It’s just like the ice cream man when you were a kid, except this time the truck is filled with tacos, hot chicken and all your local Birmingham food truck favorites. Maybe there are some perks to this social distancing thing after all?
PSSST a lot of these restaurants were pulled from our fabulous database featuring nearly 400 local businesses! Sign up your Birmingham business and be featured on Bham Now for FREE.
BUT first, an ode to food trucks:
“Food trucks are one of humanity’s best ideas. I had my first açaí bowl at a food truck that came out to the Brook Highland neighborhood Memorial Day kickoff.
Life-changing. I think if I were to write a verse of ‘My Favorite Things’ a la Julie Andrews, food trucks would definitely be in there.”Sheila McCallum, content producer, food truck extraordinaire
It’s no secret we love food trucks on this team—did you see 7 food trucks offering curbside delivery and takeout?

Cheese, the nations great equalizer (except if you’re lactose intolerant). Cheezin is making its way to local neighborhoods such as Longmeadow, Carrington Lakes and Stockton. The best way to know where they’ll be next? Follow their Instagram!

But wait! There’s more
The only thing I like more than talking about food is eating it, so let’s take a look at what else is happening on wheels in the restaurant world.
Bonus: be on the lookout for OHenry’s!
No, this isn’t a dream Lorelai and Rory Gilmore thought up in Luke’s Diner. OHenry’s caffine cruiser (my name, not theirs) will bring all your OHenry’s favorites right to your door when you pre-oder.
