake? In fact, I bought six cupcakes - all different flavors! The vanilla ended up being my favorite.

Andy headed to the BBQ truck.
He got a cheese-burger topped with BBQ pork and macaroni and cheese, called The Big Daddy. It was pretty good.
Cate headed for the Travelling Gourmet truck for pork lettuce wraps. These were a hit!
I spotted this little orange truck from afar and knew I had to get in line.
I have been wanting chicken and waffles for months. The menu was mouth watering and decided I needed the savory chicken and waffles with country gravy and the berry waffle with fruit and whipped cream. I found my way to the back of the line.

During the wait, my son Patrick called and when he found out how long I had been waiting in line for chicken and waffles, he didn't seem to share my passion for the food trucks because he told me they sell chicken and waffles at IHOP everyday.
Definitely NOT the same as waffles from Melissa's Chicken and Waffles Food Truck in a mall parking lot - I am sure!!
Nearing 10pm we got our waffles, the berry one came out first. Mmmmm. They had run out of silverware, but we made do.
The chicken one took a little longer, as each one was made to order! We were so relieved to actually get it that we dug right in and didn't even take a photo. Imagine the one above with yummy friend chicken pieces on it and that's what it looked like.
The waffles were great and even though the wait was super long, I would go to her truck again. I was told this was her first night so I am sure service will improve.I loved the Food Truck experience and am looking forward to the next event. I have 11 more trucks to try!!
Have you ever eaten from a Food Truck? What did you get?
