Check out Roaming Rooster’s menu here.
“In early 2015, Roaming Roosters was founded in Washington, D.C. by a family with a unique concept. The idea of a food truck with fried chicken that you could feel good about eating: free-range, grain-fed chicken served fresh every day. (more…)
hahaha thanks to Hollywood in DC for sending:
“Seen in @PoPville. Hilarious. Udderly genius! Parked near Howard University.”
Getting married, my children being born, being at the game when Werth hit the walkoff home run in the 2012 playoffs, and getting a pastrami sandwich named after me – happiest days of my life by far!
Check out Deco Deli’s complete menu here. You can try a PoP today at 18th and L Street, NW right in front of Nordstrom Rack.

“What food trucks are people talking about these days? I work at L’Enfant where we have a lot of trucks out front each day but the quality and options seems to have tanked. For every 1 good one there are about 9-10 mediocre to terrible ones.”
So what the hell happened? Saturated market? Too long lines? Better brick and mortar options for lunch? What are the good food trucks left that you genuinely enjoy?
From an email:
“WeWork, to celebrate its first-ever WeWork Creator Awards, is taking over food trucks all over town on Monday. The Creator Awards is a global program offering grants of $36k – $360k to creatives and entrepreneurs (the deadline application is Monday at midnight); the event, which features a pitching competition, Master Classes, a creator pop-up shop and more, takes place on March 28 at the Mellon Auditorium.

From a press release:
“What was once an old parking lot is now Lunch Box, Washington D.C.’s first and only lunchtime food truck pod.
Located in the heart of NoMa at First Street and N Street NE, Lunch Box is an outdoor venue where people can have lunch on orange picnic tables and play games amidst building-sized murals. Lunch Box is open to the public weekdays from 11AM – 2PM. Every Wednesday at noon, there will be free concerts, giveaways, and food trucks.
The Wednesday Concert Schedule is as follows:
September 30: Rew Smith (Rock)
October 7: Tony M (Acoustic/Rock)
October 14: Darcy Dawn (Pop/Rock)
October 21: Jason Masi (Acoustic/Soul)
October 28: Levi Stephens (R&B/Soul)
Lunch Box will operate through the end of the fall, shortly thereafter construction will begin on JBG and Brandywine Realty Trust’s N Street NoMa development. This phase of the mixed-use project will bring great new retail, including a 7-screen Landmark Theatre, as well as 220 residential units, 119,00 SF of loft office space, and an additional 250,000 SF of office space.”

I live in DC but I work in Silver Spring. One thing that always blows my mind is that food trucks don’t come to Silver Spring ever (notwithstanding the two permanent trucks in the gas station at Georgia and Colesville – both of which are very good!), although they go to other places in MoCo and way out in Virginia. I worked downtown for years, and I really miss having food trucks as a lunch option. Basically, they provide a great meeting place and offer a lot of creative, different, tasty, and local options that we don’t really have just over the line.
Any ideas as to why we don’t get food trucks? And, what can I/my fellow Silver Spring eaters do to woo the trucks in our direction? There are a lot of businesses and areas to park up there – it’d be worth it!”
