Food Trucks

Durham is home to dozens of great mobile dining options. Since 2008, chefs in Durham have used the lower barriers to entry of the mobile opportunity to take new concepts to the customers. This has resulted in a wide range of options that span the globe.

Durham has Latin American cuisine, pizza, Korean BBQ, homemade ice cream, burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, a mobile deli, donuts, cupcakes, coffee, and more - all on wheels. All this is in addition to Durham's colorful palate of brick and mortar places that range from affordable to extravagant, many of which got their start as a mobile operation.
