Philadelphia, PA: Weekly Lunch Truck Lineup is a Fun Campus Dining

By The Navy Yard Contributor |


The spring season of The Navy Yard’s Lunch Truck Lineup (#TNYLTL) program kicked off this spring, with food trucks serving everything from burgers to pizza to soul food to tacos every Thursday, 11 AM to 2 PM or until sell out. The lunchtime destination at the Marine Parade Grounds includes an ever-changing rotation of the city’s best food trucks, including dessert trucks. These dessert trucks bring a variety of sweets, including cupcakes, ice cream, popsicles, and even ice cream sandwiches made of cookies!


The popular lunch spot, called a “hot venue” by Philadelphia Inquirer Restaurant Critic Craig Laban and a “food truck hub” by Michael Klein, editor/producer of, continues to grow  – additional trucks have been added to provide more variety (mac and cheese, crabcakes, and Korean rice bowls, to name a few).  Every week, hundreds of Navy Yard employees flock to the park with hungry stomachs to enjoy what Philly’s favorite food trucks have invented.

As we head into the summer season, keep your eye out on social media for the weekly Lineup announcement to see when your favorite trucks will be back, along with some new faces!
