TACOS EL SOL

Among the Spokane area's numerous authentic taco joints, Tacos El Sol sells its cow tongue and chorizo tacos and burritos to highfalutin' businessmen on lunch break and keeps selling all the way to drunken bar-goers after 2 am. 401 W. Sprague (main truck location) • facebook.com/tacoselsol

BEN & JERRY'S

Yes, you've heard of it before. You can buy it at the grocery store, but the Ben & Jerry's food truck offers delicious and creative flavors in a fun outdoor setting. River Park Square (store locale) • benjerry.com/riverparksquare

THE SCOOP

A retro mint-green truck offers amazing, locally made Brain Freeze ice cream, with eclectic flavors like avocado, lavender and lemon and their own house-made liquid nitrogen ice cream. 1001 W. 25th (store location) • thescoopspokane.com

THE BISTRO BOX

It moved from Seattle to take a crack at the Spokane market (awesome) and offers crazy, amazing Kobe beef sliders and hand-cut French fries, along with many other sandwich and salad options. facebook.com/bistrobox

COUPLE OF CHEFS

Up on the Couple of Chefs menu are a number of high-end burgers and wraps and something called the NC-17 Grilled Cheese (smoked Gouda, bacon and avocado tomato salsa on sourdough bread). coupleofchefscatering.com

DAWN OF THE DONUT

Zombies and humans alike hit up this spot when they're in the mood for donuts with names like Brains, Slayer and Bruce Campbell. 3402 N. Division (store location) • dawnofthedonut.com

JAMAICAN JERK PAN

As the only place in Spokane that serves Jamaican food, head to this truck for that fix of red beans and rice, curried chicken and cabbage salad. All side dishes are vegan; all spices are imported from Jamaica. 4th and Cannon (main truck location) • facebook.com/thejamaicanjerkpan

3 NINJAS

One of the newest taco trucks in town (though it also serves salads and pastas), 3 Ninjas specializes in gussied-up gourmet flavors in its tacos, cradled in chipotle tortillas. facebook.com/mobilespokane

TOBY'S BBQ

If brisket, ribs, chicken thighs and pulled pork excite and delight you, you'll want to check out this truck with some of the best homemade smoked meats around. tobysbbq.com

GARLIC MOBILE

From garlic green beans to chicken salad, nearly every item on the White House Grill's Garlic Mobile contains garlic; this Greek cuisine is best for those not worried about their next makeout session. 23403 E. Mission, Liberty Lake (main truck location) • whitehousegrill.com

BIG RED'S

Looking for a Chicago beef sandwich or a Philly cheesesteak? How about a cream cheese dog or a pepper steak? For the past few years, Big Red's has had you covered when it comes to all of your meaty Chicago cuisine needs. Southeast corner of Sunset and Government Way (main mobile location) • Check out their facebook

BEET IT UP MOBILE JUICE BAR

This isn't just a plain old smoothie truck. Instead, each fresh juice or smoothie is made with organic fruits, roots and vegetables. Tea, coffee and salads also are offered. facebook.com/beetitupmobilejuicebar

TACOS TUMBRAS

While it has two restaurant locations, downtown Spokane and Spokane Valley, the truck is where it all began for Tacos Tumbras. Every time you eat tacos here, it's almost as if you're transported to Mexico. Hayford Rd. and Hwy 2, Airway Heights (main truck location) • Check out their facebook

SHAMELESS SAUSAGES

There's nothing shameful about enjoying a good weenie. Serving locally made sausages with fresh toppings (like pineapple, bacon and caramelized onions), you'll probably want more than one hot dog from Shameless Sausages. 601 W. Riverside (main truck location) • shamelesssausages.com

THE BIG YELLOW MOBILE KITCHEN

Not surprisingly, this truck is big and yellow and offers fast, restaurant-quality American cuisine including Philly cheesesteaks, elk burgers and buffalo burgers. 1212 N. 4th St., Coeur d’Alene (main truck location) • thebigyellowmobilekitchen.com

FATBURGER

While it has restaurants in North Spokane and Airway Heights, Fatburger often takes to the road to hawk its oversized, juicy burger goodness. Don't forget to order a side of crispy onion rings. 1706 W. Francis and 100 N. Hayford Rd., Airway Heights (store locations) • fatburger.com


TRUCK NOTES

While many of these trucks take credit/debit cards, assume nothing and always show up with cash.

Always check a truck's website, Twitter account, or call to see which area they're in that day, as some are open only on weekends or for special events. With a mobile business, everything is subject to change.

Some of these businesses also offer catering.

Be patient; waiting for your food is half the fun.
