The Texas Food Truck Showdown
March 16

Heritage Square
101 S. Third St., Waco.

When it comes to food trucks, you may think cities like Portland and Los Angeles have the market cornered, but on March 16, Waco plans to give them a run for their money. Since 2015, foodies have flocked to the heart of the Lone Star State to sink their teeth into the signature dishes of various truck cuisines—from Italian and Mexican to Mediterranean—at the annual Texas Food Truck Showdown. Up to 40 trucks and a crowd of approximately 25,000 is expected to chow down and witness the crowning of the next Texas Food Truck Champion. In addition to celebrity judges and a beer and wine garden, festivities include live music, family-friendly activities such as petting zoos and ponies, and, of course, a cornucopia of Texas’ finest street food.
