Houston, the 4th most populous city in the country, serves as the largest cultural hub in Texas. This immense port city is home to several energy giants, providing thousands of jobs that draw in folks from all around the world. Because of this, Houston's food culture includes richly diverse restaurants and food trucks that serve authentic cuisine from across the globe.

The Best Houston Food Trucks

With fleets of food trucks serving the streets, local vendors are driven to craft menus that stand out among the competition. Fortunately, this leads to Houston having one of the most distinguished food truck scenes in the world. A few of the crowd favorites include Bernie's Burger Bus for their wholesome, made-from scratch take on classic-style burgers, Nom Mi Street for their delicious Vietnamese fusion sandwiches, tacos, gyros, and more, Happy Hour Food, which serves the perfect grub for when you need to refuel from a night on the town, and Kurbside Eatz, which offers delicious Asian-inspired comfort food creations, such as Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls, and much more.

Museum District & Hermann Park

Bayou City boasts one of the most celebrated museum districts in the world, with over twenty galleries, museums, community centers, etc, that attract thousands of visitors from all walks of life, on a daily basis. As folks wander through these establishments, allowing their minds and souls to feast upon an influx of new knowledge eventually their appetites are piqued as well. Thankfully, several of the city's best food trucks are conveniently parked close by, such as Offbeat Eatz, The Cuban Spot, and Cousins Maine Lobster, serving scrumptious offerings that are simply best enjoyed picnic-style on the soft grass of Hermann Park.

Rice Village

The faculty of Rice University (one of the most esteemed universities in the country, let alone Texas) understands that the ticket to a high GPA is a belly full of deliciousness. This is why they insist that their auspicious students (and any other hungry folks in the area) nourish themselves with the tasty provisions from Houston's favorite food trucks, including the Italian/Mexican dishes from BanBan's Cuisine, the gourmet fusion offerings of Foreign Policy, and mouthwatering American classics from Bubba's Texas Burger Shack.

Looking for Houston Taco Trucks?

It is a fact that if you are in Texas for long enough (10-15 minutes or so), you will inevitably begin to crave tacos. The good news is that you can always count on Houston food trucks to hit the spot. True to the eclectic offerings of international cuisine throughout the city, there are plenty of flavorful fusion taco options for you to choose from; Miss Patty's Wagon is where you will find amazing cajun seafood tacos and Coreanos is where Houstonians love to get their Mexican-Korean street food fix. Fusion Taco serves all sorts of flavors of the world, from the Chicken Tikka Masala Taco to the Tempura Shrimp to the Chicken-Fried Oyster Taco with buttermilk ranch. If you're seeking straight up traditional tacos with corn tortillas, scrumptious marinated meats, and fresh homemade salsas, Tacos Tierra Caliente serves some of the best in H-Town. Finally, Tacos Ole brings bold flavor to every order, making internationally-inspired tacos that are Texas-sized in taste.

Craving Something Cool?

Food trucks that provide frozen treats are always a huge hit in Houston where it can get notoriously hot and humid. Mama's House of Ice serves as everyone's go-to for wonderfully soft and fluffy New Orleans-style sno cones. Chocolate Wasted is famous for its gourmet handcrafted artisan ice cream, ice pops, and soda floats. Lulu's Shaved Ice Shack is a neighborhood favorite, not only for its flavorful shaved ice but for the signature fruit licorice straw that comes with every treat too. Sweetride! Houston Dessert Truck offers refreshing and delicious treats that everyone can enjoy, with a menu that features plenty of gluten-free and dairy-free options.
