The holidays are a hectic time of year, with charitable events to attend here and gifts to buy there. With so many chores on your Christmas to-do list, sometimes it’s easier to grab a bite on the go. And what better place is there to do that than a restaurant on wheels?
We’re a big fan of local food trucks. From pizza and burgers to falafel and bahn mi, Western North Carolina has food trucks all over, and it’s easy to find whatever foods fill your fancy. That is, if you know where to look. Luckily, our agents are experts in finding homes that meet your tastes—and food trucks, too.
We asked them: What is the best food truck in Western North Carolina?
I just had Gypsy Queen Cuisine and it was fabulous! So many flavors abound in their Mediterranean and Lebanese delights!
Amazing Pizza Co. is, well, amazing! Our kids say it’s the best pizza in town. Plus, they are super friendly!
Root Down! Don’t miss the unbelievable flavors from this Southern/Creole food truck. Usually found at breweries, festivals, and concerts, Root Down is a must try. The roast beef debris po’ boy and crawfish poutine are out of this world!
Oskar Blues CHUBwagon has one of the best burgers! You can find them parked at The Hub in Brevard for lunch on Wednesdays. I love to stop in for a burger and fries after some afternoon hiking or fishing on the Davidson River. Then, if you are like me, you can wash down that burger with a local draft beer from Pisgah Tavern inside the the Hub and do some shopping for new gear! You can also find the CHUBwagon at their Brevard brewery most days of the week.
The best food truck in Burnsville is the Hog Hollow Wood-Fired Pizza Truck that is often found outside of Homeplace Brewery. It serves the most delicious pizza around. I never miss the opportunity to purchase a pie from this truck—it tastes oh, so GOOOOD!
Although many Asheville food trucks have a piece of my heart, El Querubin has the biggest chunk. El Querubin is not your typical American Mexican food—this is the real deal! Handmade tortillas, empanadas, and tamales offer authenticity and demonstrate the love El Querubin has for its culture, and for our community.
Farm to Fender’s food truck is the very definition of Southern comfort food. The fried green tomato BLT is our go-to, but the other menu items are equally delicious. The shoestring french fries are phenomenal! And the staff treat you like family, which only adds to the charm.
