When you're on your lunch hour, you don't have endless time to wander around in search of a food truck. A new app, TruckSpotting, will do the dirty work for you by tracking the locations of more than two dozen food trucks.

The app, which originally launched in Atlanta, is available in eight cities. TruckSpotting gives out GPS units to truck owners and the truck's location shows up on the website and the iPhone and Android apps. You'll see the truck's real time location, plus their schedule and menu. You can also rate trucks and save your favorites.

Chicago trucks already signed up include 5411 Empanadas, The Fat Shallot, and the Slide Ride.
