I don’t understand the food truck craze. There are food trucks sprinkled throughout the Financial District with long lines of people in suits waiting to order and then waiting for their food. If you’re going to wait in the windy corridors of San Francisco without a place to sit, you’d expect maybe a discount? But no, food truck fare is just as expensive and often even pricier than the nearby deli where I can have a seat, wait for my friends, and be shielded by the cold indoors. I also get to use metal versus plastic utensils.
I don’t understand the food truck appeal. Yet there are crowds of people flocking every single food truck. There are the insanely popular Off the Grid food truck events that happen all over the Bay Area including Civic Center and Fort Mason. I saw on their website that they also go to my hometown shopping center Alameda South Shore!
Thoughts? Which food trucks do you feel are worth it?
