Food Trucks in San Jose

The capital of Silicon Valley is where big business goes to thrive. And in San Jose, food trucks are big business. Forward-thinking entrepreneurs aren’t just limited to tech - many of the nation’s next-great chefs are testing out delicious ideas on the streets here, for some of the nation’s most influential mouths. But traditional mobile chefs are also in high supply - serving the very best versions of old favorites.

One great example is El Diferente Loncheria, whose orange sauce alone is worth the drive for countless enthusiasts passing by town. Their authentic Mexican street eats are an easy crowd favorite, and will make any party in San Jose an instant classic.

Another crowd-pleaser is the Eat on Monday Truck, which contrary to its namesake, serves delicious fare all week. Signature items include their moist and tender pork belly steamed buns, their crispy UFC (ultimate fried chicken sandwich), and their Bacon Blue Burger, a classic beef patty topped with candied bacon and bleu cheese. For those with a sweet and salty tooth, get your fix and some wonderful waffle dishes at the Waffle Amore truck. This truck has everything you'll need for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or late-night... as long as you love waffles.

If you’re searching for lots of great mobile chefs in one place - you can almost always find trucks gathered in a designated food truck pod. Popular lots include Palo Alto Square, Geng Road, and the Foothill Research Center.
