If you’re visiting Nashville, you should definitely try some of the town’s best restaurants, but you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you were to neglect the tasty food Nashville’s food trucks have to offer. From more variations of grilled cheese than you knew existed, to loaded burgers, to all things crepe, Nashville’s food trucks have some of the best food in town. Here are five of the best food trucks in Nashville.
Created by a husband and wife team, The Grilled Cheeserie provides Nashville with gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches as well as deserts. In addition to their specialty melts, you have the option to build your own melt with your choice of cheese, bread, and additions. The location of their food trucks vary, but you can find out where it is by using their website. If their food truck happens to be on a catering job or off that day, check out their melt shop in Hillsboro Village.
If you’re a fan of Asian cuisine, then Deg Thai is the food truck for you. Offering a daily fusion of authentic Asian cuisine, Deg Thai’s fan favorites include the winner of 2013’s “Best Hot Nashville”–– the Massaman beef with jasmine rice and cucumber sauce; however, if you’re looking for more of a kick, try the red or green curries. And to wash all this hot food down, try their Thai tea. You can find out where their food truck will be by visiting their website.
Hoss’ Loaded Burgers
Do you like burgers? How about loaded burgers? Hoss’s Loaded Burgers serves, well, loaded burgers. These gourmet burgers use beef from 100% grass fed, local cows. That should make the carnivore in you happy. And if your inner carnivore is lacking, they have vegan variations of every burger on their menu. Most burgers come stuffed with cheddar or swiss. Check out their website for their full menu as well as their truck’s scheduled locations.
Operated by Chef Yayo Jiménez, Yayo’s OMG! serves original gourmet Mexican food. Yayo’s combines authentic Mexican flavor with local ingredients grown in Tennessee.
