For those who don’t know, Nashville is all about the hip trends. From record stores to artisan coffee shops to outdoor concerts, Music City surely likes the niche lifestyle. Food plays a major role in the hearts of Nashvillians and the latest craze just so happens to be the food truck. Kind of like the cool way to do Meals on Wheels, or something like that.

While fans of this food movement have be on high alert when they search for the truck of their dreams, Nashville offers a variety of options around the city for all tastes and temptations. Here are just a few of the best food trucks to try on the hunt for some good grubbin’:

The Grilled Cheeserie

Whoever came up with the invention of the grilled cheese sandwich deserves all the awards. The Grilled Cheeserie puts its own spin on the American classic with a variety of gourmet options. Opt for the Pimento Mac & Cheese Sandwich, complete with Benton’s Bacon and locally made pimento cheese. Hungry people won’t be sorry!

Retro Sno

Shaved ice isn’t just in Hawaii anymore! Nashville’s own Retro Sno knows just how to make some of the sweetest concoctions for those who love the icy treat. On a hot summer’s day, who wouldn’t want to treat themselves to something so refreshing? For those dessert daredevils out there, some of their creations add a scoop of ice cream to the mix!

Funk Seoul Brother

Known for their sushi burritos, Funk Seoul Brother puts together the ingredients in a traditional roll and wraps it on up to look similar to that of an actual burrito. Mindblown.

The Peach Truck

Don’t be fooled by the name: this food truck is just for peaches. They sell them straight from the trees of Georgia by the bagful and encourage customers to come up with delicious recipes for their yummy summer fruit. Even local businesses around town go in on the challenge—anywhere from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams to Barista Parlor put their peaches to good use in their own dishes!

S’More Love Bakery

It may not look like much, but S’More Love Bakery is quite possibly the cutest and most delicious little food trailer ever. Priding themselves on keeping the simple life alive with the help of a campfire treat is just what we wish to hear when it comes to making a nice and gooey s’more. Pass the marshmallows and graham crackers, please.

Cousins Maine Lobster

After being featured on the entrepreneurial-based reality television show, Shark Tank, Cousins Maine Lobster has made it big here in Nashville. With a menu featuring New England favorites to Mexican-inspired plates, it’s the lobster that remains the biggest star of this food truck.

Bacon Nation

Give me some of that bacon! Bacon Nation specializes in the overly popular meat, making all kinds of bacon creations. Cleverly named “The Double Bypass,” one of their sandwiches includes two 50/50 patties between two bacon grilled cheeses. That’s one heart attack we wouldn’t mind trying!
