When they’re not driving around town and looking for parking to feed hungry customers, the owners of local food trucks are busy lobbying for online votes. They’re vying for $10,000 and a chance to appear on the Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race” in an online competition for “America’s favorite” food truck.
Right now, Sacramento’s own Mini Burger is holding down the No. 4 spot, while Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen has garnered enough votes to land the No. 9 spot. Voting will continue through Sept. 12, and you can cast your votes here.
Speaking of food trucks, look for a special mobile food gathering on Sept. 15 at the State Capitol with 10 trucks from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This food truck fiesta is being held in honor of Mexican Independence Day, and while the line-up of vendors has yet to be announced, you can bet your last burrito that plenty of tacos will be in the mix. Stay tuned for more information.
