Dallas Food Trucks

I am definitely a fan of the food truck trend.  The last few times I visited family in Dallas, I noticed the food truck festival at Floyd Warren Park. Apparently they park there weekly. On my most recent visit I got to visit the park and see what the Dallas Food trucks are all about ( I will post on Houston food trucks eventually) Two things that a long line at a food truck tells me, a) it’s popular because people are flocking b) the food is likely fresh because the line isn’t moving quickly enough to keep it short.
