San Diego's Gourmet Food Truck Revolution

Restaurants on Wheels!

These quirky eateries are all the rage across the country and, with year-round perfect weather that almost demands dining al fresco, San Diego offers up a bevy of delicious gourmet options on the food truck front.

Something to Savor Around Every Corner

Wherever you find yourself in San Diego, you're bound to be near a rolling food emporium dishing up haute cuisine on four wheels. The truck websites offer weekly schedules, however the best way find out where these mobile restaurants are serving upscale cuisine at a curb near you is to follow them on either Twitter or Facebook.

Devilicious Food Truck

Social: Twitter, Facebook
Kristina and Dyann are the ladies in the driver's seat and behind the window of Devilicious, a food truck that serves up "food so good, it's bad." Menu items include a dark beer-braised bratwurst with house-made fresh sauerkraut and spicy mustard; butter-poached lobster grilled cheese made with fontina, mozzarella, caramelized onions and oven roasted roma tomato; shrimp poboy; and a blackened prime rib with shredded lettuce, red onion, horseradish sour cream on French roll. Accessorize your sandwich with truffled parmesan fries.

MIHO Gastrotruck

Social: Twitter, Facebook
MIHO Gastrotruck uses only fresh, local, and thoughtfully-sourced ingredients to create hand-crafted street food that is affordable, convenient, and delicious. The menu changes daily with past items including a salad of roasted local baby carrots, toasted almonds, candied orange peel and local arugula in a ginger garlic vinaigrette; a grass fed beef burger with hand-made Caesar aioli, Parmesan, local romaine and shaved red onion on a brioche bun; and hand-made grilled flatbread, with almond pesto, baby purple artichoke, local trumpet mushroom, d'anjou pear and Parmesan. On the side, munch on Belgian-style fries made from hand-cut Kennebec potatoes with hand-made curry ketchup.

Super Q Food Truck

Social: Twitter, Facebook
Super Q Food Truck cooks-up hickory smoked BBQ with elements of North Carolina, Texas and St. Louis-style flavors to the streets of San Diego. Choose from sandwiches and sliders featuring brisket, pulled pork topped with slaw or pulled chicken with caramelized onions. On the fries side, indulge in BBQ asada fries topped with your choice of smoked meat or keep it simple with crispy sweet potato fries.

Tabe BBQ

Social: Twitter
Tabe BBQ also focuses on street food that blends Asian cuisine with a classic Mexican flair. Available in taco, burrito or bowl form, menu items include char-grilled chicken glazed in homemade teriyaki sauce; grilled pork or beef marinated for 24 hours in a traditional, spicy Korean marinade; and tender filet of cod, beer battered and fried then topped with Maui salsa and an Asian-inspired cream sauce.

Marisco's German Taco Truck #3

Marisco's German Taco Truck #3 is the no-frills answer to your fish taco dreams. This authentic San Diego food truck serves simple Mexican seafood dishes in a no-frills atmosphere sans attitude. Order up the $1 fish taco, a value at any price, the tacos gobernador featuring succulent sauteed shrimp topped with melted cheese or any of the light, fresh ceviches that sing with the flavors of the sea. You won't find these guys online but they usually park in Normal Heights on El Cajon Boulevard between 35th Street and Wilson Avenue.
