“If you want to impress me with your car, it better be a food truck.”

If you relate to that quote, check out these local food trucks because they really understand the assignment! 

 

Millie’s Garden

For 8 years now, Cindy Buchanan has been the lady behind Millie’s Garden food truck. After spending the entirety of her lunch breaks waiting for food and eating in a rush, she started making salads for herself and coworkers to have healthy meals on the go.

Her salads were an instant hit and word spread that they were more than just your ordinary bowl of greens and dressing. Now, Millie’s Garden (named after her dog, Millie) can be spotted rolling around town. Her best seller is the Curry Chicken, served with a pita and homemade dressing while the Chicken Teriyaki salad is her personal favorite. 

Download the Street Finder app on iTunes to see where Millie’s Garden is scheduled to pop up next, or visit her website to see the menu.

 

The Fry Guy

The Fry Guy food truck is a family owned and operated business serving Memphis since 2018. Quincey and Deneishia Wadley combined their culinary knowledge to create a menu that would be a hit among all people—because who doesn’t love potatoes!

Their menu of fries served with decadent toppings highlights unconventional offerings with a traditional taste. From “Grindhouse” fries that are topped with barbecue to “Across the border” fajita loaded fries, there are a variety of flavorful frites waiting for you to enjoy.

Stan’s Big Biscuit

Stan Cothren was introduced to biscuit making when he moved to Oregon. Apparently, biscuits are to Oregonians what barbecue is to us southern folk. When he moved back down south, he decided to bless the 901 with the biscuit business, and thus is the origin story of Stan’s Big Biscuit.

Despite all odds, Stan launched his food truck during the pandemic—and their success has shown that no global crisis can keep folks from a tasty feast. Biscuits and gravy are the best seller for the food truck, but you can’t go wrong with the smoked bologna, the bacon egg and cheese, or the cinnamon biscuit bites.

Pablo’s Cuisine and Grille:

Pablo’s Cuisine and Grille is a family owned food truck offering authentic Mexican cuisine made fresh with locally sourced produce and meat.

If the fajita nachos don’t get you hooked, the torta is sure to make you a loyal customer—and lunch time is crunch time for them, so skip the brown bag for some tacos, chimichangas, or a chicken burrito. 

 

There are even more food trucks just waiting for you to discover, and you might find your new favorite at the Soulful Food Truck Festival on Saturday, September 26th!
