Food on trucks is without a doubt the greatest thing since slices on bread. While many a lunch break may have been spent trying to track down your favorite meals on wheels, Truckeroo gathers in one place some of the best food trucks roaming D.C.’s roads for a monthly celebration in mobile dining.
Last Friday saw the first Truckeroo of the season with more than 20 food trucks and a hungry swarm crowding the Bullpen festival area outside Nationals Stadium. Crowds played corn hole, listened to live music and, of course, stuffed themselves silly.
Gourmet on the go
Traditionally, the closer association food has with a vehicle (delivery car, hotdog cart, ice cream truck) the less appetizing that meal will be. D.C. food trucks, though, rise above this food rule, and we all eat better for it. From pulled pork BBQ to lobster po’ boy sandwiches, the Truckeroo vendors repping the D.C. food truck scene have every mouth-watering menu item you can think up, made with genuine ingredients and served generously.
The longest line of the day by far belonged to TaKorean. Their city famous Korean BBQ tacos, peppered with a Mexican twist, had customers cuing around the block for a taste.

Truckeroo is one gorge-fest you will not want to miss. The next one is set for June 14, and they will continue on a monthly basis through October. Never thought I’d say this, but “Truck Yeah”.
