The flaming-red California Smothered Burritos food truck has become a familiar St. Elmo sight, offering burritos, nachos and taco salads to hungry passers-by. Alternatively, there’s the converted ambulance that houses The Grilled Cheese Emergency, coming to your lunch’s rescue with artisan sandwiches and tomato soup.
Chattanooga is home to a multitude of food trucks, and you’ll have the opportunity to sample all of them at the Chattanooga Street Food Festival this Sunday.
The festival will include more than twenty-food trucks and concessions. Vendors will include the aforementioned California Smothered Burritos and Grilled Cheese Emergency, as well as guest vendors from nearby areas, including the Atlanta Food Truck coalition.
There will also be two newcomers: Chick-N-Nooga, a food truck that serves “fried chicken with just enough kickin’,” along with house-made sauces and waffle fries; and Shenanigans Food Truck from Sewanee, expected to delight Sewanee alums and upcoming students alike with their house favorite, the Spicy Turkey Melt.
Starting at 11 a.m., food trucks will line the streets in front of the First Tennessee Pavilion, presenting hungry customers with an endless amount of options. Vendors will offer a multitude of specially-made treats, including wood-fired pizza, barbecue, donuts, and fresh-squeezed lemonade.
Whatever your favorite cuisine is, there’ll be a food truck lining up ready to give it to you. Come out this Sunday to support local vendors and to taste some of Chattanooga’s best in the food truck business. Admission to the festival is free.
