Hit the Streets for Some of SLC's Best Eats
Food trucks have been an innate part of city life for about a decade, and have become a daily staple for office workers, foodies, and residents of downtown. Not only has the surge of food trucks elevated the dining scene in SLC, it's elevated the social scene as well. Fueled by the flexibility, low overhead, and a love for the streets, more and more chefs and entrepreneurs are joining the food truck ranks. 
Visit for a food truck listing and more information, such as locations, times and menus.
