The Bay Area has a raging food truck culture! And not just in San Francisco. Throughout the Bay, gourmet food trucks are popping up on street corners in every neighborhood. Roach coaches are a thing of the past. These suburban street food vendors create affordable, inventive, and delicious food, and stay in touch using social media. So once you hop online, you can hop on over and dig in.

Doc’s of the Bay (Emeryville)

What’s not to like about “American Comfort Food on a Bun”? Try the classic burger, black bean burger, original red bell ketchup, and a seasonally rotating selection of specialty sandwiches. Save a few bucks and grab a “lunch box”, a ready-to-go burger and fries meal, complete with an Arnold Palmer to wash it all down.

Five Ten Burger (Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley)

Five Ten refers to the East Bay’s area code (510), a nod to the neighborhoods Five Ten Burger is committed to serving. Check in with Facebook or Twitter for locations and a rough weekly menu. After all, if a truffled grilled cheese sandwich is being served up right around the block, you’ll want to get on that.

MoGo BBQ (South Bay Wide)

Unlike restaurants, food trucks have the flexibility to let their creativity shine. Which is how MoGo BBQ came up with their delicious Korean burritos. MoGo comes to you when you want street food the most, like lunch near your office, or even better, you can even find them outside of the South Bay’s Dance Clubs till 2am.

Cabana Dave’s (Livermore, Pleasanton and Dublin)

Cabana Dave has traveled throughout the Caribbean and New Orleans and developed a passion for all types of food found around the Gulf of Mexico. Cajun, Caribbean and Authentic Southern & Texas BBQ are Cabana Dave’s specialties, and they’re all on wheel, coming straight to you, or your special event.
Brian’s Fave: the jerk chicken wrap.

Edgewood Eats (Every Monday Night in Palo Alto)

Every Monday night, food trucks from all over the South Bay gather in this abandoned lot and serve up 5-star cuisine at 2-star prices. Arrive with an empty stomach and a taste for adventure, and try a bit of everything. From Indian burritos to Butterscotch pudding cups, you’ll become a street food convert… if you aren’t already one.
