Top Food Trucks in Newark

Put on those elastic waist pants; loosen those belts, summertime is here and the food trucks are rolling into town. It may be called street food, but in the know can't wait for their next fix. So get in line, Newark's trucks are dishing out authentic flavors to go, budget-friendly bites...a sure cure for the appetite blues. From cupcakes to Cambodian food, sliders to the "Soup Nazi", grab some grub, find a perch in the park and share the love. These mobile restaurants are always on the move - follow them on Twitter to for their latest location, changes in schedules happen, and those Pescado tacos you've been dreaming about may be just around the corner.  It's worth every bite.
