Everyone in Los Angeles knows the best eats come from a truck, not a restaurant, and the best L.A. food trucks prove that. Open night and day, these popular food trucks travel from location to location across Southern California serving up a selection of food on the go. From the Kogi BBQ truck that started the food truck craze to others that specialize in ethnic food or sweets, it's easy to find good eats sure to please nearly everyone.
While L.A. food trucks often simply show up at scheduled locations, many food truck enthusiasts enjoy the hunt of tracking down their favorite truck in the city. Luckily for these foodies, the food trucks use the internet and social media to communicate their locations and specials. (If you can't make it out to one of these trucks, that doesn't mean you can't experience Epic Meal Time.)
In addition to posting their menus, schedules, and planned locations on their official websites, many food trucks will inform their fans of other news, such as specials, using their Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts. Also, a bunch of secondary websites strictly devoted to tracking Los Angeles food trucks provide food truck maps, locators, or trackers.
