By Contributor  |  Visit Oceanside


Food Trucks are all the craze these days. Gourmet food truck fever is sweeping the urban foodie scene in full force and now it is making its way to our very own Oceanside, California. Here are a few of our Favorite Food Trucks that frequent the Oceanside Area. (If you have a favorite food truck that isn’t up here tell us about it!)

Mad Mantis Food Truck


Eclectic, delicious and surprisingly healthy food from a mobile kitchen. Follow Mad Mantis Food Truck on twitter or facebook, find them and come try some delicious food! Note that they are also available for catering services.

“Not your ordinary food truck! Great and delicious combinations of some of the greatest entrees. I got the mahi-mahi fish tacos, not your ordinary since it has delicious cranberry sauce, avo, and all the reg rest! Can’t wait to try something else next! Added bonus: The take credit cards!” Yelp Review: Tiffany G.

The Sushi Bus


Entrepreneurial sushi chefs selling take-out bento boxes out of the back of an old ice cream truck might not ring your bell. However, The Sushi Bus is offering up fresh California cuisine at local breweries, private parties, or business events. Track them down by following The Sushi Bus on facebook or twitter.

“You would have a hard time finding better sushi in a brick & mortar restaurant, especially at their price points!  The flavor of their sauces and quality of the fish are top notch.” Yelp Review: Michael S.


Red Oven Pizza


Red Oven Pizza is a la vera pizza Napoletana mobile pizzeria where every ingredient is prepared in the wood oven. Ask them about lunch service, catering, weddings, school fundraisers, or other public events. Then, don’t forget to follow them on facebook and twittertoo!

“A recent find, but I’m already head over heels. These guys haul around a real brick oven on the back of their truck. They set up this thing every time they touch down in an office park or brewery. That’s real love for pizza, guys. Real love.” Yelp Review: Lindsay L.
