ACADIANA GRILLED CHEESE COMPANY 288-2457
Monday-Friday: Lunch; Special events
This truck is serving up gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and other inventive sandwiches. Try the brisket and bacon sandwich or the Electric Turkey — Muenster and pepper jack cheeses melted with turkey pastrami and topped with an avocado cream and spinach make boring bread sing. Look for this truck at local concerts, festivals and food truck roundups. Catering and private events are also available from the little red truck that's big on flavor.
BUSTER'S FROZEN CUSTARD 288-7011
Buster's Frozen Custard is a freshly made rich and creamy premium ice cream. What is frozen custard? It started in the early 1900s at Coney Island, and traditionally contains 10 percent butterfat and egg yolk, creating richer flavors. Buster's Custard offers traditional flavors like vanilla and chocolate with an array of toppings and also rotating fruit flavors. If you catch Buster's on a special day, ask for an old-fashioned root beer float. Look for the friendly face of Buster the dog on the side of the truck rolling to a curb near you.
CHEF GREGORY 356-3867
Tuesday-Saturday: Lunch Daily: Dinner; Special events
Chef Gregory's award-winning pulled pork makes a great sandwich or, even better, served on his Rock Star nachos. The chef serves his mesquite-cooked pulled pork over tortilla chips topped with cheddar cheese, jalapeños, tomatoes and sour cream. Be on the look out for this truck at the Horse Farm Market on Saturdays next time you're shopping at the local farmers market.
FREETOWN FRIES 967-1016
Wednesday-Saturday: Lunch, Special events
Fresh, hand cut french fries are the base of all the dishes on the Freetown Fries truck. Take the spud beyond a simple dip of ketchup. Try one of the specialty dipping sauces like the rosemary garlic mayo or go bold with a Pooyie Fry — fries covered in beef roast gravy, white crumbly cheese, green onions and a dash of cayenne. A fall addition is Louisiana sweet potato fries that pair nicely with any Freetown Fries dish creation.
HIBACHI HERO 258-2581
Tuesday-Saturday: Lunch, Special events
In the mood for hibachi flavors but don't have time to dine in? Track down Hibachi Hero and order up a dish of hibachi grilled meats and veggies, fried rice, and a side of the signature Hero Sauce. If you're looking for something more hand-held, try the hibachi wrap that combines all the flavors of the combo platter inside a wrap. Look for the bright red truck serving up restaurant quality hibachi in a neighborhood near you.
LA StrEAT 412-4909
LA StrEAT brings high style restaurant-quality meals that are totally mobile right to where you are to cut the hassle out of lunch away from the office. The menu adds inventive flavors to burgers like the B&B burger that's a half pound patty topped with a sunny side up egg, thick cut bacon, sliced ham and Hollandaise sauce on a toasted bun. Think Egg Benedict meets burger. The Cajun grilled cheese packs a Louisiana punch with two slices of bread stuffed with boudin and cheese grilled to perfection.
MAD LUANN'S 366-1271
Monday-Saturday: Breakfast and Lunch; Special events
When you mix a mobile kitchen with Cajun flavors and whip up breakfast, you get a not-so-typical breakfast biscuit like Mad LuAnn's boudin biscuit with fig preserves and smoked bacon or a venison sausage, egg and cheese biscuit. At lunch, try the Cajun cochon sliders — smoked pork, pickled onions and coleslaw for a small bite packing lots of flavor.
MAMMA T'S 280-5607

MUNCHIES LUNCHBOX EXPRESS 316-3900
This truck offers specialty foods not usually found outside of a restaurant. Munchies signature dish is the fried rib and a crowd-favorite is the Catfish on the Bayou — angel hair pasta mixed with shrimp, sausage and tasso with a cream sauce and panko-crusted catfish. Call Munchies about their catering offerings and they will pull the truck to your event to serve up any hungry crowd.
PELON'S MEXICAN HOT DOGS 224-0525
Tuesday-Saturday: Lunch and Dinner; Special events
Pelon's brings flair to a hot dog that is way beyond mustard and relish — these dogs are turkey franks wrapped in hardwood-smoked bacon and served on a bun with custom toppings. Try the fajita dog that's the signature dog covered with grilled onions, mixed peppers, shredded jack cheese and Mexican sour cream served in a tortilla. If you prefer your dog with a little less fiesta, get the Gringo which is Pelon's take on a classic chili cheese dog.
RICE KINGS 944-9328
Monday-Saturday: Lunch; Special events
If you spot this bright orange truck that cooks Asian, stop and treat yourself to some authentic flavors like the Korean bulgogi tacos or the kimchi fries. This food truck even serves sushi handmade on the truck — consider Rice Kings the solution to satisfying that sushi craving when on the go.
VIVA LA WAFFLE 393-0177
Tuesday-Saturday: Lunch; Special events
The original food truck of Lafayette, Collin Cormier's Viva la Waffle serves up craft sandwiches and daily specials on truck-made waffles.
