Denver – Food Trucks

Foodies know that some of the best meals aren’t served on a silver platter but handed to you from the window of a food truck radiating heat from its built-in kitchen. There are dozens of food trucks scattered throughout Denver, so you should have no trouble tracking down one with a cuisine you’re craving. Whether you have a hankering for Korean tater tots, fried chicken sushi or vegan milkshakes, Denver has a wide range of food trucks that will satisfy your hunger.

The best way to track down these meals on wheels is to check social media to see what festival they’re attending next or what street they’re cruising down. And if you want your friends and family to try some of their delicious food too, you can always ask one of these food truck companies to cater your next birthday party or any other event.


What Would Cheesus Do?

People may wander over to this food truck because of the punny name painted across the side, but their gooey grilled cheese sandwiches is what keeps them coming back. What Would Cheesus Do? puts their own spin on this classic childhood staple and definitely don’t just serve a few slices of American cheese between plain old white bread.

First up on their menu is the Go Fig Yourself, a sweet combination of Brie, Granny Smith apples, and fig jam with a drizzle of balsamic reduction. As you can probably tell by now, this food truck has a dedication to their puns that’s just as admirable as their dedication to grilled cheese.

The Holy Guacamole features fresh guacamole paired with Pepper Jack cheese, turkey, and lots of cilantro lime ranch. After trying it, your homemade grilled cheese will never taste the same.

You also have the option to customize your sandwich by topping it with bacon, pickles, jalapenos, or whatever other add-on you’re craving. Finish your meal with their salted caramel chocolate chip bars and you’ll be full for the afternoon and then some!



DenverWhen some people think of a vegan diet, kale, quinoa, and lentils probably come to mind. Not in the case of WongWayVeg, because this Denver joint figured out a way to add burgers, mozzarella sticks, and even Southern-style chicken and waffles to the mix.

Powered by veggies, WongWayVeg is a Denver-based food truck that serves 100% vegan meals made from scratch. This team of two uses local produce and inspiration from cultures around the world to create their own plant-based versions of classic comfort food dishes.

Sporting a bright orange paint job with carrots in the shape of lightning bolts, it’s hard to miss the WongWayVeg truck. Their menu varies daily, but weekly schedules are posted on their social media. Their most popular item is the barbecue jackfruit burrito, made with pulled jackfruit, carrot-cashew queso macaroni and cheese, and collard green coleslaw.

Items on the menu can also be made gluten-free upon request, such as the Boulder Philly sandwich. With sauteed portobello mushrooms, green chilis, agave mayo, and avocado cashew cream, you might favor this sandwich over a Philly cheesesteak.


Quiero Arepas

In the mood for a hearty Latin meal? Quiero Arepas is a favorite among food truck aficionados in Denver, serving the masses with authentic Venezuelan cuisine.

Fond memories of eating arepas after late-night music gigs inspired Venezuela native Igor and his wife Beckie to start serving their own. Quiero Arepas translates to “I want arepas,” which are corn flour shells filled with meat and other South American ingredients.

Not only are the ingredients fresh, but also locally sourced and gluten-free. Their original arepa features seasoned black beans, sweet plantains, and sliced avocado. All of these are added to the reina pepiada, which is a mouth-watering combination of shredded chicken, mayonnaise, and sweet green peas. With a side of their specialty chicken salad, you have yourself an authentic taste of a widely enjoyed Venezuelan dish.


Roll It Up Sushi Truck

DenverSushi served out of a food truck is a real thing, and you can find it in Denver. Roll It Up Sushi Truck has found an innovative way to serve their customers: preparing their rolls right in front of you.

Roll It Up offers a unique spread of sushi with several different options. The Godzilla roll includes barbecue broiled eel while the Big Sister is made with fried chicken and teriyaki sauce. A popular item is their ahi tuna poke bowl, appropriately named the Pokémon Bowl.

Not only does Roll it Up serve delicious meals and cater events, they also offer personal sushi rolling classes. If you’re a sushi rolling rookie or just craving a few rolls, Roll it Up is the truck to track down.


Chibby Wibbitz Sliderz and Bitez

The name is a mouthful, but so are their sliders! Chibby Wibbitz Sliderz and Bitez serves up the Denver area with sandwiches so delicious they had to make it part of their name.


The Ugly Pig slider features pulled pork with house barbecue sauce, tangy coleslaw, and a pickle. Your other two options are the City Wok, stuffed with Mongolian beef, or the Tatanka, loaded with Buffalo chicken and blue cheese crumbles.

Chibby Wibbitz has no shortage of interesting names on their menu. The Chibb Jong Un “Totz” with Korean beef, kimchi, and sesame seeds are a fan favorite. And if you left room for dessert, grab a slice of their famous Key lime pie and call it a day!


Brad’s Pit BBQ

Food trucks in Denver really seem to love their puns. No one’s complaining though, as Brad’s Pit BBQ truck is proving itself worthy of sharing their name with the famous movie star.

Brad’s serves up Texas-style barbecue that would make the Lone Star State proud. Their menu offers everything you’d expect: brisket, pulled pork, and ribs, accompanied by sides like coleslaw and potato salad. What differentiates this food truck from other barbecue joints isn’t just the name, but the stand out flavors of their meat.

Customers rave about Brad’s baked beans, which have shreds of beef enveloped in a savory mixture of kidney and pinto beans. The beans are covered in their rich barbecue sauce, which would have foodies coming back for seconds if they weren’t served such a generous portion. Head over to Brad’s for some of the best barbecue you can get in Denver.
