Whether you’re with a large group of people who can’t decide on one place to eat, with just one person who doesn’t love your pick for lunch, or you’re dining alone and simply want a variety to choose from, food truck parks are the answer. Fort Worth Food Park was the first food truck park in the city, and is located near the Cultural District and West 7th. In addition to food trucks, the park has live music, outdoor games, an outdoor bar and patio, and is dog-friendly. While the food trucks constantly rotate, here is some of the food they serve and the food trucks to keep an eye out for.
Making frequent appearances in the park is Gepetto’s Pizza Truck, serving up homemade pies with flavors like buffalo chicken, meat lovers, and “Popeye”—spinach, chicken, feta cheese, and capers. They also have a build-your-own pizza option and serve salads, desserts, and vegan options.
Fresh veggies, tender cuts of meat, and soft pita bread epitomize Mediterranean food, and this food truck park has two trucks that make appearances, offering tasty Mediterranean dishes. ZaTaR gives Mediterranean dishes a New York twist and cranks out falafel, pitas, house-made hummus, gyros, and baklava pastries for dessert. Turkish Texans makes Turkish classics with a Texas flair. Popular dishes include their varieties of kumpir—a Turkish-style baked potato—filled with cheese, butter, veggies, and meats like brisket or a beef hot dog with chili cheese. They also serve Philly-cheese gyros, Turkish-style fries, and more.
Holy Frijole is a truck you’ll want to experience over and over again. People love their street tacos, but they’re also known for their tortas, nachos, and huaraches—homemade corn tortillas stuffed with beans, salsa, a choice of meat, sour cream, avocado, queso fresco and pico de gallo. For dessert, try the churros or tres leches cake.
Vegan and Vegetarian Food
Even plant eaters can find a tasty meal at this food truck park. Down to Earth serves vegan and vegetarian meals with fresh ingredients. Menu items include a veggie burger, nopalitos (grilled cactus) tacos, grilled veggie quesadillas, yellow coconut curry, tomato and basil pesto grilled cheese, and four-bean chili.
Cure your sweet tooth at the Life is Sweet truck. Treats vary from day to day, but often include decorated sugar cookies, brownies with ice cream, cupcakes, coke floats, and cookie ice cream sandwiches.
The on-site Cantina bar serves craft beers and has a full bar. Happy hour on Friday means half-price drafts, Saturday has a half-price special drink of the day, and Sunday features $2 mimosas all day long.
