Ya can’t beat the meat in the street!

DC Food Trucks offers a real-time google map featuring the location and latest tweet from many of DC's favorite food trucks. It also features a comprehensive list of every mobile street vendor in The District!

Food trucks in DC are far more than your typical Manhattan falafel, kabob or even Belgian waffle stand. Washington DC street vendors come fully equipped with mobile kitchens, a bevy of street food options and health code standards far beyond the conventional food truck norms.

Fueled by Washington’s need for quick lunch options, DC food trucks travel from spot to spot offering Washingtonians amazing street food like tarts, lobster rolls, Korean barbeque, falafel, sweet & savory pies, tacos and much more!

How do you know where they are?

The best part about DC food trucks is their social media savvy!

Every day street food vendors in Washington DC update their Facebook and Twitter profiles with their whereabouts, menu options, whether or not something has sold out, closing time, tomorrow’s hours, etc.

They pretty much roll up where the action is and watch as the lines form. You can find DC food trucks everywhere from North Capital to K Street, down to GW and Virginia Ave and into NoVA!

We found all these trucks just in McPherson Square!
