Festival Food Truck Rundown
Plaza Festival is well known for showcasing art, live music, and interactive children’s activities-but do you know the real gem of Festival? Food. For the last 18 years, the Plaza Festival has brought in an array of delicious, diverse, and mouth-watering food options for patrons of all tastes and palates to enjoy. This year, there will be TEN food truck options guaranteed to satisfy even the pickiest taste buds. I am going to give you the Festival food truck rundown so that you, and your stomach, are sure to be satisfied.
Fan of dehydrated meats? I thought so. Jerky.com will be at Festival this year offering a selection of jerky flavors with several meat options. Not a jerky lover? Don’t worry; they will also be offering deep fried peanuts and licorice. Make sure to follow Jerky.com on Facebook and Instagram for a preview of all the jerky goodness.
2. Holey Rollers
Who doesn’t love donuts and coffee? I can’t think of a better combination. Oh wait, yes I can-vegan donuts and coffee. Holey Rollers offers a large selection of gourmet, vegan donuts. Holey Rollers offers traditional and well-loved donut flavors like Vanilla Cake and Sprinkles. Want to try something a little more Instagram worthy? They’ve got you covered with their Spicy Mexican Chocolate donut (chocolate donut, cayenne pepper, and ghost pepper salt) or the Banana Walnut Sea Salt (a banana donut with chocolate ganache, walnuts, and sea salt). Make sure when you’re taking a photo of your vegan and gluten free S’mores donut, that you use a filter that does the baked goods justice (please, not Valencia). Want to sneak a peek at some of Holey Roller’s offerings before the 30th? Make sure to Like them on Facebook and follow them on Instagram.
3. Sizzle N Spice
Sizzle N Spice is Oklahoma’s first ever Tandoori style food truck-and it doesn’t disappoint. With offerings such as Chicken Tika Masala, Curry and Rice Bowls, and Lamb Gyros you know your appetite will be satisfied. Check them out on Facebook for a look at the spicy, savory, and delicious Indian-style goodness that is Sizzle N Spice.
4. The Loaded Bowl
Since the #vegan trend doesn’t seem to have an expiration date, you know Festival would provide food truck options for the more health conscious (and hashtag heavy) patrons. The Loaded Bowl offers conscious comfort food that is sure to satisfy vegans and non-vegans alike. Loaded Nachos, Down Home Bowl, and Cashew Mac N Cheese are just some of the options that can be found at The Loaded Bowl. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram, so that you can tag them when you post your #vegan #healthy selfie with one of their delicious Quinoa Bowls.
5. Yum Yum Bites
What do Vietnamese short ribs, lobster balls, and Boba tea have in common? They are all offered at Yum Yum Bites. Yum Yum Bites offers a wide selection of Vietnamese cuisine and selection of Boba teas and juices. Make sure to follow them on Facebook.
6. Back Door BBQ
You can’t go wrong with good ole’ BBQ. Back Door BBQ will be slinging brisket sandwiches with all the fixins, including coleslaw and potato salad. Make sure to stop by the beer tent at Festival and pair your BBQ sandwich with a nice, cold IPA. Back Door BBQ’s rich and hearty brisket and BBQ sandwiches will transport you from 16th St. to a backyard get-together. Make sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter for all the BBQ goodness you can handle.
7. Let’s Do Greek
I have no plan (or funds) to visit Greece anytime soon, but Let’s Do Greek will provide me with a little taste of Athens. Falafel, hummus, gyros, and baklava are just a few of the Greek treats that will be available for purchase at Festival. Check them out on Facebook and Twitter. Mamma Mia!
9. C’est Si Bon
C’est Si Bon is one of the best, if not the number one, Cajun food truck in Oklahoma City. C’est Si Bon specializes in catfish, po’boys, and Southern cooking. If you visit this food truck, make sure you have an empty stomach, as you will want to try a little bit of everything. C’est Si Bon translates to “It’s so good” and this establishment has earned its namesake with their top notch Cajun cuisine. Make sure to follow them on Facebook.
10. El Reno Onion Burgers
I am a vegetarian, and even I know El Reno Onion Burgers is good. If you haven’t tried El Reno Onion Burgers, where have you been? I know where you will be-you will be eating one of their delicious burgers at Festival. Go and Like them on Facebook to keep up with the trucks (and burgers) whereabouts.
Now that I have your stomach growling, I hope that you will enjoy (and taste) all that Festival has to offer this year. Just a pro tip-make sure to drink plenty of water, wear loose pants, and take some Pepcid before delving into the food truck frenzy that is Festival. I look forward to seeing (and eating) everything that the 19th Annual Plaza Festival has to offer-see y’all there!
