Food trucks are one of my favorite things. I have fond memories of being in St. Louis in winter with Justin, standing in line for our favorite food trucks outside Barnes Jewish. It was below freezing, and there was at least a little snow on the ground. We had to eat huddled in his Ford Probe, which was on its last legs, but still spat out enough heat to get us by. Okay, heat was pretty much the only thing it had in the end. But I digress.
One thing that always makes me sad about Chattanooga is the food truck scene. Yeah, we have some food trucks, but bad laws surrounding them has kept the scene from really getting off the ground. Plus, sorry y’all, but Chattanooga has nothing on some of the food trucks I’ve eaten at across the country. I’m sure that would-be food truck entrepreneurs are bogged down by bureaucracy. But that’s a different post. What this post about is Food-O-Rama.
Brought to you by the people who made Food-o-Rama in Atlanta a thing, this food truck festival brought food trucks from around the Southeast to Coolidge Park. There was only one local truck, Bitler Bistro, after Grilled Cheese Emergency decided not to participate.
