There is something so fun about ordering a meal from a food truck. It is a cool experience that allows you to try amazing food on the go. I’ve had food truck meals that have easily trumped top restaurant food.
If you live in Houston, you know the city boasts some of the best restaurants in the United States. Did you also know that Houston is home to numerous highly regarded food trucks? Haute Wheels Houston, The Food Truck Festival, will give you the opportunity to try food from 37 food trucks including:
