Food Trucks Will Make A Stop This Spring in Downtown Rochester
You've probably seen them at Eastern Market, in downtown Royal Oak or parked outside businesses in Troy. Now, the mobile restaurants will be an attraction at "Deck Art" fest in May.
The food trucks are coming.
Three mobile restaurant trucks - serving everything from fried pickles to tacos to soups and sandwiches - will be a featured attraction of the upcoming Deck Art festival in downtown Rochester.
The event is planned for May 16-17 and includes a gallery crawl from downtown business to downtown business to see skateboard decks that will be transformed into works of art.
The food trucks, which are popular in Ferndale, Royal Oak, Troy and other Oakland County cities, are one of several extra attractions planned for the weekend. They'll be parked on East Fourth Street between Main Street and the alley.
Here are the trucks that have been invited to participate during the Deck Art event:
Green Zebra Truck: Yep, this truck is green, and it serves up soups, salads and sandwiches. You can usually find it in Birmingham, Royal Oak and outside Comerica Park, among other spots. For a menu, visit www.eatgreenzebra.com
Concrete Cuisine: The appetizer menu for this truck includes "Frickles" (i.e. fried dill pickles). Also offered: chicken strips, falafel and tabbouleh on pita bread and more. Visit concretecuisine.com.
El Guapo: Fresh Mexican selections include burritos and tacos; this truck is billed as the "first licensed and accepted Detroit food truck in the city’s history," according to its website, www.elguapogrill.com.
