Non-gourmet Food Trucks

jpeezey12 | Mar 18, 2012 08:50 AM

Let me preface to say that I love all the gourmet food trucks that are now available around Boston. While it's not quite at the level of say Portland, OR or NYC, NY, in the last year and a half it has definitely exploded and we are getting some fine quality food at decent prices in Boston.

However, and maybe I'm alone on this, but I would really love to see some non-gourmet food trucks pop up. Sometimes when I go to SOWA or am walking around Boston, I really just want a $3 chicken kabob or $5 gyro. Maybe I'm wrong in thinking these type of food trucks don't exist in Boston, but I definitely have not seen them. Would it be that bad for a Halal truck from NYC to come to Boston every once in a while and treat us with cheap chicken and rice? Or maybe those Puerto Rican and Mexican trucks that are parked in New Haven across from the IKEA can do some weekday sales in the Commons. I mean, it may not be gourmet food, but those trucks have some of the best food truck food I've ever tasted. AND CHEAP!

Anyway, if you know of a good taco stand or gyro guy around the city, please let me know and I'll keep up my search and will post any non-gourmet food trucks I find.

(PS, I am aware that there are plenty of hot dogs/sausage and hot roasted peanut stands around, and while good from time to time, not quite what I'm talking about.)
