Food trucks on the move

Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Michael Young

Food Truck Un­der­ground has in­vaded Utah Val­ley and the re­sults are de­li­cious. This eclec­tic col­lec­tion of food trucks trav­els to var­i­ous lo­ca­tions around Utah County such as Provo, Orem, Lehi and Ea­gle Moun­tain weekly. The sched­ules are sub­ject to change, but here are some of the places you might catch Food Truck Un­der­ground:

Mon­days: Out­side the Scera Theater on Orem State Street. Tues­days: The Ranches in Ea­gle Moun­tain across from Mav­er­ick. Fri­days: Out­side the Scera Theater on Orem State Street.

Food trucks usu­ally fea­ture gourmet twists on familiar fa­vorites, a limited menu and freshly-pre­pared food. You can typ­i­cally pay with ei­ther cash or card and you will pay a lit­tle bit more for the qual­ity. But even though the food gets to you quickly, it’s not fast food in the tra­di­tional sense.

No two trucks are alike and so it pays to make some re­turn vis­its. The food truck roundup cur­rently fea­tures some of the fol­low­ing trucks, though the lineup is sub­ject to change:

Chedda Truck: gourmet burg­ers.

Sweeto Bur­rito: huge, fla­vor­ful bur­ri­tos.

Cup­bop Korean BBQ: ex­otic Korean bar­beque in a cup.

Mad Mac: deluxe ver­sions of mac and cheese.

Pizza Cones: cone-shaped pizza cre­ations with a wide se­lec­tion of toppings.

Waf­fle Love: warm waf­fles with a va­ri­ety of toppings.

Pizza 180: Street tacos with a global twist .

Art City Donuts: Mini gourmet donut mas­ter­pieces.

Fiore Wood Fired Pizza: Thin crust Ital­ian piz­zas.

Good Grindz: de­li­cious Hawai­ian food.

The Mat­ter­horn: Deluxe French toast cre­ations.

So far the re­sponse from the lo­cals has been strong as peo­ple stand in line for what is ef­fec­tively a large hand­ful of the restau­rants that roll into town just on cer­tain days. Come early for the best se­lec­tion as some trucks sell out, and then you might be stuck wait­ing for your next food truck fix.

Come of­ten, be­cause you never know what new sur­prise might be wait­ing for you.
