Here’s where to find the food trucks this summer near Delaware


In recent years, food trucks seem to have popped up all over the place.

You don’t just see them at music festivals or carnivals anymore. Business owners can now park in their own driveways or along a busy stretch of road and end up with a big turnout.

The COVID-19 pandemic, which emphasizes social distancing, outdoor dining, and takeout, may be responsible for a surge in the food truck industry.

So thinks Beach Bowl owner John Rinaldi. “Customers can eat out, take out and use contactless payment options. At Beach Bowls, we provide online ordering to avoid waiting in line. The food truck industry has thrived during the pandemic! »

One of the advantages of food trucks is that they often come to you. Some can even deliver right to your door!

“Our main location is on Fenwick Island, but we are mobile and can be booked for events or festivals,” Rinaldi said. “We are also launching our second unit which will be fully mobile in the Dewey Beach area. Recently at Beach Bowls we signed our first franchisee, who will be launching a location in Clear Spring, Maryland!”

A trend of recent years is event catering trucks such as weddings and

degrees, instead of a traditional catering business.

“You can reserve Beach Bowls for any type of party, occasion or event…” Rinaldi said. “We attended birthday parties, graduations, community center gatherings, to name a few.”

Rinaldi and his team also want to end the misconceptions that food trucks are unhealthy and just another form of fast food.

Instead, he views Beach Bowls as a healthier alternative that’s part of a larger wellness trend.

“We are changing current expectations when consumers order a bowl of acai and dragon fruit. We provide fast and friendly service. We don’t alter the pure form of a super fruit, rather we exalt it by offering it as a frozen sorbet.”

Whether you’re craving an acai bowl, tacos, waffles, or a juicy burger, here are 12 food trucks that hope to serve you well this summer and beyond:

302 Food Plug is located along Newport Gap Pike.

Here you can get foods like cheesesteak spring rolls, crispy and tender fries, half salmon and half steak spring rolls and much more.

You can order online for takeout or delivery and 302 Food Plug can also be booked for catering. Hours are Monday to Friday 11am to 6:30pm

Beach Bowls takes a typical acai bowl and turns it into a fresher, healthier option.

By changing the bottom of their bowls to puree, they say they reduce the added sugars often present in these kinds of bowls.

When ordering, you can choose directly from their menu or customize your own bowl. Beach Bowls also offers several toast options.

This truck is always on the move. but you can head over to the official Beach Bowls Instagram to find them.
