There was a time when a new food truck announcement caused genuine excitement. Here are your favorites from 2013. That time seems to have passed, as OP writes:

“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?
