Do This: Oak Park's Great Food Truck Rally

By Anthony Todd in Food on May 6, 2013 4:20PM

Tis the season for food truck rallies. These lovely events which saturated the food landscape last summer allow diners to sample the wares from many different trucks without chasing them around the city, Amazing Race-style, while frantically following them on Twitter. In an Oak Park first, Oak Park's Great Food Truck Rally is bringing a whole mess of trucks to the suburbs on May 11.

Starting at noon, the food trucks (a list is below) will open up to the public. They'll stay (with some switches) until 6 p.m. This event is more than just food trucks — there is live music and tours of the Pilgrim Congregational Church.

The list of trucks (subject to change) includes:

Beyond Borders Farm to Food Truck
Chicago Cupcake
Cupcakes for Courage
5411 Empanadas
Get Curried Away
Ice Cubed
JERK, Modern Jamaican Grill
Mojo Express
Taquero Fusion
Tamales Spaceship
Toasty Cheese

Oak Park's Great Food Truck Rally is at 460 Lake Street.
