DWF, TX: DFood Truck Winter Festivals in Dallas

by George Lewis | D Magazine 

Randy Wolken and Dain Pool, the operators behind Gandolfo’s NY Deli and The Butcher’s Son, have engineered a coalition of Food Trucks called “DFW Street Foods.” Their intent is to be able to provide a more unifying voice among the many new business owners. Besides advancing their political agenda in order to make it easier for food trucks to operate, they have put together several food truck events in Dallas.

Truckin’ Through The Holidays Food Truck Rally

The first coming up is “Truckin Through The Holidays Food Truck Rally” at 3309 McKinney in Uptown Dallas on Saturday, December 10.  That’s the parking lot across from Primo’s.  They’ll start at 4pm and trucks include Ruthie’s Rolling CafeThe Butcher’s Son, and Gandolfo’s NY Deli, and The CupCakin Machine.

Big D NYE at Victory Park

Multiple food trucks, including City Street Grille,NammiSsahmGandolfo’s, and The Butcher’s Son will be in attendance directly in the venue for Big D NYE.  Multiple bands, fireworks, and the food trucks will entertain and feed the thousands of party-goers. The food trucks will be serving from about 6pm until well after midnight.  In the past, there has been only one vendor, but now the 5 trucks will provide a nice variety for those out on the streets.

More Events, More Venues

Going forward, the DFW Street Foods coalition will be organizing more events at the Primo’s parking lot location.  They’ve also secured use of the old Hard Rock Cafe location for events over the next few months.  Stay tuned for more details.
