Are you going? The first Inland Empire Food Truck Festival takes place Saturday at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario. More than 50 food trucks will take over the arena’s parking lot all day, providing a sort of smorgasbord on wheels. Some from this truck, some from that truck…
Customers pay a fee of $10 to enter the festival and then can purchase items at whichever trucks they like.
I have my ticket (bought at the box office at the earlybird rate of $8). Will I see you there?
Food trucks, as you may know, are a hot trend around the streets of L.A. We don’t see many of them in our end of L.A. County and they’re currently banned (other than for special occasions like this) in San Bernardino County, making this a welcome event.
I’m no expert on food truck culture, so I can’t say with any certainty if the list is heavy or light on the good trucks, but the list certainly has some evocative names. Kogi isn’t among them, but Coolhaus, Bacon Mania, the Grilled Cheese Truck, Nom Nom and Frysmith are names I’ve heard, and the fact that they’re coming bodes well.
Anyone more versed in food trucks want to rate the lineup or recommend trucks/items?
