Randy Hu opened Bobaddiction to bring his love for Boba tea to Dallas when he noticed a lack of good options in the area. There’s currently two food trucks that serve a broad selection of Boba teas like mango green tea and blackberry black tea with real fruit! They also have mochi ice cream which is a thin layer of mochi rice around homemade ice cream, and egg waffle served with ice cream, toppings, and syrups.

Ruthie’s Rolling Café

Ruthie’s Rolling Café doesn’t serve your mama’s grilled cheeses. This food truck packs a mean punch with gourmet grilled cheeses the likes of which include barbecue brisket, chicken, turkey, or bacon. They even cater to those who have gluten allergies with gluten-free bread. Their desserts shouldn’t be overlooked. What’s not to love about the Nutella Nirvana which spreads Nutella and cream cheese on sourdough bread sprinkled with cinnamon sugar?

Cajun Tailgators

Cajun Tailgators was the first Cajun food truck in Dallas and the locals are all too happy to get a taste of Louisiana in the Big D. The owners were two LSU graduates who met in Dallas and missed the good cooking of Louisiana. The Great Food Truck Race and the longing for Louisiana food inspired the owners to start a food truck and within four months, they were rolling through Dallas serving Cajun cooking. The menu changes daily but includes Cajun favorites like red beans and rice, boudin balls, crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, and beignets.

The menu offers unique takes and fusions of Vietnamese food like Asian street tacos as well as traditional items like banh mi sandwiches and rice or noodle bowls. There’s currently two food trucks, and at least one can be found at Klyde Warren Park at different times and days throughout the week.

T.J.’s Dawg House

Every city has an amazing hot dog serving food truck, and Dallas does, too! It’s called T.J.’s Dawg House and it offers homemade bread buns and delicious sausages, many from Chicago.
