The first time I went to Austin, Texas, I fell in love with a food truck. Its name was Casa del Fuego, and it served one thing: tacos. Since then, I’ve been pretty sad that there aren’t any food trucks in Memphis as a result of highly prohibitive city legislation.
At least, until now.
Today, hundreds of people stood in crazy long lines for burgers, Yolo, barbecue and crepes at the Food Truck Fare in Court Square to show their support for food truck culture in Memphis. It was a glimpse at what a food trailer park in Memphis would be like. And the truth is, it would be awesome.
This afternoon, the city council has their third and final reading of an ordinance that would loosen the restrictions on mobile eats. It’s got the support of local restaurant owners as well as hundreds of you. Here’s hoping it passes and that we can all feast on mobile tacos soon.
