In a lot of ways Dallas is a city of balance, with a foot in the past and a foot in the future; a foot steeped in Latin influence and a foot perched firmly on pure Americana. It's a dual spirit that pervades every aspect of living here, not to mention eating here. The Dallas food scene, and by extension the thriving Dallas food truck scene, mirrors the city's own balancing act, giving you Tex-Mex and beyond, line-blurring BBQ, and a diverse collection of other tastes delivered in big Texas portions, and even bigger attitude.

It's a city whose strong sense of identity is matched only by its willingness to try fresh things, and whose innovations are always grounded in tradition. Proven tastes meet bold new techniques, and familiar forms meet vibrant new flavors on a roster of Dallas food trucks that can truly please every Texan's tastebuds. Not to mention expand them. It's all a tricky balancing act, but that's exactly what comes natural here.

The Best Dallas Food Trucks

By all accounts, Easy Slider's not only risen to the top of the Dallas Fort Worth food truck scene, it's come to help define it. Over the years, a truck whose mission started as humbly as the sliders themselves slowly blossomed into a full-blown enterprise, climaxing in a permanent move to brick-and-mortar status. But the food truck itself remains wildly popular, providing grilled comfort and fiery imagination wherever it drives in DFW. It's the other trucks' job to rise up and meet 'em. And it's your job to visit & eat. Your job's easier.

In case you hadn't figured as much out for yourself, sliders are the thing onboard, and they come in varieties as strange as they are wonderful. Star of the show is the Sweet & Lowdown, which marries angus beef to bacon, goat cheese & strawberry jam to craft a mashup that tastes ten times its size. Equally eccentric offerings like the Nutty Pig (angus plus bacon plus lettuce, tomato and red onion plus, you know, creamy peanut butter, no big deal) follow, alongside a special slider that rotates monthly. All in all, the truck's a wide collection of tastes sized perfectly to let you sample the full tour.

BBQuestioning

Turns out grilled offerings are just the kind of thing that does well for food trucks in Dallas, go figure. The line between hearty comfort and authentic Texan BBQ is often a blurry one, with traditionally southern staples blending effortlessly into menus of broader scope. Specifically, Dallas BBQ may be a tough thing to define, but it goes without saying that it's all quite easy to eat.

  1. The Butcher's Son- Most curious of all, this is a Dallas food truck success story in reverse. What began as a promo truck for Johnsonville brats evolved into a must-try destination (wherever that destination drives), thanks to the bold twists founders Jon Wagner and Dain Pool gave to each dish. Sandwiches like the Santa Fe Sunset (Chipotle Mont. Jack Chicken Sausage, Black Bean Salsa, Fried Jalapenos, Tomato, Onion Avocado & Cilantro Aioli on a Brioche bun) and the Cajun Yankee (Naval Pastrami, Andouille Sausage, Caramelized Onions, Swiss & Spicy Mustard on a Brioche bun) get supported by a full menu of equally inventive sliders and quesadillas. It all feels like the kind of grass-roots enterprise any sponsor would be grateful to jump onboard for, which makes it all the odder that in this case, the sponsor arrived first. Turns out odd tastes delicious.
  2. Ruthie's Rolling Cafe - Ruthie's might have a more traditional story, but traditional's not a word that does their sandwiches justice. The spirit of Dallas BBQ still hovers above the grill, with BBQ brisket/cheddar on sourdough staple The Boss anchoring the menu. Tethered to it is a host of big Texas melts that hue hot, sweet and savory. Sometimes all at once.
  3. Not Just Q - This truck spells out a similar mission, right in the name - but delivers that Q in heartier, more traditional ways than you might expect. Classic brisket and pork sit alongside the likes of turkey and sausage, with sides like garlic green beans and smoked pit beans that expand the food truck's flavor profile. Finally, the option to craft tacos from your meat of choice & pair them with Mexican slaw injects some south of the border fusion.
  4. Rick's Smokehouse BBQ - The most traditional of all the offerings, Rick's takes classic Texas grit and fire and makes it all a lot more mobile. At least in theory - you won't make it far before you're forced to hunker down and give in. The brisket sandwich especially has made this truck a Texas legend in the making. Make sure to show up so you can write your own chapter.

Don't Mex With Texas

Tex-Mex is arguably one of the country's oldest fusion trends, pre-dating the term, even. And in Dallas, it remains as strong as ever. More than a trend, the food's one of the essential building blocks of city culture. Tex Mex food trucks occupy a large percentage of overall Dallas food trucks, crafting Latin traditions scattered into American comforts. But these days, Tex Mex is just the start of the Latin fusion experiment. Taco trucks are treating the tortilla like their own blank canvas - capable of being turned into countless works of diverse art.

  1. Azucar - a hidden gem amongst Dallas food trucks, Azucar demonstrates taco truck globalization as well as anyone else in town. Voted Best Under-The-Radar Tacos by Thrillist, their frybread-based Mayan tacos are closer to mini-sopas than anything else. Cuban quesadillas and fried plantain chips drag the Latin influence offshore, and smoky brisket bowls brings the world tour all the way home.
  2. So-Cal Tacos - possibly the boldest of the whole bunch, zooming past fusion to commit straight-up blasphemy. At least by Texas standards. It's a Dallas taco truck that culls its inspiration from California, blasting Mexican favorites with coastal inspiration, and making this state a little more golden with every stop. From the San Diego (panko-crusted fish with cabbage slaw and cilantro aioli) to the whipped-egg breakfast burrito, there's Cali comfort to spare. Which is more than can be said of the food itself - that has a way of disappearing rather quickly. The Gamechanger taco reigns as the star attraction onboard, and with honey-chipotle grilled salmon, feta cheese, and more cilantro aioli, it lives up to its name. Catch So-Cal Tacos & discover just how delicious blasphemy can taste.
  3. Rock and Roll Tacos - Family-owned and operated, Rock and Roll Tacos blasts your mouth with bold recipes that live up to their title, highlighted by insane creations like the Mac and Cheese Taco and the Chicken and Waffle Taco. Traditional recipes are also on hand for those who want to play it safe, along with a diverse set of veggie options.
  4. Taco Heads - With family recipes curated by a dynamic mother/daughter duo at its core, Taco Heads was launched to raise the bar, not just for Dallas specialty tacos, but for breakfast ones too. After a fateful Uber ride, Taco Heads' owner Sarah met investor Jacob, and together they turned the truck into a thriving brick-and-mortar. But the food truck remains in operation, able to bring all their innovation straight to your backyard.

Other Notable Dallas Food Trucks

  1. Bellatrino - Bellatrino delivers gourmet Neapolitan pizza right from the Texas-sized wood-burning oven onboard, fired up in 70 seconds. All greens are local and organic, while key other ingredients, from San Marzano tomatoes to the famed Double Zero Caputo flour, are imported straight from Italy.
  2. Dough Boy Donuts - Just as fresh-baked and twice as decadent is this dessert food truck which gives North Texas the kinds of doughnuts that exceed even your own daydreams. Flavors range from Sriracha candied-bacon with maple glaze to lemon zest glaze with crushed Skittles, ensuring your imagination will be as happy as your tastebuds.
  3. The Guava Tree Truck - Powered by Cuban family recipes, this is a local food truck making national news. Featured on Food Network's Great Food Truck Race, the Guava Tree has a knockout menu of sandwiches, bowls and croquettes as authentic as they are exquisite.
  4. Yim Yam Truck - This Thai-inspired truck keeps it simple - with easy ingredients and exotic tastes married together for food made mobile. Skewers, tacos and honey-glazed wings are all on hand to transport your mouth way, way over the border and back.
