Philadelphia has many hip and trendy restaurants, but it also has equally delicious food trucks that travel all over the city, each with their own personality and flavor. Read ahead for our picks for the best food trucks in Philly.
The Whirly Pig
For carnivores that want nothing more than something delicious and juicy for lunch, look no further than The Whirly Pig food truck. It offers gourmet pork sandwiches made from fresh and local ingredients as well as soups and and a wide range of sides, like mac and cheese, pork and beans, and even fried pickles.

Mom-Mom’s Polish Food Cart
Mom-Mom’s Polish Food Cart brings quick, accessible and tasty Polish food to Philadelphia. The cart offers modern twists on the traditional pierogi with sweet and savory options, with flavors ranging from buffalo chicken and potato cheddar, to the unique chocolate chip cupcake. The cart also offers kielbasa sausage sandwiches that are just as easy to eat on the go. For more information on Mom-Mom’s Polish Food Cart and their daily locations, check out their Twitter, @mommomnomnom.
Foolish Waffles lives up to its name by selling, well, waffles, but unlike the usual syrupy breakfast variety, this food cart offers many different flavors, like sweet caramel apple crisp, PB & J, savory fried chicken and waffles, and tofu banh mi. For those who prefer a traditional waffle, Foolish Waffles also has a ‘create your own waffle’ option with Belgian sugar waffles and your choice of sweet topping. For information on Foolish Waffles, their location and events, follow their Twitter @FoolishWaffles.
The Tot Cart
The bite-sized, crispy potato treat has been reinvented and delivered at the roving Tot Cart. While the original tot can still be found here, the Tot Cart offers a wide variety of flavors, such as chicken pot pie, ‘new bay’ with parmesan, a twist on the popular old bay french fries, and the delicious, satisfying totchos – tater tot nachos! With so many choices in toppings and specials, customers will never get bored. Check out their Twitter, @TheTotCart, for updates on their location.
The Cow and the Curd
Bringing a taste of the Midwest to the East Coast, The Cow and the Curd brings Wisconsin-style cheese curds to Philadelphia. Cheese curds are cheese in its natural state that are then fried in beer batter, creating a crunchy exterior with a gooey center. These crave worthy cheese bites are great with one of their housemade dips (like sriracha mayo or smoked ketchups) and a cold beer.
