The 10 Most Delicious Food Trucks in Virginia!

Food trucks are the latest culinary sensation. All across Virginia, and the rest of the United States, these roving restaurants provide down-home deliciousness, served as soon it’s hot. While the lines can get long, these 10 food trucks across the state are more than worth the wait.

1. Tacos El Torito, Fairfax, VA

Northern Virginia is one of the food truck meccas of the Commonwealth, and Tacos El Torito is, for some, a holy site of pilgrimage. Most of the Yelp reviews are glowing. The consensus seems to be that the chicken tacos and carne asada tacos are the bees knees, but there isn’t a dish that doesn’t get praise. Stop by Lee Highway in Fairfax and look for the truck with the large red “taco” sign. You can’t (and shouldn’t) miss it.

2. Brandon’s Little Truck, Arlington VA

Brandon’s Little Truck serves the Arlington and greater D.C. area. Founded by Chef Brandon Ingenito and Aline Fernandes in 2013, their mission “is to provide customers with simple, boldly flavored food executed with refinement.” Gourmet sandwiches, shrimp, and a seasonal menu make Brandon’s Little Truck burst with flavor. 

3. BBQ Bus, Northern Virginia/DC

The BBQ Bus not only offers the best BBQ in the Northern Virginia area, but is open to catering and private events. The bus is never in the same spot day to day, so it’s essential potential customers check their website calendar. Their street side service offers six different sandwiches, five picnic plates, as well as a plethora of side dishes. Come with your appetite.

4. Bandido’s Taco and Burritos, Virginia Beach, VA

Due to the limited space a truck has to cook in, tacos and similar, bite-sized edibles become staples. But no two tacos are alike, and Bandido’s Taco and Burritos in Virginia Beach, Virginia, offers unique flavors all their own. The fish tacos are the main attractions. Check out Bandido’s roaming across Virginia Beach, but usually near Sandbridge.

5. Seoul 757 Tacos, Virginia Beach, VA

Get a taste of the South Korean capital without leaving home. Seoul 757 Taco is a newer food truck, offering up Korean staples like Bibimbop along with Korean inspired tacos and burritos. Fresh Korean BBQ is always on the menu, too. 

6. Captain Cookie and the Milk Man, Northern Virginia/DC

With three separate food trucks servicing the D.C. and Northern Virginia area, cookie nirvana is never too far away. Captain Cookie and the Milk Man are available for private events, and delivery. Besides the classic chocolate chip, peanut butter, and snicker doodle cookies, ginger molasses and vegan chocolate chip mix things up. Great for satisfying those sugar cravings.

7. Kaftamania, Crystal City, VA

Kaftamania serving Crystal City, Chinatown, and Arlington, offers fast-casual Mediterranean cuisine. Sandwiches, such as the classic kafta and turkey kafta, are familiar gyro style, whereas the kafta bowls mix it all up in an easy to carry dish. Side dishes like haloumi cheese and baba ghanoush make this Mediterranean truck feel like home. 

8. Mama’s Donut Bites, Falls Church, VA

A family of donut lovers who wanted to take their delicious creations to the world founded mama’s Donut Bites in 2011. Since then, it has won multiple awards and been listed in publications like Northern Virginia Living. The truck travels through Vienna, Falls Church, and the Westover and Dover Farmers Markets. Look for the pink truck with the giant stack of donuts on the side.

9. Boka Truck, Richmond, VA

The Boka Truck is one of Richmond’s best, having been awarded as such in 2015. Most recently, the Boka Truck won an award for excellent wedding services. Their goal is simple: “Great food. Served up with a twist.” Enjoy the braised beef, shrimp and grits, or duck confit tacos. If you’re in the mood for something a little less experimental, give the good old Mexican, American, or Asian taco a shot. For $4 apiece, you can’t go wrong.

10. Christopher’s Runaway Gourmay, Richmond, VA

Christopher’s Runaway Gourmay is closed for the winter, but will reopen in the summer months to serve up delicious favorites, such as penne in pesto sauce with green beans, sesame pasta, and lemon and dill tuna salad. With various pastas, salad, and al a carte items, Christopher’s Runaway Gourmay is a wonderful option.
