Charlotte Food Truck Guide

Delectable meals on wheels have far surpassed lunch break fare in popularity. Food trucks are quickly becoming a mainstay for wedding reception catering. These trendy trucks offer all the freshness and made-to-order delight of a food station set-up in an even fresher, inventive fashion. Of course you'll need to keep in mind that you'll need to plan for roughly one truck per 70-75 guests to avoid lengthy lines and grumpy guests. But if you're looking for a perfect way to surprise your invitees, look no further than the food truck. So, for your perusing pleasure, here are all the Queen City choices…
