11 of Our Favorite Food Trucks in Cleveland

It’s no secret that Cleveland loves its food trucks. From Cajun and pizza to Korean and brunch, we have a little bit of everything for when your next craving strikes! In fact, Walnut Wednesday, Cleveland’s biggest food truck event, has made them even more popular — bringing together almost 20 food trucks in one place every Wednesday from May through September.

Whether you’re in the mood for gourmet burgers, Texas BBQ, or anything in between, there are so many amazing food trucks to choose from in Cleveland. But, out of the hundreds in the area, there are some that stand apart from the rest. We parked some of our favorite mobile eateries in Cleveland on this list. But because these trucks move around frequently, make sure to visit their schedules before heading out the door. Bon Appétit!

Krav Food Truck

Schedule

Krav’s menu is a melting pot of flavor, featuring Mediterranean-inspired fare with hints of Korean and Latin influences throughout. And if that wasn’t enough — these Northeast Ohio locals love putting a Cleveland twist on dishes like their Korean Polish boy with kimchi slaw. Or if you’re looking to go classic, grab their traditional Cleveland Cheesesteak (we recommend a scoop of Asian slaw on top, but that’s just us).

 

Fire Truck Pizza Company

Housed in old fire trucks, Fire Truck Pizza Company is serving up some of the best pizza in Cleveland. Their refurbished trucks are equipped with a wood-burning oven, directly imported from Italy, that cook at temperatures over 800 degrees. Grab a piece of their signature pizza, the Bacon Honey, made with house-made garlic white sauce topped with bacon, mozzarella, and a blend of secret spices, drizzled with honey. Add a scoop of their homemade ice cream to your order and you’ll have yourself a perfect summer afternoon!

 

Betty’s Bomb Ass Burgers

Schedule

This female-owned and -operated food truck is a Cleveland favorite, serving gourmet burgers and homemade cheesy tots to hungry locals. They also cater, so you can hire them for your dream wedding, a corporate event, or even just an intimate anniversary dinner for two. But when you do pay them a visit, or have them come to you, make sure to place an order for Betty’s Poutine, cheesy tots topped with braised beef, cheese curds and homemade gravy!

 

Smokin’ Rock N’ Roll Truck

Schedule

Smokin’ Rock N’ Roll Truck was the dream of two music career professionals, Billy Morris and Todd Chaisson, who started writing recipes instead of learning songs. They partnered up and decided to give the food truck scene a good college try and we’re so glad they did. Today, they serve up some tasty smoked meats and vegetables daily — with a heaping side of Rock and Roll of course!

 

Proper Pig Smokehouse

Schedule

Texas BBQ, home-smoked meats and bacon on a stick — need we say more? The Proper Pig Smokehouse started out with just two friends and a utility truck they purchased off of Craigslist. Today, it’s one of the most popular food trucks in the area and an extremely successful restaurant in Lakewood. Don’t miss their tantalizing selections like the Lake Erie Crusher, a hot sausage sandwich with slaw, or any of their juicy smoked meats that you can buy by the pound.

 

Manna

Schedule

Not only does Manna donate a portion of their proceeds to hunger efforts, but they also serve one of the most diverse menus in the area. Dive into a plate of slow-roasted beef brisket with cherry cola BBQ sauce, an Asian chicken sandwich, duck confit or their famous lobster roll (or all of the above — we won’t judge).

 

Zydeco

Schedule

Zydeco is a unique, Cajun and Creole-influenced mobile restaurant providing delicious New Orleans-inspired dishes to the greater Cleveland area. The booming business is owned and operated by Chef Johnny Schulze from Baton Rouge, so you can rest assured that he knows how to create fantastic and authentic Cajun dishes. They move around a lot, so make sure to take a look at their weekly schedule so you can find them during your next lunch break!

 

Slyman’s Tavern

Schedule

If you’ve ever looked up the hashtag #CleFoodie on Instagram, then you’ve probably seen hundreds of drool-inducing photos of Slyman’s famous corned beef sandwich. The hefty dish is several inches thick, layered with 12-14 ounces of corned beef. So clear your day and head to Slyman’s food truck, which you can usually find tucked away in a Cleveland suburb or feeding crowds at a local festival, and indulge in the best sandwich you’ll ever have — we promise.

 

 

Beachcombers

Schedule

Founded by Culinary Institute of America graduates, chefs and brothers, J.J and Kevin Altomare, the Beachcomber Truck offers a diverse menu full of coastal-inspired dishes. You’ll find everything from buffalo chicken pierogies to Caribbean chicken over coconut rice — all made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

 

DonutLab

Schedule

Cleveland’s first and only mobile mini donut kitchen, the DonutLab is a dessert food truck where you can get a bag of hot, fresh donuts or even a donut parfait. We recommend ordering a bag of their simple, yet amazing, powdered sugar mini donuts and a side of their raspberry sauce for dipping!

 

The Brunch Box

Schedule

We firmly believe that you shouldn’t have to wait until the weekend to enjoy our favorite meal of the day: brunch. That’s why we love stopping by the Brunch Box whenever we can. Enjoy fresh eggs, bacon and croissants all week long along with other delicious staples like salads and sandwiches. You can usually find them at the VA Medical Center, but make sure to check out their schedule on their Facebook Page.
