Something that has become very popular here in New Jersey is the food truck. People love variety and I believe the food truck offers variety and it is a different style of dining that people are enjoying, especially in good weather.

The food truck trend is very popular here in Ocean and Monmouth counties. We have many that make their way around our towns, some that are stationed at locations more steadily while others like to travel around and hit numerous spots and towns.

When it comes to food trucks it seems more "comfort" foods are popular. We decided to ask you at home which food trucks you love and like to hit when out in about, especially now during the summer months when so many folks in Ocean and Monmouth Counties are out and about here at the Shore. karl muscat karl muscat
