We’re big fans of food trucks here at Jennings Volkswagen. In addition to offering some of the best eats in the city, food trucks provoke a sense of excitement by serving up the unexpected! We’ve put together a list of our favorite Chicago food trucks, so you can find the best and skip the rest! Whether you’re a longtime local or you’re planning a trip, you’ll find plenty to get excited about here.

Best Chicago Food Trucks for Breakfast and Lunch

  • The Happy Lobster – Whether you choose the “Happy” rolls with mayo and butter, or the extra-spicy “Angry” rolls, this popular truck’s well-loved lobster is sure to improve your afternoon.
  • The Corner Farmacy – In 2019, lovers of fresh, local, and sustainably-sourced food can find exactly what they’re looking for at the window of a food truck! Try “The Goat,” a cheesy breakfast sandwich with bacon and peach preserves.

Best Chicago Food Trucks for Dinner

  • DönerMen – In many ways, food trucks capitalize on a world-wide love for great street food. In Germany, Turkey, and elsewhere, the most popular fare is döner. This food truck just might offer the best version of this kebab variant you’ll find!
  • 5411Empanadas – This now-famous Chicago food truck serves up an exceptionally scrumptious selection of empanadas. They offer more than a dozen fillings, including malbec beef, bacon, dates, goat cheese, as well as off-kilter options like mac and cheese. At $2.99 a pop, what’s not to love?

Best Chicago Food Trucks for Dessert

  • Beavers Donuts – We’d forgive you if you didn’t know what to expect from a food truck named Beavers Donuts, but you won’t be able to furrow your brow with a box of their delicious and cleverly-topped miniature donuts in your hand.
  • A Sweets Girl – The cultural moment for cupcakes may have come and gone, but A Sweets Girl is here to stay! Try the Red Velvet, or go for something unexpected, like their S’Mores-flavored or Matcha Tea cupcakes.

How to Find the Best Chicago Food Trucks

For many diners, the fun of eating at a food truck consists in the fact that you really have to be in the right place at the right time in order to take advantage! We wouldn’t want to take this magic away from anyone, but what if you have friends or relatives visiting from out of town? What if you have a craving that no other restaurant will be able to satisfy?

Most Chicago food trucks will update their locations on social media, so a quick look on Twitter or Instagram could serve you well! Some of the most popular local options are also tracked on Chicago Food Truck Finder and Roaming Hunger.
