Students will go wherever they can find food.

New food trucks have been added by UH Dining Services and started serving students on the first day of school. These new food trucks include Golden Grill HTX, which specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches; Flip n’ Patties, which focuses on Filipino street food and burgers; and Eatsie Boys, whose occupants work out of an “intergalactic” food truck. Dessert food trucks What’s Up Cupcake, Custom Confections and Texas Blizzard have also been added to the menu.

“With their focus on local and handcrafted food, the food trucks fit seamlessly into the fabric of our campus and are offering what the campus community is looking for,” said UH Dining Services Marketing Manager Amber Arguijo.

The food trucks will serve on rotation throughout the year, and according to a press release by UH Dining Services were added “to search into new flavor profiles.” Each truck had to run through an interview process with UH Dining Services before being chosen.

Some of last year’s favorites, including Bernie’s Burger Bus and Third Coast Steak Sandwiches, are not on the menu this year.

Specific food truck specials can be found at the UH Dining Services website.
