It seems like only yesterday I was writing to tell you about the delicious food truck options in Boulder and when I did a search on the site, I discovered to my surprise that it’s been three whole years since I wrote about them. That’s an eternity in food truck years! I mean Verde has evolved into a brick-and-mortar restaurant since then for crying out loud.
I simply cannot let this travesty stand given my love for food trucks and my desire, nay, duty, to keep the people of Boulder informed on the brightest stars in the food truck galaxy.
This food truck boasts made-from-scratch French cuisine that’s both delicious and easy to eat off a paper plate while standing. No easy feat, my friend! Their Croque Madame is purportedly out of this world and they have both dairy- and gluten-free options. Plus, when are you ever going to have another opportunity to order Escargot from a food truck?
There’s actually quite a bit of history with this company. The first iteration of the RollinGreens food truck goes way back to 1980, when now Head Chef Ryan “Ko” Cunningham’s parents ran the truck. They retired it to focus on other careers, but their son picked it back up in 2011 and began to rebuild the brand. The food truck is most famous for their “millet tots,” which are made with an organic whole grain, rather than potatoes and people swear by these tasty morsels (you can buy them at Whole Foods too)! Another cool feature isn’t in their truck, but on their website, where they’ve posted the recipes for all of their signature menu items.
Please. Don’t act surprised I’m putting another taco truck on this list. Tacos are life! I believe that carnitas deserve to be their own food group. My favorite Spanish word is “queso.” I bleed salsa. Tacos Del Norte is for all you fellow taco lovers that feel Tuesday shouldn’t be the only day for tacos. Some claim that this unassuming little taco cart has the best, most authentic tacos in Boulder.
Crepes, you guys, crepes from a truck! This is why I love food trucks. Owners are constantly coming up with new twists on traditional cuisine to serve it to the masses from a truck. Are these guys the first truck to serve crepes? Probably not, but it still pleases me grately (see what I did there?). Formerly known as CKrepes, the truck changed its name, but not its food. The number of crepes available on both the sweet and savory sides is pretty impressive for a food truck.
Yes, yes, yes. I know this isn’t a food truck, but I feel like I would be remiss not to mention this great bar/venue/massive patio that hosts between six and seven food trucks a day (three for lunch and three or four for dinner). There are only so many food trucks I can cover in this little article here, but the Rayback Collective can offer you breadth of food truck variety that a blog could never quite meet. Go there, grab a beer and get in line for the food truck that most tickles your fancy for the day. Then go back the next day and do it all over again!
