As you would expect, August is going to be a slow month for the food trucks. As hot is it outside the trucks, it can be 30 degrees hotter inside the trucks. With that in mind, all large scale events have been postponed and the trucks will be gathering in small groups, hopefully in shaded areas to serve you and keep you from heating up your own kitchen.
Monday nights are now Monday Night “Foodball” at The Arbors at Frankford and 18212 Preston Road in Dallas. Each Monday night several trucks will on-site to bring North Dallas some of the best food off of a food truck.
Street Food Wednesday continues in the parking lot of Crate and Barrel 3104 Knox Street in Dallas. Each week, four to five trucks set up in this location, from 6-9 for your dinner enjoyment.
Wednesday nights also brings the Food Truck Experience at Sigel’s on 5757 Greenville Avenue. Each week Good Karma Kitchen, Rockstar Bakeshop, Rock & Roll Tacos, Cajun Tailgators, SCI, Three Lions, Crazy Fish and Enticed will be set up outside while Sigel’s is open for cooling off inside while you shop for your adult beverages, from 6-9 pm.
Thursday Night Bites will continue in at 3875 Pointe Avenue in Addison, with 5-6 trucks rotating each week from 6-9 pm. There is a lot of green space in this area, so that cools things down considerable. For the month of August a movie will be playing from 8-10pm and the trucks have the option to stay the extra hour.
Starting August 2, US Food Trucks has partnered up with Camden properties and will be bringing food trucks to the Camden Farmers Market (Marilla & Farmers Market Way – caddy corner from the Dallas Farmers Market) on Thursday nights from 5-8pm.

Trucks scheduled to serve include Nammi, Jack’s Chowhound, Good Karma Kitchen, SCI, Rock and Roll Tacos, Four Seasons, Crazy Fish, Cajun Tailgators, Three Lions, Rockstar Bakeshop and Jack’s Chowhound.
Beginning August 16, food trucks will start serving dinner at Cedars Food Park at Old Heritage Village in Dallas. The Grand Opening of this location was a huge success and everyone loved the tree shaded park. This should be a great dinner location for the trucks. On Friday, August 31, the trucks will also start serving on Friday nights at the same location.
