Did you know that Food Trucks are Popping up all Over Grand Rapids?

I thought we only had 2 or 3, but we actually have several!  

I decided to hit the road and hunt down some of these trucks to try them for myself. All in the name of research…

On Friday evenings in the summer, Riverside Park hosts “Food Truck Fridays” from 5:00 – 9:00 PM. We also hit up the Tanger Outlets Food Truck event over Memorial Day weekend. These guys pop up all over West Michigan so check out our list at the end of this post for the upcoming food truck events near you!

 

Even Picky Kids can Find Tasty Fare at These Trucks

Sure, adults love a good food truck, but what about kids? What about kids who refuse to eat anything besides toast and fruit snacks?

You can still bring picky eaters to a food truck! I’ve included the kid-friendly options that I found on the various menus. If you have a picky kid like me who only eats chicken nuggets, French fries, and mac & cheese, you will appreciate the following list.

By no means are these all the food trucks in West Michigan, but these are the ones that have great kid-friendly options!

Do you know of other food trucks in Grand Rapids with kid-friendly menus? We’d love to hear from you in the comments section!
