Who remembers the ice cream truck? Food trucks are like delightful floating oases of hot and cold food, giving you refreshment and helping you manage the heat (or cold.) Food trucks have evolved from the simple ice cream trucks of our childhood into vibrant culinary hubs on wheels. Today, these mobile eateries are a staple in the DMV area, offering an eclectic mix of flavors that cater to every taste and craving. From sizzling hot tacos and gourmet burgers to artisan ice creams and freshly brewed coffee, these trucks bring the richness of global cuisine right to your curbside. Need a quick, fresh lunch? Need something new to snack on? 

Imagine the convenience of grabbing a steaming bowl of pho on a chilly day or a chilled smoothie to beat the summer heat, all just a few steps away from your office or home. These trucks don’t just serve food; they create a bustling marketplace wherever they park, inviting people to gather, eat, and share moments amidst their busy lives.

The Halal Grill

The Halal Grill food truck menu is a delightful showcase of halal-certified offerings catering to various dietary preferences. Notable items include the Chicken over Rice, featuring juicy, marinated chicken, and the Lamb Gyro, enriched with spices and creamy tzatziki sauce. The menu also includes a Combo Platter that allows diners to sample multiple meats. 

Vegetarians are not left out, with options like the Vegetarian Platter, including spiced chickpeas. Side options include fries and salad, enhancing the meal with extra textures and flavors. For those who enjoy a little heat, dishes can be spicy to suit your taste. This variety ensures there's something for everyone at Halal Grill.

Nonni's Sweets and Eats

American comfort food makes for a delightful summer. Chowing down on a burger with all the fixings pairs well with a nice beer, a sprinkler, or a backyard party with all your neighbors. Nonni's Eats & Sweets stands out in the food truck scene, offering a tempting selection of classic comfort foods and delightful desserts. Their menu features staples like hearty quesadillas and juicy burgers alongside indulgent treats such as cobblers and fried cheesecake. What truly sets Nonni's apart is the fresh, high-quality ingredients that ensure each dish is flavorful and satisfying. 

The food truck is known for its warm, welcoming service, making each dining experience enjoyable. Their commitment to maintaining the warmth and freshness of their food, even on the go, has garnered high praise from customers.


SimpLee's food truck brings the vibrant flavors of Jamaica to the DMV area with its rich selection of authentic dishes. The menu is a celebration of Caribbean cuisine, featuring mouth-watering jerk pork marinated in a homemade jerk seasoning that captures the essence of the island's culinary traditions. Additionally, there's seasoned curry chicken that can be enjoyed with either rice and peas or white rice, adding a perfect balance of spice and comfort to each plate.

Accompaniments include tangy vinegar-based coleslaw, sweet fried plantains, and festivals, which are sweet, doughy treats that complement the spicy main courses. For a refreshing finish, SimpLee offers homemade lemonade alongside their savory fare. The food truck also serves up a variety of patties—beef, jerk chicken, and vegetarian—ensuring there's something delightful for every palate.
