The food truck craze has matured from a frenzy to functional insanity. It’s easy to forget that a short decade ago, trailer eateries were generic convenience-stores-on-wheels that appeared outside the office at lunchtime. 

Now it seems like an endless quest to outdo last week’s newcomer. The low cost to start up made everyone a restauranteur, ready to execute a unique vision of Texas-sized culinary flair. Some Texans even choose where to live to be close to their favorite trailer.

One thing is for sure — no one scoffs at the food truck anymore. While the boom has died down, enthusiasm for parking-lot eateries remains strong thanks to these Top 5 Dallas Food Trucks with dangerously close apartment complexes:

Waffle Wagon

Waffles Without Limits

Did you want your BLT served on whole wheat or a waffle? Just kidding … there’s no whole wheat at the waffle wagon. Forget breakfast — it’s waffles every day, every dish, from your sandwich to your salad. It’s not exactly low-carb, but after putting back a few at East Side Social Club, these fluffy confections are just what you want to have within a few staggering steps.

Easy Slider

Mini Burgers

Can’t decide which burger to get from the menu of your favorite high-end burger joint? Easy Slider, one of the original players of the food truck scene, is your go-to. Here, you can have them all, from treasures like the Sweet and Lowdown or the Baby Bella, constructed from certified Angus beef to be bite-sized, delicious, and adorable

Bahn Mi

If you’re from Dallas, you probably first heard of Bahn Mi from Nammi. Whether you prefer grilled or BBQ’ed pork, the crispy exterior and fluffy interior of their signature roll keep Texans coming back for more. The perfect snack after a day of shopping at the Dallas Farmers Market.

Live Within Craving Distance: 

  • Harvest Lofts
  • Taylor Lofts
  • Camden Farmers Market

Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe


No one does comfort food like Ruthie’s, from grilled cheese to a Cuban. Still, how can you resist ordering a sandwich called “The Boss?” Do you even need to hear what’s on it? Okay, we’ll tell you — brisket, BBQ sauce, and lots of cheese. You’re welcome.

  • Advenir on Addison
  • 15777 Quorum by Courtland

Ice Cream Sandwiches

Who can possibly turn down an ice cream sandwich? This institution of Klyde Warren Park allows you to mix and match your favorite soft-baked cookie — snickerdoodle, red velvet, chocolate chip — with custom ice cream offerings ranging from “vanilla” to “fried chicken and waffles.” Is there a better dessert on the planet?

  • The Jordan by Windsor
