Food trucks are all over Fort Lauderdale – from the monthly ArtWalks to Food in Motion at Peter Feldman Park to the street out in front of any bar that doesn’t have a kitchen but reckons people might like tacos on a Friday night. Here are just a few favorites.

Mobstah Lobstah

Concept: Lobster from Massachusetts for the masses. Sample dish: Lobster mac and cheese. Sharp cheddar (cheddah?), Gruyere and Romano cheese with cavatappi pasta and Maine lobster.

Box of Chacos

Concept: Asian cuisine meets down-home American food, and then it all gets chucked in a taco. (Unless it doesn’t. There’s a non-taco section of menu, too.) Sample dish: Guangdong Shorty. Soy-braised short rib taco with avocado corn relish and special sauce.

Frankie Dogs Gourmet

Concept: Hot dogs, all fancied up. Sample dish: Pretty much any kind of hot dog – and the occasional taco – with any sort of creative combination on it. New dog concepts get created so often, we hesitate to recommend anything in particular, although old-fashioned Chicago goodness is on offer too.

Coffee Hub

Concept: Fresh coffee from the hardest-working barista in town. Edilson Cremonese’s three-wheeled Velopresso coffee trike is entirely pedal-powered – and the result is a tasty wake-me-up. Sample drink: Double-shot cortado.

Fat Boyz Barbecue

Concept: Barbecue. Proper slow-and-low, sauce-dripping, take-a-few-extra-napkins barbecue, just the way the good lord intended. Sample dish: The Baby Daddy. Boneless rib meat topped with smoked mac and cheese on a roll. Note: In addition to the popular food truck, Fat Boyz also has a restaurant in Deerfield Beach.
