Eat at Panoptic opened their first brick and mortar in Irondale on May 1, but it all began in a food truck serving up tasty sandwiches and sides. Executive Chef Raquel Ervin’s menu features her signature six-cheese spinach dip and sliders.

5. Eugene’s Hot Chicken

Is there anything better than hot chicken and fries? I think not. Plus, there are a variety of heat levels from southern (no heat) to stupid hot, so you’ll find something you love. If you’re craving Eugene’s, you can follow their food truck or head to one of their storefronts in Uptown or Hoover.

6. Beignets and Lattes Food Truck

If you need a caffeine and sweet treat fix, check out Beignets and Lattes when it rolls to a stop near you. They serve lattes, Nitro coffee, freshly made beignets and everything else you need for a perfectly sweet day.

7. Hyderabad Dum Zone

Hyderabad Dum Zone is an Indian food truck and one of my favorites with delish options like chicken tikka masala, samosas and waffle curry fries.

  • Find them: They head to different locations every day, so your best bet at finding them is following along on Facebook.

Good People beer and eats from Hot Box make the perfect combination, and now that Hot Box has parked outside of Good People, it’s even easier to enjoy them both. Hot Box has even paired beer suggestions with their menu items so you can eat and drink like a champ.

  • Find them: Hot Box is parked at Good People Brewing and open Wednesday-Friday 4-10PM, Saturday 12-10PM and Sunday 12-8PM.
