Food Trucks

Nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains is the town of Arcadia, part of the greater Los Angeles metro area. The community is known for its beautiful homes and community of greenspace, so it's not unusual to see people spending plenty of time outside. This is a perfect environment for a food truck, with lots of hungry passers-by.

Arcadia also has some wonderful landmarks, including the Santa Anita Park and the LA County Arboretum, people who like picnicking outdoors have beautiful options. While you're on your way to one of these destinations or simply taking a break from work, don't miss out on a tasty treat from one of Arcadia's local food trucks.
