Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo
Friday, October 11, 2013, 4pm by visitRaleigh
The last Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo of the year is this Sun. Head to Fayetteville St. from noon-5pm. to eat specialties from more than 50 food trucks. Just a piece of Foodie advice, get there early and map out where you want to eat. The rodeos have been a huge hit drawing thousands of Foodies. This Oct. rodeo is going to be great! Check out the food truck line-up. There's a lot to choose from and you're guaranteed to leave with a full belly!
Here are a few of my favorite food truck picks:
Big Mikes BBQ Redneck Nachos
Fritos topped with Eastern North Carolina pulled pork, baked beans, blue cheese coleslaw, and sweet hot mustard. Talk about a flavor explosion. Sweet, savory and spicy all in one dish! The Fritos also add a nice crunch factor. What makes the redneck nachos is definitely the pulled pork. If you’re a barbecue connoisseur please do me a favor and go taste the juicy pulled pork at Big Mikes BBQ.
Sweet Stacey Cakes Cupcakes
You can't go wrong when ordering a Sweet Stacey Cakes cupcake. I'm a huge fan of them all! The PNut Butter Baby is a rich, moist chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing. You’re in for quite a treat when you reach the gooey peanut butter filling, and I always save my topping, a Reese’s peanut butter cup, for last.
Sarge's Chef on Wheels Shrimp and Grits
Sarge's Chef on Wheels is a new spin on Asian, Caribbean and other soulful flavors. One of their signature items is the shrimp and grits. You're in for a treat; the shrimp and grits even include bacon! This dish will surely warm you up on a cool Oct. day.
