Ready for a cheap lunch that shows off some foodie flair? Then get out your phone (or pop open your laptop) to find our favorite Midwest food trucks. Spicy ethnic dishes, farm-fresh veggies and sweet treats are just a click away.
Hundreds of these trucks share tacos, crepes, pizzas, loaded mac 'n' cheese and seasonal specialties from brightly painted setups that wander like nomads throughout Midwest cities. The mostly seasonal trucks evoke the casual ease of roadside fruit stands—no dress codes, no wait for a table and a perfect chance to chat up the chefs about ingredients.
Food trucks can be unpredictable, setting up on this corner on Tuesday, in that park on Thursday. But most keep their fans in the know by posting their schedules on websites, or updating their whereabouts on Facebook or Twitter.
For truck fans, walking along unexplored city streets or through a favorite park to find it is as much a part of the dining experience as the actual food. The dishes are fast food, but the chefs behind the wheel hope you'll savor your meal slowly.
