Top Food Trucks In Las Vegas

June 19, 2013 5:00 AM

Food in Las Vegas comes in no short supply. Large restaurants and dine-in eating establishments are a dime a dozen. What about those days where you want to avoid the stuffiness of a classic restaurant and simply want something rustic or a little less formal? That’s where food trucks come in; and while most have been commonly tagged as “roach coaches” for their undesirable look, the following five mobile eateries help to put that moniker to rest. Offering authentic cuisines that you would normally get at five-star restaurants, these Las Vegas-based food trucks are the talk of the town.

Sin City Snoballs & Snacks
4181 W. Pioneer Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89103
(702) 751-4766

At this sweet tooth-driven restaurant on the go, you get to skip the greasy food you would expect from one of those carnival food trucks and move right to dessert. Enjoy an assortment of snoballs infused with flavors such as black cherry jubilee, root beer float and a mixture of coconut, pineapple and rum. Flavored ice not your style? Try one of the handmade ice cream sandwich sundaes or indulge in a bacon and maple donut.

Slidin’ Thru
(702) 645-1570

Slidin’ Thru offers an assortment of juicy burgers, all topped with fresh toppings within a soft bun. Utilizing only fresh-made ingredients, Slidin’ Thru’s menu of sliders is as delicious as they come. Chow down on a pulled pork slider or let the vegetarian inside indulge on the all-veggie caprese. Top your meal off with crispy French or sweet potato fries and a thick and refreshing chocolate, vanilla or strawberry milkshake.

Chi-Town Hustler
(702) 289-5040

With Chi-Town Hustler, Chicago cuisine works it way into the streets of Las Vegas. Offering an array of authentic Italian dishes, this food truck provides heavy meals that will more than fill you up. Fresh Italian sausage, homemade meatballs, chicken parmesan and all-beef hot dogs are the focus of this truck’s staple dishes. It wouldn’t be an Italian joint without pasta, and Chi-Town’s deep-fried ravioli helps to fill that void. Chi-Town moves around quite a bit, so log onto its website for a look at the truck’s projected schedule.

Great Bao
(702) 900-2168

In Chinese, the term “bao” refers to small steamed yeast buns that are often stuffed with a wide range of items. The Great Bao focuses on these small delicacies and offers up many tender variations of these mini-sandwiches. From steamed pork belly to expertly flavored chicken, this food truck produces unexpected authentic flavors. If bao isn’t quite your style, feel free to try out this locale’s sesame noodle dishes, which can include tofu, mushrooms and various greens.

The Redneck Kitchen
(919) 815-5815

The Redneck Kitchen is known for its large, tortilla-less burritos.

Staples like rice and beans, cheese, sour cream and guacamole can adorn your delicious creation. Top your meal off with one of the savory dessert items, such as the chocolate pork balls.
