Drewski's Food Truck

Mobile food vendors will kick off a weekly food truck festival today in the parking lot of Tognotti’s Auto World on Fulton and El Camino avenues in the Arden Arcade area.

The event will feature burgers, grilled sandwiches, tacos and other fare from Mini Burger, Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen, Mama Kim’s and Chando’s Tacos.

The festival will run each Thursday at different locations, with vendors being members of the newly formed Sacramento Food Truck Alliance. The alliance wants to make Sacramento more food-truck friendly and promote changes to city ordinances. Currently, mobile food vendors must move after 30 minutes and shut down at sundown.

The alliance will stress a self-policing policy, including not parking within a half-block of a restaurant.

The weekly festival generally will be outside Sacramento city limits where food trucks don’t have the same restrictions.
